It's actually a place that has two locations, packs their own crowd, and our job is to entertain their crowd. Sounds simple, right ? Well first of all, it's in a beach/condo area, and people call the cops alot, the place has been cited a $400 penalty last week (before we played there) or possibly the competition down the street who has been in business decades longer, & sicked the dogs on the place, because they are louder and never get cited. So we get load in all of our gear , and had to wait over an hour, because they sat a birthday party down of many adjoined tables in our playing area, hampering us from setting up. Since we get a $75 tab on the house, we decided to use that time for a dinner break since setup was a wash. So after an hour, the manager says, "oh by the way, if we get cited, the $400 citation money comes out of your pay, if the cops get called" We asked why they didn't let us know about that earlier in the week when they booked the gig and gave us the chance to accept or decline those terms in advance, & why they decided to spring it on us before set up, after driving all the way there with our gear, loading it in, then waiting over an hour w/our thumb up our @$$. We declined to do the gig and decided not to roll the dice on some crotchety condo douche calling the cops. They charged us full price for the dinner tab because we didn't play. Great way to cap off the night !
