13, 2002 - (Club Front - the first concert of the
Our debut ... first concert in a club FRONT 13
There was no particular excitement... We played before
"our" people and had fairly much rehearsals
(for half a year or more). It was quite unusual to
play on the stage focusing only on drums and vocals.
Guitars mix on the stage was badly done, sound mostly
reflected from the floor, so we played "blind"
... or I can say "deaf".
The first two songs (Night and Black Label) gone
a bit blurry, but then all the musicians came together
and played well. Bass guitarist and vocalist had no
problems, but both guitarists and drummer had troubles
- I have fought for half a concert with the ever-falling
microphone stand (why was it falling and bedning all
the time I still do not understand ...) Alexander
sounded too quiet and no one heard him, so and he
added volume on the processor only at the end of the
concert. Kirill said he played crookedly because of
the of the wry drum installation - he had to play
with his snare drum constantly sliding down onto his
Some words about the people's reaction. Everyone
spoke of the band BLACK LABEL in a very positive way,
and that certainly can not please all of us (Black
Label musicians). We received a proposal to play at
other festivals, but I won't speak about that yet...
It's a pity that we didn't see some close friends
on our first gig, but I'm very pleased that, despite
the ticket price (the price was 50 rubles per person)
there was quite a large number of friends, girlfriends,
relatives, without whom our gig would not make any
sense. Thanks a lot!
