I'm going to have a gig in front of 900 people.


Well, actually it's our school's christmas concert and we're forced to play there. Thing is, we don't know what to play and the audience consists of little kids and parents expecting to see 'Silent Night'.

So it's gotta be heavy.

Our band line-up (skill from 0 - worst to 10 - very good)

- drummer = 8

- lead guitarist (me) = 6

- rhythm guitarist = 3

- bassist = 2

We've got no singer, so that's the first problem.

Have you got any songs which are good to play without a singer and our raging skill?


We already thought about Smoke on the Water, Stairway, Final Countdown and I cum blood so far.


Oh and yes, we're most likely going to fuck it up.

the final countdown without a keyboardist?

Why not play the heaviest rendition on Silent Night known to man, add a tasteful breakdown (not that 000-000----0----0----*pinch harmonic*----000 crap), and then turn the middle into an awesome jam, returning to the Silent Night theme as the outro.


maybe even rename it violent night?

Youth gone wild - Skid row

This sounds awesome, even without vocals.

Prep the crowd to chant 'we are the youth gone wild' when appropriate.

How's about some Trans-Siberian Orchestra? Just kinda adapt it to use what you've got and forget about the strings and winds.

Just play something like Iron Man or Too Much Time on My Hands. Easy songs.

Though the violent night thing sounds good, too...

First of all - How did you get this gig without a vocalist?

Second - Maybe play something by Lacuna Coil if you can't find vox. Or make some xmas songs more rock/metalified.

Lastly - I Like COOKIEZ.

August Burns Red (metalcore band) does a good metal cover of Carol of the Bells. You might have heard it if you watched The Spirit. Anyhow, it's really good, easy to play, and doesn't have vocals, so I highly recommend it.
#26
get a singer and practise loads - or don't do it. There's no point half assing a gig out of lazyness because people will think you suck and not come to future proper gigs.

Dude play a christmas song, none of those people will think you're cool if you play something heavy. Try this one, it's the most rocking christmas song there is:

Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) - The Darkness
