Geeks Found At Duran Duran Concert

How can you tell a geek at a Duran Duran concert? He's the guy over talking to the sound crew and checking out the equipment.

And who did I find there? Mark Brnich, director of technical services for Eighth Day Sound. He was in charge of the audio at the concert.

Oh, I'm so excited! He's a Tablet PC fan. In fact, he was using a Motion Tablet PC to run the hall's audio. He says he loves his Tablet PC because it replaced a whole rack of gear. I wish I remembered the name of the app that was running on it. It was quite cool looking. He had digital access to all the amps.

Oh, and you Mac fans? His crew was using a Mac to record the concert. The keyboardist had another Mac up on stage, presumably to load various samples into his keyboards.

The lighting? Was done by a custom board that had a computer and display screens in it. They didn't know if it was running Windows, but it sure looked like it.

The concert? Was great, but we'll never go back to the Everett Event Center again. They ushers there were downright rude and the accoustics just weren't what I expect.

During the concert at one part a video was running on the screens behind the band. In it they made fun of the music industry with its "falling profits." Basically made fun of the industry's anti-MP3 stance. In the cartoon they blew up a building with a sign denoting "EMI" which, in the cartoon, stood for "Endangered Music Industry." That made points with the fans at the concert.
