Venue Struggles

Just being notified that projector screens are NOT provided in the venue that I planned to perform at this Friday. Also having the conflict of my featured performers who are underage, only having the privilege of performing (which I’m grateful of) but doesn’t have the privilege to even have a drink of water or urinate in this bar setting. Understanding the scene but it limits me not as a performer but more so as an artist. I can’t show the wide range of what I can do and set myself apart without the proper materials. “1/3 filmmaker 1/3 photographer and 1/3 emcee” are thirds that completes me and I can’t even push that motto to the fullest in some of these venues. We need more tech savvy and 18+ spaces. #VisualPerformerProblems
