Here are some images of Nick Moss & The Flip Tops when they played at Wilebski's Blues Saloon on Saturday, 04-09-11. A link to more images toward the end of this post.
I saw that the stage lights weren't on while the Nick and the band was playing. I went to one employee who said that he couldn't reach the can for one of the lights that was on stage right. Later I saw him trying to reach it with a broom, but it didn't work. There are several lights above the stage that weren't on and those were the ones I was really wanted to have turned on.
After a little bit I saw another employee and asked him if he could have someone turn on the overhead lights. Well, he just looked at me and walked away. I will give him the benefit of the doubt he didn't hear me...but I really think he heard me!
The next day I went back to Wilebski's for another show. Once again I saw that the overhead stage lights weren't on. It took three of us running around to find someone to turn the lights on.
Then on Friday, 04-16-11, I went to see Candye Kane. Same thing! The overhead stage lights weren't turned on. I went to one employee who told me to tell the sound guy. Twenty minutes later the lights were finally turned on.
I think someone needs a check list!!!!!
