I was watching Stevic’s Shitshow (it is the guitar player of Twelve Foot Ninja). He recently released an interview with Devin Townsend on his YouTube channel. One of the recommendations in the sidebar was this video. No matter if you like the music or not, this video is a damn great example on how to deal with things really going sideways and technical problems are keeping you from starting your show.
I am not particularly talking about the jokes or content of how he entertained the people, but I know of many people who simply would have left the stage and wait for the time when problems would be solved. So good of him to make fun of it and entertain the people in Barcelona.
