I got a first gig independent of playing with my school or with anything coming up

and so my friend and I got our stuff down musically(we are a duo). I mean what some good crazy antics be. cause I hear like throwing peanut butter at the audience or throwin up at em is kinda cool. or just like jump down and dance around in the audience during my friends long drum solo. is it like that well stage antics or any advice?

Do you really have to have a guide for stage antics?

yeah, i'd love to be the target of a crowd-oriented wayward peanut butter attempted stage antic shot.


Mmmmm.

Throw dead rats at them, there's this local band that did that at a gig I went to, they drew the biggest crowd of the night.

They also had pigs heads on stage, and inverted crucifixes. And the drummer sculled an entire bottle of jim beam just before he began playing.

haha ts, this can't be a real question...
anitcs does not help make a show good, make up for ****ty music, make up for poor stage presence and you will probably just look like a complete tool on stage...

if you are established and can get a big crowd... beach balls, lots of beach balls...

Unless your audience consists mainly of toast, this could be a bad idea.

My favorite one to do is just not pay attention to them and play my music. They love it, man.

I punched one of my class-mate in the face during our last song, back when I was in my high school band. The crowd loved it.
#22
Yeah, I think vomiting on the crowd will most likely make you popular. It will also probably get you laid, but don't forgot to throw up on her while you are porking her.
There may be times when it is impossible to prevent injustice, but there should never be a time when we fail to protest it.

Get naked an do a belly flop while taking a dump. Everyone will be talking about it. You'll be a YouTube hit
#25
Do some windmills like Pete Townshend. they're damn hard. Make up your own thing anyway, if you're independent of school then now's the time to concentrate more on the music than how you look, when you were at school you should've been doing all the party tricks. Get a long cable and walk around the audience as you play, it's been done loads before but that was in the 50s and 60s so depending on your audience it might seem completely new and cool
#26
Bassically, you just have to appear confident on stage. Loosen up a bit and make eye contact with audience members (Do not look at the floor, although you can interact with other band members or look at your instrument when playing more difficult stuff) Don't get up to any "antics" or you are gonna look like a massive tit

Who the Christ told you that?! GG Allin? If you're going to take advice from him, you might as well go the whole hog and roll around in your own sh*t, naked, while punching the crap out of the audience.

I copy Thomas Erak for my stage antics. Jump on your drummers bass drum (clear it with him first and be careful), put one leg up on the monitors on the front of the stage, jump off of your amp, move your guitar around when the drums hit.
