The Tri-Nations tests seem to be having huge "nuts-to-butts" crowds, so I'd hope outdoor gigs are at least available for those who want them.I’m starting band rehearsals again in the next week. First time since late March.
We’ve done a pretty hard lockdown here in Melbourne. Twice. The first one wasnt as strict, and we clearly opened up a little early, a second wave hit within a month or two. Bang, hard lockdown for about 4 months straight. No house guests, need a reason to leave home, couldn’t be more than 5km from your house without a work permit, obviously no hospitality, entertainment or sporting events.
They’ve been played a fair bit further up the east coast in Sydney (850km from here), Newcastle (1,000km) and Brisbane (1,750km) in states (New South Wales & Queensland) that luckily never really got that 2nd wave. Most states shut the borders to each other too. I think the Northern Territory hasn’t had a ‘community transmitted’ case since April.The Tri-Nations tests seem to be having huge "nuts-to-butts" crowds, so I'd hope outdoor gigs are at least available for those who want them.
The clubs that shut down around here weren't exactly amazing (in fact, they were mostly pretty seedy), but they were good for a stop on the local circuit every couple months. My city was already losing live opportunities to DJs anyway, so it wasn't a surprise that some folded altogether.for a lot of these amazing bars/pubs/venues to hold on during the shutdown.
She canceled. : (Supposed to have a gig(inside...incidental music with dinner. New York State) with my sisters band on Dec. 12, but she is very nervous about doing so, especially with COVID on the rise again. She asked the band today what they think.(I don’t know replies yet) I thought if she’s going to be nervous about it, best to cancel. I’m ok either way, but would be nice to play but want to be cautious. At this point for one gig maybe just better to wait.
