The article focuses on Frank Marchand, front-of-house engineer of the indie rock band Calexico. It mentions that it is Marchand's first tour with the band where he relies on house-provided P.A., console and monitor engineer. He prefers to mix mono because he wants the audience to hear what they see on stage. A couple of reverbs, a band-supplied Roland Space Echo and highpass filters are the only effects he used on the tour. It adds that Marchand provides mics to ascertain sound consistency.
