Me and my band are playing our first proper public gig (we had one at the school but it wasn't really proper, just part of a variety show) it's just an open mic night at a cafe in town, and we're playing 3 songs (Highway to Hell, Blitzkrieg Bop, Paranoid)

Do you think me and the other guitarist can go shirtless? Cause we always do at home when we practice cause we sweat and stuff so it sort of feels natural, but will they mind if it's just in a cafe? Dunno, what do you guys think?

Keep the shirts on. It's a cafe, people will probably lose appetite. Besides, those 3 songs will last about 10 minutes.

You would look pretty stupid playing shirtless in a cafe.

Why would you want to go shirtless? I mean I've seen bands do it like 50 minutes into a long set but you'd look like ******s.

Edit: This is probably a joke topic.

Only if the crowd starts taking their shirts off first.

Is it just me who was in hysterics at the idea of a band asking the guy who runs an open mic night, at a cafe, whether or not they could 'go shirtless'

Depends on the crowd , if it's 10 people sitting in a bar then it would look pretty lame


I'm not sure why, but this really made me laugh

Probably just the image of a few people having a nice relaxing cup of coffee, when two topless teenage dudes burst in and start headbanging to some crappy generically obvious songs.

It's the fact that it's two of them as well. Such a funny image

Why would you go shirtless? Keep your shirts on. This is a low key gig, don't go trying to make it all crazy.
#23
It would be painfully awkward and cringe worthy if you took your shirts of... please do it

Seriously? Don't do it.

idk. i go to a cafe downtown and it gets pretty packed. but its such a chill atomsphere. mainly younger people. when i do performances and what not i never wear shoes!! lol
shirts? it depends. it does sound silly but eh if its what you want to do - just ask the coordinator!

hope it goes well guys!!
EDIT: and what type of cafe is it exactly?? ex: theres a biker's coffee shop a block from my house. it'd prob be ok there. or is it a classier joint?

It's only acceptable for musicians to forego the wearing of shirts if they are ripped or morbidly obese.


You missed out "or if they are wearing tighty whities and no trousers"

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

Just remember: You're not playing to 500,000.

Don't think you are, know that you're not

Unless you're filming it, in which case: screw shirts, get the fireworks out and touch balls

Don't do that, man, it is a 10-15 minute set, if you and your buddy get sweaty while playing music for that short a time, you are doing something wrong.

EDIT: Doing this won't be totally inappropriate though, most people like their metal how they like their morning coffee-

WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

This is a fairly hideous thought, and I honestly think the song choices would be more a problem than looking ridiculous, teenagers playing clichéd rock/metal covers in a coffee shop would, to me, be a hilarious and disastrous thing to watch, for some reason I'm imagining Line 6 Spiders with too much gain, lots of tangled wires and plenty of polite applause...

And if they're female, or Biffy Clyro, and people actually love the band. Random sweaty people with there shirts of makes me want to leave a Cafe of all places.

You would look like a douche. So if you're a douche then go for it, otherwise, for the sake of everyone watching, don't.

Even so, if the link WAS to what it was 'supposed to be' linked to, it would still be bannable.
