Have any of you had a gig go tits up? I had a gig today at a college fest where we played some RATM, Limp Bizkit and The Bomb Song (Them Clones). Pretty easy songs which we'd nailed at the studio in about a day. The practice jam sessions were off the charts, the songs were amazing.

On stage, the guy doing the sound setup ****ed us over! We started with Take a look around, and half way through the song, the dude mutes the bass and rhythm ( I was on bass). He turns the volume back up and again mutes it during the bass and drums only part. I felt ****ed on stage. Literally like a deer caught in the headlights. One second Im playing, the next Im like, wtf just happened?!?!?!?!

We sorted that out after the song, got everything equalized again, and we played Bulls on Parade. I dont know what the dude was doing, but half way through, he puts in massive delay/reverb on bass. Got completely ****ed again. It was not funny man! Looking stupid on stage is not cool!

Again got everything sorted out and started on the third song. Half way through, insane reverb/delay. I was basically playing triplets on bass and the effects totally jacked my timing. I was again left wondering what the **** I was doing up on stage.

We did one more song which came out all right and then we called it quits. It just sucked! Whats the worst thing thats ever happened to you on stage?

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

If you take a jar, and whisper what you want to hate into it, then close the jar, coat it in crunchy peanut butter, and shove it up your ass. I'm pretty sure you could hate everything after that.

Worse thing that happened to me was that in a two man song my guitarist and singer's microphone dropped forward and hit him in the face, it got sorted by a stage hand though.

The guy behind the soundboard prolly thought he could improve your guys by adding a bunch of efx to your playing.

I call this the Nevermind/American Idiot syndrome where the songs are way to overproduced but still sound good.

It may have sucked for you, But maybe the crowd loved it ?

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.

The bass drum! The damn mike fell off its stand during one of the songs! It was lying on the bottom of the drum.

Is that what happened to you or are you trying to predict the rest of my story?

The one song that came out right (Killing in the name of) was really good. Even during Take a look around, before all the cockups the crowd was loving it...

And then everyone got pissed that you kept finishing their stories for them.

Like that?
