7. Dress Nice.
You are a reflection of me, so come on…step it up.
Not that I’m unsympathetic to your job, crawling under, over and around the stage in 100 degree heat on a dirt field in a fairground.
I’ve always wanted to ask (but actually don’t really care) who came up with the soundman wardrobe anyway? You know the one: the dirty shorts, the Nike shoes, the t-shirt with all the stains on it and the lanyard with the three dozen laminates on it.
Okay, I might wear jeans with holes in the knees, a t-shirt with the most obscure printing on it (least someone else can be seen with it), and a flannel shirt that I got from a thrift shop…but for you…I’m thinking a polo shirt and dockers.
Who said you ever looked cool to begin with…you’re a soundman, dude.
