I'm excited but know I'm going to nervous as hell. I've played in front of huge crowds before with orchestras, but with my two-man band only in bars and coffee shops. It's also outside and at 2pm, so I can't really drink to calm nerves down. Any suggestions?

I wouldn't suggest drinking redbull before you play, my hands always get really shakey when i drink any energy drink.

Have a beer or something instead, should calm your nerves.

i've heard of a drug that snooker/pool players take before they play to stop there nerves, anyone know what it is?

A lot of people turn up to those things. Hell, some travel across continents.

If you play badly you might ruin their entire day.

Oh... Um...

I'm sure you'll be fine.

Dude, perspective. You're at the goddamn RED BULL AIR RACE. You have nothing to be nervous about compared to these guys:

Don't get me wrong I love smoking weed, but if I did that before a big show like this I'd probably get more nervous, anxious and paranoid because of how many people are staring at you, lol.

I don't know how many people are gonna be there. Most people in the city go to the races at some point over the weekend, it's just how many will be directly there when we play. I'd say a few thousand will be listening or at least in the approximate area.

Well in Metal Gear Solid you take Diazapam to steady your nerves when shooting the sniper rifle.

If they did that, i'm pretty sure they'd only be dreaming that they won the match whilst passed out on the floor.

It's in shitty ol' Windsor, Ontario along the Detroit River. So you can see it from both sides of the border.

Also, very good point SteveHouse, hahaha.

I've probably seen your location a thousand times and never realized you were that close to me. I'll bring extra rotten tomatoes.

Fuck that. Take all that nervous energy up on stage. Let it loose on an unsuspecting crowd.
Save some for tomato ducking.

If he does well, he may not even have to dodge tomatoes. Then we can try to throw them at the obnoxious Americans that come over the bridge....Oh wait.


And if for anyone interested on what the air races are, here is the website with a video for the race in Windsor this year.

How about you guys throw something disappointing instead? Like melted chocolate bars, or bagels that have gone moldy?

Wait, the Air Race on the Detroit River? Or is there more than one Air Race location?

Edit: Looked on the website. Didn't know there was more than one air race, to be honest. But kudos to you, I'll be there. What's your band?

It's taking place outside the Capitol Theatre on University Ave. My band is Sophist. It'll be an acoustic set, but our drummer who quit when we moved to London for summer is playing with us again for the first time since. Should be interesting. Also, if you can make it Sunday I suggest seeing Mike Hargreaves. I went to high school with him and he taught me a bit of bass and music theory. His band Michou is doing pretty well for themselves.

And if you Windsorites show up and promise not to throw any tomatoes at me, I might be able to get you or your band some shows with us in the future

Yeah haha, that's me and my baby. There's quite a few people, and if you know downtown Windsor at all University street has all the bars and lots of people we're out on the patios and you could hear us for a few blocks. We got lucky tho, the guy who played after us got completely drowned out his first song from the planes taking off. Then later on it rained and it was canceled, we ended up getting tornado warning's and shit.
