I am in a small band and we have a gig tomorrow which i do not want to go like our last one, where we just stood still looking at eachother knowig it was going badly.
I am not a regualar performer so I'm not really used to letting myself go on stage. Are there any tips you guys have to performing without letting your playing get messy?

P.s. Sorry if this is the wrong forum, i could think which one to put it in.

do your best to relax. dont forget you're there because this shit is fun. any time the band isn't having fun the people wont either. music provokes emotion right, sad music when you're sad or going ape shit to something driving 120mph on the highway to born to be wild. your mood is gonna do the same to the audience. and no matter what never skip a practice and keep booking gigs or you'll never get comfortable.

Do your thing, do whatever you want on stage, just do something.

Try not looking at the audience, face back stage. It may be odd, but you'll loosen up. Turn around when you're ready to funk it up.

Is fingering an emo chick that likes yoy and that has fallen in love with you is it wrong to you to finger her during lunch outside in front of everyone at the high school? would you not care or lol even wish it was you?

You don't know who Jacob Bannon is though. You seem like you're trying to start an argument for no reason. Nash and Mike weren't even laughing at you. At least not initially.

Never heard of him.

Exactly what argument am I trying to start?

Jacob Bannon is the vocalist for the hardcore band Converge who are considered legendary and are pretty much idolized in the hardcore forum.

That's why they thought it was weird your username is J Bannon.

Argument wasn't really the best for me way to put it. More like being a bit confrontational. Like your post about Jacob Bannon being a douche when Nash showed you why they found your username amusing.

Now I realize that you're probably just joking around and I'm being stupid.

Still never heard of him, or the band. At least my tactic worked for figure how the "joke". Sometime the easiest way to get an answer is to not want it.

But that defeats the purpose of the quote system, and makes it difficult to see who exactly you're talking to.

You sound like my friends who immigrated from Vietnam 2 years ago. Learn to use grammar correctly.

Your way is stupid and counter-intuitive. Why would you post your reply to something, before what it is you're replying to?
I'm an asshole.

Whoa, hold up.

Let's address this sentence.
