Should I try out for this band?

Hey, Pit! Nice to see you all again! So I was looking on craigslist for a new band and found one that fits my style of music, sounds like they have potential and are extremely close to where I live (and looking for a bassist). The problem is, I still have yet to get a job, I'm only 18 (the rest of the band is about 24), and my gear is not gig-worthy (although that can be redeemed by the money that I get from graduation in a couple weeks).

So my question is, is that too many problems and should I not even bother because it isn't realistic or should I just go for it and potentially waste their time?

You got nothin' to lose by trying out. If they're really paying attention and you are really a good fit, your skill will outshine your gear.

If having a job is an issue, it's best you look for a weekend kinda band instead.
Age doesn't really matter unless they say so (though it might be an issue if they're looking to play in bars without any trouble).
Gear shouldn't be an issue if you clarify the graduation money thing with them.

Overall, I dunno. Do whatever makes you happy.

...But you'll still never be as successful as The Joshua Garcias.

Have the Joshua Garcias even produced anything? It seems that collaboration thread died.

Craigslist? Stay safe TS. You wouldn't want to end up face down in a ditch after being gang raped.

I noticed that too. I wasn't sure on that either, actually. I think everyone willing to participate was waiting for someone to make the first move, but nobody made it because everyone was too busy waiting on someone to make the first move.

^^But that guy is reassuring.

Go for it, but don't spend your graduation money on gig gear until you're sure that you want to do this band and are invested in it enough.

do it.
tell them that you're gonna be grabbing gear soon and that you want in. Surely you'll only be rehearsing for a little while anyway and won't exactly need gig ready gear

This man speaks the truth. I've never been in a band before.

I've already been in a band so, according to that logic, I'm doomed.

The age thing is what really worries me. 24 Doesn't seem that old but really that's 6 years older than me. That's a lot of years.
