Hmm... I think the majority of people in The Pit haven't played a proper gig in their life. No offense towards them. Neither have I and I don't really want to at the moment.

I don't really like playing shows. The bands I've played with are the kind of people that play and then leave immediately. I usually make an effort to stay and watch the other bands unless I'm sick as all hell, which has only happened once.

Doesn't help that the venues suck too

hanging out with the audience afterwards

This.

Talking to people there, asking for some feedback, answering their questions, having a laugh with your friends and bandmates... Feels good, man.

I hear you! aint' nothing looking worse than a band leaving once they're done playing. Of course if they really have to leave then it's ok but usually it's not like that. You can usually tell the bandmembers are pricks even before they do this haha, cause pricks are pricks even during the soundcheck.


Yeah I forgot, sometimes if the crowd is good in here (which is a rare thing) people might come to me later and ask to take pictures and whatnot! Now that I appreciate A LOT!

The only gigs I have done are Battle of the Bands really but I loved every second. We generally knew the other bands anyway so it we all just had a laugh, made silly backstage videos etc. I have only played one gig since then and it was quite a small one in a pub. I was filling in for a bands guitar player who was away that weekend. I do miss it.

When the truck is loaded and your free to go to the party afterwards. Note that this is from the engineers perspective since I haven't played any 'real' gigs yet. It's kinda awesome when the shows over and the lights go on as well though.

For me that's the arrival and soundcheck I guess. If the people at the venue are great, it's fun to just do the soundcheck and whatnot.

Same for me, I love all the set up and that jazz.

getting food and beer.

oh, i guess playing is cool too.

EDIT: anyone who said arrival/set up is insane. the only thing worse than loading in and setting up is tearing down and loading out.

Whenever I've played the time seemed to pass mega quickly.

I remember playing Spirit of the Radio for my school and I was so absorbed into it that it felt like it was 2 minutes long.

I'd say the adrenaline rush and the slow comedown.

Drinking afterwards. If it's a good show, everyone is in a good mood, if it went terribly, everyone just drowns their sorrows.
WHOMP

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

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

this thread is discriminatory to people that don't play shows. i'm staging a lawful protest.

The part where I don't play.

To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

But that'd actually be #2 for me. Actually playing is the best, food afterwards is #2, the drive to the venue/buildup of anticipation is #3.

this is everyone answer whether they will admit it or not. we would always get like the same group of 10ish people to go out and get food after shows. it was the most fun part.

I've only played in front of people at parties. I love it when all my years of practice, is appreciated by at least one person. I also love when someone that is listening closes their eyes when I'm playing and really get into it, because all my stuff is original (and often freestyle). I still remember the first person who said I was amazing.

I wasn't born with any musicalal talent at all, and didn't start playing until I was in my twenties. I had to work hard for everything i've learned and still do. So, simple appreciation is my favorite part, and makes it all worth it.
