I wouldn't recommend getting ****faced because you will end up sounding horrible. On second thought it would serve your purposes, it's just that your audience wouldn't enjoy it.
#7
don't drink, maybe a beer but that's it. just suck it up and have fun, that's the best way to do it.
#8
just think

'will this show go down in the realms of musical history'

NO

so why bother worrying?!?
#9
booze, but not very much booze, either beer or a small amount of harder stuff. only if you actually get less nervous with alcohol anyways should you do that
dont take any guff from these bastards man

Gotta agree with this.
I've never really had a show big enough that I was nervous for it, but weed is good for when you are, and it doesn't really affect your playing as much as booze.

Weed? I was talking about salvia. Nothing better to help you focus.

Well for me, if i'm really pumped up then all my nervousness goes away, I get pumped up by going to my car before a show and turning on one of my fav songs and just jamin out singing with it. That normally gets me all loosened up so I can actually move around on the stage and not stand there.

No, just booze it up. Don't take too much before the show, though, then you might mess it up. That was my plan last night and eventually the show was so early that I didn't have time to booze it up, but I still wasn't nervous at all.

Nothing better than playing in front of a crowd of unicorns and flying apples

Seriously though, a bong hoot or two.

I was nervous my first 2 or 3 shows, it goes away pretty fast.

I would not advise getting smashed, but remember this:
The general public is retarded. Playing even really simple **** will blow most people's minds.
