This week we welcome Lucie Barinkova into the discussion hall. Lucie is a live sound engineer, tour manager, and production manager. Lucie has toured with Thundercat, Flying Lotus, The Hives, Refused, RX Bandits, Spoon, B-52s, The Knife, Spoon, Gaslight Anthem and currently is production manager for Usher and 88 Rising as well as working for many other bands that are not listed. Lucie is from Austria by way of Czech Republic. We get into a brief history of how her family fled communist Czechoslovakia and how she got into being a front of house engineer. In addition to her history, in this conversation we discuss her always having an accent in all the different languages she speaks, her first show doing sound for Oi Polloi, her production manger rider, studying to become a healer, her favorite kinds of bands to mix, feeling gratitude during the show, sneaking her way back across borders, dealing with The Hives onstage insanity and their sweaty stage suits and lots lots more. Thank you for listening!
