A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab
Practise and concentrate on the breathing, especially if you're singing. Take a little bit of time away from everyone else if you're nervous, there's always days when you're more nervous than others, and taking time to yourself really helps me get into the right state of mind.
Always, ALWAYS take a piss before your set.

That's some bony hipster sex, which may be the best kind.
My bands singer has these little sweets called VocalZone, they are like tablets filled with some throat soothing liquid. He got them on our 1st demo and he's used them ever since

Edit: Oh, sorry I misunderstood the TS. If it's nerves then really all you can do is just psyche yourself up before you go out and enjoy it.

Well, i know about during concert nerves. In the middle of playing you think "crap. im gonna screw up." i think about messing up and tell myself "dont do that." it's worked so far.
When all else fails, ask the pit.
not much of a singer myself or anything, but don't honey and tea (together or separate) supposedly help your voice or something?

actually that IS a good idea.....it will calm your nerves and slow your heart rate
just remember that live music means that it wont be perfect. So just be cool, play, and have fun. if you f*** up just keep going. it doesnt matter
