is this Thursday. I am terrified.
Any advice in the forehand, get drunk, try to picture the audience naked?? etc..
you'll be ok - i've only done a few myself and par of the fun is feeling really scared before hand - once you are on it's fine and you just get on with it. (in my experience)
Have a couple to losen you up get on stage and have a great time! :D Where are you playing?
In Iceland, in Gaukur á Stöng if you have been in Reykjavík
thanks for the advice, I am like sweating now, like week before. Might just get a heart attack if I don´t calm down
I spent 2 hours waiting for a plane to Boston where I just stared out of the window. I REALY want to go SOOOOO SOOOO bad!
It went swimmingly. By which I mean it was rained off, so the nerves will continue for another two weeks yet. Let us know how your's goes...
a show, I have a rubbish gig. If I'm utterly petrified I know it's gonna be special :)
good one. I will remember that.:)
I am playing the keyboards and it´s REALLY fast..
I'm in gin panic
Have ONE drink.. something strong to calm the nerves... but don't get drunk.
Just have a good time, is my advice, although empathise because I feel sick before every gig. I hate being in that line of everyone's site.
it does help a little bit - although it's probably just a placebo.
don't eat too much, take water on stage with you. if you can go for a run in the morning because it helps to keep you calm. don't drink too much
and some other homeopathic concoctions.
They are working.
even when i'm not nervous i use it. it doesn't taste particularly nice though - bit nauseating itself! still better than beta-blockers
Whatever you do, just... get drunk...
i once left my cymbals still on a drum kit and walked off close to tears thinking someone had stolen them all..
you'd have left the cymbals whatever, staz. YOU FOOL.
it was ripping my insides apart. and i had just played metal covers for your song.. it was an emotional night.
you bloody lightweight.
and a bit of a cry. works for me!
the first gig for which you've been in the audience. I thought that was a bit weird. Mine was Meatloaf, with my mum :)
that if the first gig goes badly, you must give up IMMEDIATELY and become an accountant instead.
hahahaha lol okey:) I promise
the real music fans will stand at the front and stare at you smilinglessly throughout the gig with an entertain-me look on their faces. How much they appreciate your performance will be the deciding factor in the longetivity and success of your band.
