Firstly....

What exactly would you describe as 'gut wrenching stuff' - are we talking about a bit of mainstream funky house, R&B - or, Agadoo and the Birdie Song?

Don't knock the Birdie Song - it is an important part of our cultural heritage!

This is still a paying gig and therefore an earning opportunity while waiting for a better gig. Even playing stuff you don't like is getting you out there and potentially making more contacts for the stuff you do like? The worldwide economy is imploding so if I were in your position I think I'd do the job, take the money and run. I would want industrial strength earplugs while playing the birdie song though

I agree with saxman. Work is work. Work leads to better work. No work doesnt. Wear your ipod and pretend you are actually playing the junk that you listen to.

Just noticed this:

How can anyone object to this? Utterly brilliant.

I say take the job. Worse comes to the worse, you can just plug an iPod Shuffle in and nip out to the pub.

well i turned it down, the work was going to finish at 02:00hrs and my other gig starts then but seeing as what you guys put i said if a 01:00hrs close pops up il take it if possible, and Trev what i listen too is well structured melodic, skillfully crafted un repetitive (it has the occasional crash) house music so put that in your pipe
