First 5000 Fingers Show at The Cat Club Opening for Meg Lee Chin

by Tobias on July 12, 2010

Another random find: First 5000 Fingers show at The Cat Club opening for @MegLeeChin.

Me (keys, guitar and live mixing), Steve Watkins (two drum sets), Mr. Where (noise guitar and yellow gloves), and Jason Mullins (AM radios).

I took the output from everyone, routed them into my rig and processed them in real time. I think I had Steve’s snare triggering Mr. Where’s noise guitar and then had it bounce around. Jason had three AM radios he kept spinning the dials on. I then would trigger some manually, had one triggered by steve’s kick, and another via his toms. We also played to backing tracks, but I wanted a live show. I know we opened with “Spoons, Forks & Knives”, played “White Light”, but I’m not 100% certain of the rest of the set.

Meg Lee Chin was headlining and she asked me two days in advance if I wanted to open. The lineup for 5000 Fingers until that phone call from Meg was just me.

I am so glad that my friends were able to join forces with no rehearsal and pull of one of the best shows 5000 Fingers ever did.
