The spot duos are a nice throw back to the pin spots in old rock shows.  They also throw a narrow enough beam that they are bright enough to cut through.  I love them and I would like to add four more fixtures. 

I went to a Green Day show and I have this evil plan, now if I only had more money...

It's definitely a slippery slope.

A friend took a few short videos at our gig last night.  You can see a few more of the scenes we use.

Running lights while playing is very difficult! Those scenes are great, and you're not trying to overdue it. Really nice vocals BTW - give the guys my complements.

We now have a light guy, so I'm not having to do both. That really made my night for NYE. He's new at it, and actually runs it to the music quite well. I just need him to not be so blinky - flashy - strobey. Here's our NYE at midnight (facebook link, may not work):

  Doesn't happen. I mean the uncontrolled flashing fixture, this is one of those cases where a small impedance mismatch doesn't have any effect. Wireless DMX.. now that is another story.

Yes, it does.  Don't let the lack of failure lead to think everything is fine.

Perhaps on the scale of a band doing lights at the pub you might not have routine trouble but you just haven't found the troublesome combination of cables & fixtures that sends various lights off into their own little world... give it time, Paul.  You *will* have this happen.
