NQC 10: Wednesday night
The mono thing seems to be fixed with the streaming feed, and the sound seems at the very least to suck less than in year’s past, perhaps even improving a bit.
As for the instrument pit (the doughnut hole where live musicians have been positioned on the mainstage), it doesn’t seem to be a hit. Madison Easter tweets that “it looks like we’re playing around the Sarlacc from Jedi.” I gather that’s a compliment.
Another performer emailed to say it felt like being a shark tank. Not sure who’s the shark and who’s the chum in that image, but whatever. Again: not a compliment. In general, this strikes me as the kind of flawed and not very well thought-through idea from someone out of ideas about how to make things (more) interesting. But maybe I’ll change my mind when it see (and hear) for myself.
