Over the last few decades I've discovered one constant that I find pretty humorous: Your piddly band (I've been in plenty of these!) gets a booking at a club and it's a dead night - very few show up...nobody's dancing...it's just one of those nights. Before the end of the evening, somebody in the band will comment about the lack of audience and it never fails...the response is, "Oh yeah...that's right...The Pink Slips are playing at the Ampitheater tonight." As if, that's the reason nobody showed for your gig. It doesn't matter if you're in a hardcore punk band...if nobody shows up, it's because Conway Twitty is at the local music hall. As if anybody who had gone to the Conway Twitty show would have come to the Stink Bar to see your punk band anyway. "Man, slow crowd tonight...oh yeah, that's right...Robert Goulet is at the Performance Theater."
