No problem.  I was especially impressed by the video footage.  What do you
use again?  Do you have it on a tripod/stabilizer?  If not, you have some
steady hands.

I'd also like to hear more from Golden Grrrls *and* Brilliant Colors.  BTW,
both tomzero and I have seen Jess Stone of BC in her day job as an Amoeba
SF clerk.  So would like to get these upped, at your convenience of course.

This is great advice from The Finest Kiss (found out through reading their
blog they take their name from a Boo Radleys track...)

"I have said this before here, and it applies to not only bands playing but
anytime you are speaking, acting, or doing anything in front of an
audience: don’t dwell on the bad. Oftentimes you are the only one that
notices. When you incessantly bring attention to it then you become the
distraction/problem. People are paying to hear you play, you are
professionals. If the sound is sub-par in your monitor deal with it and
carry on."

Veronica Falls isn't the only Slumberland act bit by that malady.  It's
even worse when you dwell on it after the fact in social media.
Not only you're often the only person that notices, you're often the only
person that *cares*.  This is not chamber music, but a descendent of
punk/post-punk y'all are playing.  We can deal.
