Suit and Flip-Flops?

Hey, so I have a show tonight and I was wondering if I could pull a suit with flip-flops off?
I like interesting style.
I will also have Hello Kitty sunglasses with me and I play in a folk rock band if that matters at all.

Personally, I find the whole "ironic for the sake of irony" to be just plain dumb. If you really want to stand out, be classy. Class is the way to go.

That and free guitar picks. Bitches love free guitar picks.

Some venues require people to wear full covered shoes (from guys).

Otherwise do it.

I ended up going with no suit jacket. Did wear a dress shirt, slacks, and glasses with flip flops though.
There should be some video up soon I could put up here.

wow you're not even playing bass, very try-hard

usually the ironic dressers are the bassists because nobody cares about us anyway and like us better when we wear intricate hats or go shoeless

but really how are you gonna be a singer and try to be "interesting", the more gimmicks, the less confident you look about yourself, the more nervous you seem, the less the audience cares

I just don't have dress shoes and find them uncomfortable.
I am behind the piano. what gimmicks? how is it try-hard?

I have played over 30 shows. I am not nervous at all on stage..... Especially that specific stage where I have played many acoustic nights.
