    Good topic. Thinking about it, I felt like posting what I should have in my bag, rather than what I actually have in my bag. A sure sign that I need to sort backup plans out.

    My biggest pet peeve is DJ's that walk around with their headphones around their neck in the venue.
    If people like what you play, they'll be damn sure to see who you are.
