My band was going to play at this festival tomorrow (on Thursday). We were asked to play there well over a month ago. And yesterday our guitarist got a phone call where he was informed that everything is cancelled. They hadn't gotten a license from the police department to keep this festival. I mean, how stupid can you get? They had hired the place, the bands and the PA equipment, they had already advertised it everywhere and two days before the happening they start applying for the license. They didn't get it and now everything is cancelled. Apparently it was one guy's job to get it and it had sort of gotten left until the last minute and now he can't get it anymore, or something. I bet that guy won't get the job the next time.
Luckily we have a gig coming up in an under a month old bar next Saturday so I won't have to be away from the stage exitement for too long.

Not very bass related but band related anyway.
Maybe I should have made the title - 'Bass Player Misses a Gig'
Then I quess it would have been bass related.
