I do lighting for a local production company. We just did a concert for a local college's homecoming. The headliner was a well known act. The college booked the act, then sent us a list of gear for us to provide; we never received a rider, just a lighting plot. For audio we provided "racks and stacks" (amp racks, and speakers); the band traveled with their own mics, and consoles. Lighting (as the plot stated) was a 120k show, plus ACLs, lekos, and moving lights. I send a couple emails back and fourth to the LD asking about truss placement and a gel substitution. Day of the event load in began at 6am, and the band's crew showed up just before their load in at 10am. I met the touring LD, asked how what I had setup so far looked. He said everything looked great, and out of curiosity I asked what console he was touring with. He responded "Oh, we don't travel with a console." Since there was not a console on the bid, I did not pack a console. The venue assumed that the band was traveling with a lighting console because they were traveling with audio consoles. The venue wasn't paying for a console, so we didn't bring one (although I seriously considered bringing one for testing/backup.) Luckily the venue has a PAC attached, and was able to bring over an ETC Element. The LD admitted to never having seen the rider, and the venue PM admitted to just assuming they were touring with a console.
