What a night! And a day, too! Yesterday! It rained turkeys the entire night before, and all morning, and all afternoon. I received a call in the early afternoon informing me that Bimbo’s 365 Club had lost power. My client asked if I could find a generator at the last minute, just in case. It wasn’t easy, but I found one and brought it with me. Fortunately, the power came back on and all went well. Still, it was an arduous day, and that was only day 2 of a 9-day stretch during which I have an event every single day. I’ll be ready to hibernate come the 19th!
Let me add– I love DJ’ing at Bimbo’s. I’ve been here a number of times over the years, both as a performer and an audience member, and never tire of the atmosphere. It may be my favorite San Francisco venue.
