    Groupies are great for doing your evil bidding (includes holding up speakers)... offer free entry and allowing them to leave their coat in the DJ box as well if you want to sweeten the deal.

    Cost $0, the look on their face after 4 hours PRICELESS

    I would suggest you start becoming popular in hobbit circles (elijah wood will help out a fellow DJ for sure with his list of contacts)

    Don't put the rack in, then screw them to your booth for safety.

    if I were in your situation I would run down to the supermarket and steal a ton of crates from the back and stack those. ghetto but you have to do what you have to do

    I saw someone make some decent stands from ikea desk legs... if you dont have an ikea around you can check hardware stores, they have similar kinds of legs
