Schedule and Directions

For those who are playing the show, here are the UPDATED directions to the studio and to the new Under the Couch venue.

Get to Under the Couch¬†at 7:30 PM. Here’s how the schedule should work:

NOTE: If for any reason, no Live at WREK member is there when you arrive, let the other Student Center staff know you are here and begin to carry in your equipment to the Under the Couch venue stage. The new venue is on the cafeteria end of the second floor and has wonderful acoustics; the recordings are often live album quality.

We were formerly on the circular, downstairs stage, located adjacent to Taco Bell and Subway; this is not the correct location any longer.

7:30pm – Band shows up, starts setting up. Live at WREK crew start hauling and setting up equipment.
8:15pm – Band mostly done setting up. Live at WREK crew set up equipment; they can’t generally set up much until the band finishes setting up and gets out of the way.
8:30pm – Band starts soundchecking for monitor mix.
9:00pm – Band continues soundcheck, this time for the broadcast mix.
9:40pm – Band gets a 20 minute break.
10:00pm – Start of Live at WREK radio show.
11:00pm – End of Live at WREK radio show.
11:30pm – Everything is broken down and put away. Band van is loaded. Recording is transferred to USB drive provided by band.

If the band doesn’t show up at 7:30, then the schedule slides: the band still has to load in and set up. The Live at WREK equipment still must be set up. What gets lost is the soundcheck. If we start the show without a soundcheck, it will start out sounding really bad. So please show up on time. Or else people will think you suck. And you don’t, right?
