My 24 hours of production madness started on Friday night at Harvelle’s in Santa Monica, CA. My good friends Vintage Trouble ( Facebook / Twitter) have been overseas touring heavily in the U.K. and were back for a brief break before finishing the year out overseas. For their last state side show of the year we did two 75 minute crazed sweaty sets.

There was a line down the street that I haven’t seen the likes of in awhile. All in all a great night that ended at 2AM…with a 5AM wake up call to head to LAX for my next gig.

My first gig with Fuel ( Facebook / Twitter ) was at the Bonehead BBQ at Fort Mason in downtown San Francisco. We’ll be hitting the road for 2 months next week, but first we flew up north on Saturday morning to play this radio-sponsored festival style show with Cheap Trick and Stone Temple Pilots.

I thoroughly enjoyed mixing Fuel’s set. Really great, tight band that I got to mix for the first time on Avid’s SC-48 console from my favorite line of VENUE consoles. It’s going to be a great tour.

After our set we packed up guitars, hit the airport, and flew home. An insane 24 hours, but I love it. This is why I do what I do. I live for days like this.
