Sound Geek Dream

I dreamed I was doing sound for a Karen Brandow (w/o Charlie King) show and it was a really good show but I hadn't had a chance to do a sound check and I hadn't been the one to set up the board so I kept trying to turn up her guitar but I was turning up the wrong mic because nothing was labeled. Then in the middle of the show one of our volunteers started pitching for IMC funds which we normally do but not in the middle of a set, we do it between sets. So I'm all freaked out that Karen is going to be pissed that we cut into her set, but she smiles at us and says "thanks for remembering to do that". But then she starts packing up her guitar like the show is over. And the crowd thinks the show is over. And I'm trying to figure out how to nonchalantly get everything started again without weirding anyone out. Then I wake up.
