Roxx's Session Chatter

Augustana/Scars on 45 Technical Riders

  • Print

Remember when bands would send out riders requesting things like "no green M&M's?" Although we are a radio station and not a club, we still get some interesting requests and I wondered if you might find them interesting.

The strangest requests I believe came from Scott Weiland's entourage, asking for several BLACK towels, and most of the ingredients that I believe make up the hot pepper/cleanse diet.

For this week, the focus is on p.a. equipment requested by our 2 bands. You will see how one varies from the other. We have some amazing equipment, but like to keep it simple. It always surprises me to see requests for tube amps, specific microphones, monitors, and headphones for our "unplugged" performances.

Augustana joins us Thursday, February 24th at noon for Lunch in the Library.

This is (the) Tour Manager for the band Augustana. The guys are really looking forward to this weeks appearance. 
I have attached for you both, the most recent tech rider for this show. We decided to bring a last minute pedal steel guitar player for this trip, so our needs have changed since the last rider you were given.
Please look over and let me know what concerns you might have?
