Okay, So we have a gig coming up soon and we want to play a cover. Is it better to play it first and get the crowd listening? In the middle to keep the set going? Or last to go out with a bang?

i would open and close with them, depending on how many songs youre playing.

what we usually do is just in the middle of a show...break out randomly in the cover we planned to play...but we dont announce it to the audiance

My band usually plays the covers in the middle too, and the lead singer announces them like "This is a song that I'm sure most of you know" or "Here's one that you might recognize" or something like that.

My band used to play a lot of covers, especially in the middle of our set, but now that weve been around for awhile and have a small following, we've cut out most of our covers. We do end every set with "RAMONES", simply because its got a nice hook.
