- Countdown Entry #29
- 4:22 PM, Wednesday, September
- What a roller coaster of emotions.
I again hand the story telling over to my phone
- 9/22/99 7:00 PM "cool, ingenious" Losing
my mind in glee as I listened to this voicemail.
Says he doesnt know what venue it can work at
in Vegas because its so new
if he wasnt ready for how different it was,
but not that that was a deterrent
wanted to know exactly when I was coming and gave
me his HOME PHONE NUMBER to call him back. It will
be hard to sleep tonight.
- 9/23/99 2:30 PM called robs home
number and left a message. Called his cell and left
a message. Called his work and left a message.
Cant do much more than that.
- 9/27/99 4:00 PM got ahold of him at
home!!! HE SAID CALL BACK IN ABOUT 15 MINUTES. I am
extremely nervous. Jesus.
- 9/27/99 4:15 PM and now the depression
hits. I will have to work Vegas like columbus, and
he suggests NOT quitting my job. So how the fuck do
I do that? We talked for about 20 minutes
hope CD101 isnt mad. Fuck me. His Company
only hires for BIG things. The Dawn in Dawn
Productions books live acts, but bands
I wouldnt go over. He suggested bringing all
of my promotional stuff out to Vegas for a week and
pushing it hard. Going through the phone books and
hoofing it. Then seeing the response to the Video
Tapes, and then going from there. I would have to
do this ASAP though. In order have a pretty clear
reaction by November. Jesus, thats the only
way to pull this off. Do I go alone? I may have to.
Wow. Leave some Friday night with A BUNCH of video
tapes and come back a week from that Monday.
Cant I call ahead of time? Thats what
Ill do. Ill just make appointments for
OH SHIT! WHAT ABOUT MY GIGS HERE? DAMNIT. I have
none the first week of November. So I leave on the
29th of October, and come back on the 7th or the
8th. Does Jessica come? Oh god. Where will I find
the money? AHHH! So much to think about. Good god.
Well. Thats what Ill do. (sigh).
- After putting so much work into
everything here, and not really getting anywhere, the
thought of doing the same in a week's time in Vegas is
daunting. I really thought some of these booking
agents would be able to help. I guess I was
naive. I really thought my tape would blow him
- That, and the Eventco thing is
shaky at best. I won't know more until we're
almost into December. So stressful. I've pretty much
told everyone December 27th is my date. I'm gone. If
I don't do it I'll never do it...but giving up a
salaried job, with hardly anything left in the
bank - with a group of sets I can't update
because of ABOT. AHHH.
- In happier news I got the Gallery
Hop gig so I'll be playing this Saturday, the day
after Polaris. It's free, but it's fun. In fact it
should be a really fun couple of days, cheer me up for
sure. Boru's is really the only bright spot, and hell
even that might be dead after such a lackluster crowd
in Powell the last time.
- And tonight is FM. Ugh, another
free show. It's a cool lookin' club, hopefully it can
impress some people. I guarantee I'll get the same
"You should go to Vegas" comment after
Road like I have 3 times
before. (sigh) What a crazy month, from ABOT to
Vegas... I can only imagine what October will
