My band is playing a show tonight, which should be pretty fun. However, last time we played somewhere, about three weeks ago, my voice crapped out halfway though the set. I was popping couch drops all day, and had one right before the set, and in the middle, but didn't really help. I'm thinking about bringing more cough drops, and lots of water, because I didn't have a lot of water at the last show.
Also, last show I had a shot of vodka before the set for nerves and fun, tonight I may have two or so before. Could the alcohol affect the dryness of my mouth or anything?

So for the show tonight, in 6 hours, what should I do to prepare?
Practice singing all day?
Not sing, but keep my voice active, with talking and such?
Shut up all together?

Drink some tea with honey. No carbonated beverages.

Well that explains it. You shouldn't be eating huge things like that.

Srsly, though, Hot tea with honey. If you're gonna drink water, make it room temperature or warmer, cold isn't good for your throat. Also, warm up. Do a simple scale every so often, but change it up so as to cover your whole range.
