I saw Pantera live once, Dime changed into a body bag right there on stage.

drink a beer....but only one. otherwise it could affect your performance if you drank too many.

Jack my swag
Just recall all the awesome things that happened on your previous gigs, or how well you did, etc. That would calm me down.

And before he died, Taran-Ish had scrawled upon the altar of chrysolite with coarse shaky strokes the sign of DOOM.
I mosh/skank/dance/whatever to the previous band. It keeps you in touch with the crowd, too. People like seeing someone in a band and thinking "hey, he was that guy I was just slamming into 10 minutes ago!"
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite
I just played my first gig ever about 5 hours ago

I didn't do anything to relax, I was too psyched for it. We did well aswell, got an encore

Although I guess I agree with the mosh pittin' guy, I was hanging in the crowd fu*king about 'til just before we were on.
alright, thanks for the suggestions everyone, I appreciate them.

I would think that relaxing would make it worse. If anything you'd want to get ready to rock people, not sit around and wait for it to start? but that's just me

I agree. I also like Marijuana and heroin. Also, if I'm feeling really tired, I'll take some ecstacy, or maybe even some meth.
^ooh good thinking, meth ftw.
