Anyone know what the start time is...I was sure it was posted but can't seem to find it? I know I'm working job #1 tommorrow day. I might be working job#2 tommorrow evening which is right around the corner from the venue...time,time,will I have time to change or do I run over in my silly monkey outfit?

As usual, Deckuf states that the doors open at 8pm, but they haven't posted a start time for the actual show. Since there's an opening act (Jacob Two-Two), I'd guess that the first band would go on around 10pm, buuuuttt Franke is supposed to do two sets, one upstairs, one downstairs (even though there are bands downstairs), so they might have things start earlier than normal to accommodate the between-set moving times.

On the other hand, things could change at the last minute (say, if Dekcuf gets its license back [he said, hopefully]), and we might be on a regular timetable, or something completely different.

My advice is to work the shifts you have to, then haul mass to Dekcuf in your monkey suit; bring a change of clothes with you, and de-monkey in the ladies' room. Alternately, maybe arrange to call someone (who'll be at the show with a cell phone) after your shift to see if whether things are underway or not.
