Tomorrow, Sunday October 12th. My band is playing their first show at a place called Clutch Cargos. Michigan people will know about this place, but for those who dont, its a real national venue for very big bands. Trivium, all that remains, chiodos, the flaming lips and even DETHKLOK themselves have played there...Thing is its basically a huge battle of the bands with 20 something bands, which brings me to my main point. To stand out in the crowd of cruddy bands we have decided to adopt a halloween theme to our show. Im personally wearing a bloody bucket head mask, while the other guitarist is wearing a hannibal lector mask and pouring blood everywhere... This is honestly a massive gimmick but we think it'll make the show fun and make people remember us, and also take off the edge of nervousness we're all going through being our first show.


Question is. Ug, do you think this is a good idea?

Fuzz...It's wonderful and horrible and beautiful and repulsive and so many things all at once.

If you decide to do this, you shouldn't wear what you just said, it will look immature. No one will take you seriously. If you want a halloween theme to stand out, wear cliche costumes. Sheet for a ghost, someone get a skeleton costume, etc.
#13
have fun with it man, chances are you probably won't win (maybe idk how good you are but there are a lot of really experianced people out there especially if this is a well known spot) so just have fun and then if you do win then great. good luck, update us on how it went and be sure to add pictures

edit: and read the post above and do that. i read it again and u do need more cliché costumes. ghost, skeleton, vampire, frankenstein

No, they'll think you're a bunch of Slipknot wannabes...


Exactly what I was thinking. Don't do it.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.



If you resist change, you will be here forever.

I would do silly or fun masks, not gory/already used masks.

develop your own theme and design your own masks...
that'd be fun thing...

Bad Plan. The best way to get noticed is to interact to the crowd. Talk to them. Hopefully it goes well for you.

Just have fun and play your asses off. Don't overthink it.

Hahha, alot of negative repsonses...I can understand that. But we're not trying to win or be serious at all, we just going up there like that to have fun with it. Like after people hear the same type of bands for 3 hours, we'll come on and just act like fools. Its all about the fun of it, not acting like slipknot(who we hate), or trying to be hardcore.

And its 13 dollars at the door to the guy who asked about tickets. Tomorrow show starts at 11am.

Be sure to go to the Buffalo Wild Wings nearby when you're done playing your show.
Or just eat a bunch of that while on stage.

No man, congrats...I (and I think others meant the same) just meant that you should have fun with it. And it seems like you are, so good luck. Just be fun, but also play your best and enjoy it.

Seriously, I hope you win man

Thanks alot terrencemaddox...Well everybody knows how we are as people, and we're some of the nicest people you'll meet. They know we'll be acting gory and stupid just to poke fun at those bands and to give people an interesting show. Our music is not gory or violent at all, it'll be ironic mostly..

my band is playing a show called skalloween on the 28th and everyone who comes, audience and bands, have to dress up for it. It rocks and makes it a hell of alot more fun than normal shows. But I have never seen any band pour blood somewhere in a live show. Where will you get the blood? I support human sacrifices of virgin men.
