So I was thinking about buying a power generator and just going to an old abandoned warehouse and start hosting shows.

Looking for any feedback really, if anybody else has done this and knows exactly
which power generator is best or whatever.

Surely you'd need the deed to this abandoned place?

"Why is it like.. top secret?"

Me and the other UGers swear by Crazy Chapman's 5000KW generator.

^ AHHHHHHHHHHHH! HOW DOES IT CHANGE LIKE THAT!

What creature uses that! Missingo?! zalgo?


Be sure to invite UG to these gigs...

If it's successful then you can host gigs where the audience is mostly UG and all the performing acts are UG people. It'll bring the community closer. :3


Or push it further... who knows.

It'd be a bit difficult...I mean, you'd be able to stick some amps and whatnot up.
But would you be able to also get the mixing desk and all that shizz?
#11
Yeah that's going to be illegal dude.

Not so much a license as permission. You need somewhere you can rent, or own if at all possible. And you'll need to discuss it with local authorities to see how late they'll let you do it. It depends on location and how much noise is going to be generating outside of the building and what hours. Good luck with that tho. Don't skip those steps or you're going to be in an awful state by the end of it.

Do it somewhere ridiculously isolated so there are no legal problems.

I find the best way to get power is to get a handful of slaves, let's say about 40 of them, and a huge wooden wheel, like the one hamsters have, but much bigger. Then, you get the slaves to take the wheel apart and use the wood to build a big pyre, which you can use to power a steam turbine connected to a generator.

Generator won't really work. You're going to be pulling alot of power from one generator to power amps, pa, and what ever else you will have. Plus the generator will fluctuate in power etc.

You would be better off actually finding a place thats in decent condition that has electricity and doing it legally.

Just make sure the bands you host play original material. Cover songs without you paying a performance license from ASCAP/BMI can result in copyright infringement and you getting a lawsuit.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Sounds cool, but do you plan on charging people an entrance fee? I think that's a bad idea if doing it illegally; you'll end up in way more shit if caught. Have some CDs on sale instead.

Yeah, ok. But when ever you run out of power because your little cheap generator couldn't handle the pull of amplifiers, mics, pa, lights and what ever else and everyone leaves you'll see my point.
