25? How long is the show?!

Opening act?

No one will really care that much.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

I'm going to be honest, you're going to be used like a glorified sound check.

Do something crazy and memorable so that the audience won't care for the other bands.

Give them a grand show. Don't worry about anything else, just make sure everyone else is closing for you instead of you opening for them.

Play a simple song, once that goes well, next time will easier.

If you're afraid of them not remembering you, give them something to remember! Bite the head off a headless bat and yell at a deaf person!

You could literally do whatever the fuck you want, because you're the opening act and no one's gonna care.

Rock out with your cock out.


It's the only way.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

Set some one on fire! Its hard to forget a band that sets somebody on fire.


That might not go down well, but we would probably end the whole show so people would remember us, I'll think about it

Just have fun with it. The mix is going to be way off, people will just be filing in, but **** it. Take a shot of Tequila or smoke a bowl before you go on stage.

Don't do that. You might think you're playing ok, but you're going to make a total ass of yourself.
