IFE was the host troupe for the Friday lineup at the Hideout tonight. That means that we take care of various show-related duties like selling and taking tickets, running sound and lights, bringing snacks and booze for the other performers, and so on. I wound up actually hosting the Threefer slot, warming up the audience, telling them what they were about to see, introducing the acts, making announcements about other shows and classes, all that. I think I kind of suck at it. I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing wrong, but it feels really wrong. I need to start paying closer attention to what other hosts - good ones - are doing for a while, and see if I can't do that. Time to break out the little black book of notes again, I guess.
