Was asked to play first as the second band had friends they hoped were coming who weren't there yet, not a problem.

rig this year:

Subscape Annex Signal2011

Chapman Stick (cello bow in upper left)
Z-Vex SHO (almost hidden, it's directly down from the Stick cable and near the Stick headstock)
E-Bows (partly blocking the SHO - I brought three as backups as they're small)
Whirlwind A/B selector (the open strings on the Stick are sensitive, the AB box helps as a silent mute switch)
Akai Headrush looper
Moog MF-105B Bass MuRF
Moog MF-104SD analog delay
Boss RC-20 looper
Boss RC-20XL looper
digital clock (used to remind myself when I should be wrapping up)

I'd worked out a complex rig that turned the loop block and the FX block into a giant FX loop, then decided I didn't need that elaborate a rig for this performance and went with a comparatively simple setup. Almost never use a bow on Stick but decided to try it out after seeing Tony Levin do so earlier this month. Worked out ok.

Did not use: the two extra E-Bows.

As usual I stayed for the entire show (I try very hard to do so: I like seeing others' work and also leaving after my set tends to make me feel as though I'm being rude to the other performers) and I'm glad I did: the other performances were all interesting to me. My compliments to PAS for best use of an inflatable zebra: with contact mics it became a percussion instrument.

The inflatable zebra was brought by PAS Musique and oddly enough was not part of the gear for the band Balloon Animal Farm.
