I am playing a graduation party show and we can either play outdoors or in the basement. If we end up playing outside what considerations must we take to still sound good? Like will the drums sound louder or quieter outdoors etc... I remember hearing something about this before but I forget. Thanks for the help!

Well outside there's more room to get exercise, and fresh air of course.

Oh... playing with a band.

Bring stuff to protect your gear in case it rains.

Everything sounds better outdoors.

Depends. How big is the indoor venue?

You know, playin' in a basement offers a lot of difficulties. Number one being, you're playin' in a basement!

So if we are in a basement playing we wont have to mic the amps but if we are outside we will have to mic the amps? Im talking generally here.

Here, one of the best gigs I've been to was in a basement.
