So Smash has asked UNAVERZ to join his ‘Big Bad Wolf’ (that’s what they call their system when they put all three of the ‘Little Pig’ Kliptch sound systems together on a single stage) at the underground Fractal Fire festival in Tracy. The show is on a privately owned farm and runs from 6pm Friday to 6am Saturday and involves 36 DJs on three different stages.
Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity to work with Smashwolf Productions . Our crew has just purchased the Barhinger X32 Rack and we are dying to test it out. Friday will be our chance.
There is only one minor problem. Well, two actually. UNAVERZ was loaded with ‘stuff’ and has not been driven since September. Never one to let a little work get in the way of a good time, I hit American Steel around 10. It took me almost 3 hours to get her all cleaned out. Sheesh!
She is all rusty! We are going to have to address this soon.
Starting her up produced the most noxious gas. After freaking out that she may need a major mechanical fix (replaced fuel injectors are $500+ each!), Adam assured me that if I just ran her hot for a while she would clear herself out. Sure enough, a single round trip to Albany to pick up the sound system did the trick!
Thank you to Seth for helping load the drivers. Woot.
Smash showed up around 1 on Wednesday and we proceeded to perform a sound check. Oh how sweet it is! We are back in business!!
