my band is playing at our school battle of the bands in a little over a month but we are playing at a venue with all seats with an area up the front for moshing but the school is to stingy to hire some security guards to control the crowd so what can i do as lead guitarist/singer to get the crowd going?

call and repeat, tell them they're nice, a great audience, etc.

Uh, let's see...there's the classic "audience clapping" or the "hands in the air", theres the "only audience sings", talking to them e.g "Do you like ROCK N' ROLL?!?!" bit. I saw a singer point to a crowd and they'd say "YEAH!". Wherever he pointed, that part of the crowd said "YEAH!". I don't know very many tricks, but hope that helps.

Would your school tolerate a small amount of swearing? Because a little french goes a long way... Have aLOT of energy when you go up there, show you have all this energy, run around having a great time, scream into the microphone things that would normally be whispered, just go nuts, you may look a little arrogant, but if your going to stand there with your face glued to your fretboard the whole show, everyone else is gonna be the same way....
