Loaded!

Updated: Sep 4, 2019


Heading out to Potter Violins to set up for tomorrow night’s show in Takoma Park! 10 minutes to pack the car. I’ll be timing the load out and set up. My goal is to be able to go from unloaded to set in under an hour when I have to do everything myself—including lights and audio. All of it fits comfortably in the back of a hatchback. If I need the back seat in the future, I’ll need to invest in a container for the roof rack.


My equipment list is below. Need to make a couple of edits, but it’s great to have a list to keep my ADD brain from leaving behind something important. Not such an issue when I’m doing a local show where I can be home in 30 minutes, but essential for any future road trips!


We’ve got almost 60 folks coming. A great house for this show. Still room for more! www.MissRainsong.com for Tix!
