R: gig spam and question about playing outdoors

Playing outdoors, sonically speaking is slightly different from playing
indoors. If you'll need way more volume or a different equalisation can
vary, depending on the dimension of the place you're gonna play in.
Generally you'll need more power, but if it is in a gallery (or in a small
square) you won't have to care that much of the volume difference. What
changes most is the sound diffusion. Generally (at least in my experience)
I've used way lower volume indoor that I had to use outdoor. Just think at
the effect of a Marshall 100 watts head turned to full power in a bar or in
a stadium to get the difference. Think that outdoor a volume of 500 or more
watts could be low (or in some cases not enough).
