my band is playing our first show in 17 daysss any tips or anything?

#1
our singer is gone right now and wont be able to make it, so our backup singer is going to play rythym and sing lead, our drummer is in Peru (!), so we cant practice with him, and we have to borrow someone's bassist

and i'm nervous because i havent ever practiced with them (although they've been together for a while)
any advice or anythinggg?

Well, it's not really your band then?
I get very tense around apples...Well, I get very tense generally. I think I've fallen into the trap of blaming fruit.

You're going to fail miserably and get booed off stage.

Have fun


Not if the audience is a bunch of drunks in a bar.

id say dont epic fail but since this is your first show (and while, there are exceptions first shows oftentimes dont go very well) and you need to borrow a bassist and are down a lead singer, i seriously doubt there is a snowballs chance in hell of it going well.
if you prove me wrong, however i would love to hear about it.

Old, but pull it out and cum on the audience at the end. The old gravy finish.

Practice your ass off.

Also, depending on what kind of music you play, get into a power stance and headbang vehemently.

Edit: Actually, no matter what kind of music you play, the power stance is essential. Legs no less than shoulder-width apart, maybe more depending on the music you play.

More like an Axl Rose worship cult ... unless you're referring to GNR after Slash left.

well since you're using someone else's bassist practice until you feel as though you're all working together.

you could start by asking the musicians talk forum... where stuff like this belongs and your question has been asked before and you could just read about it.
