The article offers suggestions on playing music in a small club which has inadequate apparatus. The author suggests that even if there are only two monitors onstage, one should play to it. Ideally, the lead vocalist needs to hear him or herself and perhaps a bit of the main rhythm instrument to stay in-tune for the song, says the author. One can try a small mixer out of one's M-Box that will send one output to FOH and another output to another small amplifier for the stage.
