It's always good when they ask if you are vending and tell you where to go. We got a nice spot near the middle of shakedown and setup. It was still super early, so no customers were even there yet, so I didn't pull out my rock cases for a while. It ended up raining on us a couple times during the day but cleared up before most of the people got there. Here is everybody hiding from the short downpour.
It was a really fun time. We were making sales right through the start of the show, then packed up and went in.
It was a cool venue because it was all general admission and it was a small venue so it was easy to get close.
I wandered up closer a couple times but it was a small lawn and I was pretty tired from running the booth all day so we relaxed and danced on the lawn.
I was a little worried when we got back out to shakedown because there were rumors circling around that there wouldn't be a blowout. Well rumors are not always true. A staff member stopped in and said, "U guys need to be out of here by 6 AM". Every other venue is usually chasing us out with cops and sirens before 1 AM so it was really nice to be able to pack up and organize everything without felling rushed and pressured.
Thanks Porthsmouth for an awesome finish to the first leg of tour.
