Other than being too high to remember some lyrics, no real problems with the old band. Once my fellow band mate was trying to do backup vocals for one of our songs..our friend told him at the end that the mic wasn't plugged in.

Had drumsets fall apart on stage, had people plow face first into drums, into bandmates, nearly fought one asshole who bought an album after the set, nearly fought promoters, cleared rooms before, had the distinct experience of entertaining no one and providing an absolutely annoying and ultimately forgettable experience.

No hecklers tho, never actually had a beer thrown or anything. I've played some horrible sets and been crushed with humiliation tho, absolute failure. Opened for more well known bands and fucked up big time from which there is no excuse.

All this shit is necessary to earn your bones tho. One of the oddest experiences wasn't actually a show, but a jam where two members got into a fist fight mid jam........weird.

One of the worst was playing a radio station only to listen back to the tape and realize entire parts to songs are all jumbled and fucked to an extent that cannot be dismiss as an avante-garde intentionally sloppy and contrasting copout sort of way, just terrible.....just a plainly obvious inability to hold time and play music that someone may actually find pleasing to the ear.

Most shows are not up to par for the most part(actually lately my band has been kicking ass, but we play slow doom shit anyway), it's just the ones that are good more than make up for all those bad times.

My old band's first show ended when someone in the audience (a gangbanger) stabbed another member of the audience (a skinhead) by the pool tables near the end of our second song. It broke out into a giant gangfight that soon involved everyone in the club. A couple of the skinhead's buddies were holding that Mexican dude down and beating the crap out of him with pool cues. This was the first thing I saw as I looked up from my guitar and noticed no, that was not a mosh pit that had just started. I could tell because I looked at this chicks face that was near the stage and it wasn't a face of joy.
This was in East LA and the singer's brother was taping the whole thing. We had to tear down as fast as we could before the cops showed up, they would have confiscated the camera as evidence and who knows what else. I remember it raining outside the club and us trying to protect our gear with blankets used to stuff the bass drum, trying to get our car over there fast as fuck to get outta there, while the skinhead-Kerry King looking guy had his whitebeater off soaked with blood eating up the giant stabwound in his stomach, roaring out to his chick: "that MOTHERFUCKER stabbed ME!!!" That was the first day I saw the insides of a human being up close. People were fleeing the place like Godzilla was attacking or something, and it was just total chaos. We jetted out of there right when the police pulled in. The other gang jumped into an Astro van while yelling to some other dude in a Cadillac "call Capone! call Capone!" A police car started chasing after them after immediatley ramming the other fucker off of the sidewalk. It was some morbid/gangster shit.
The second guitarist drove home with his Avatar cab TIED TO THE ROOF of his Focus station wagon FACE UP WITH NO PROTECTION IN THE RAIN. I was just pissed but glad to be breathing after all that. Definetly grew some balls that day.
By the way that clubs name was the Doghouse, in La Puente, and last I heard they just made it into a normal bar or something.

We've had drunk people busting backflips into our equipment after getting shoved in the mosh pit.

We also played a show with some gay ass power metal bands at the Whiskey A GOGO.
That shit was terrible, no one knew what the hell Grind at that place. There was dead silence between songs, so we decided to end our set early because there were a bunch of fags at the show waiting for some gay band called Old School Beatdown to play. hahahahaha.

There was also this one part when some dude got up on stage, took my mic off the stand, and start doing vocals, but he sucked so bad. He was trying to do gutturals and ended up sounding like some Deathcore fag shit and then me and my drummer stopped right before the breakdown and I yelled "Put my shit back on the stage before I kick your ass" .... He didn't, it was embarassing to have him come in and ruin of my favorite songs that I loved to do vocals for, I didn't kick his ass because he was just a fan trying to have a good time but I don't like people snatching the mic away from me while Im doing vocals.

I've never had a bad experience playing though. And I don't know many others who have. The only other thing that comes to mind is my friend Matt who plays bass in a local punk band. Some drunk guy reached up on stage once and unplugged his bass... Matt kicked him right in the face, broke the guys nose and knocked three teeth out.

The moral of the story : Don't fuck with peoples instruments


LOL#1
LOL#2

how the fuck people can forget their instruments lolll And it was a really good idea to kick the guy in his face!

OHHH, I have a tendency dropping picks in almost every song. (I use dunlop jazz pics).
There's a video on our myspace where I dropped the pick in the middle of a song and I had to bend down to get it.

Haven't played many pure music gigs, but there have been a few episodes on stage. This happened when I was in a group doing a translated version of "Bang bang you're dead". For those that haven't seen it, it's sixty pages pure lines, and the five brain ghosts - of which I was playing one - of the main character have most of them, in the order ABCDE-ABCDE-and so on.
We recieved this script weeks too late, by when all the dates were fixed, and for all practical reasons had about one week to rehearse the damn thing. Not exactly a shitty experience, just a nerve-racking one.
There was one instant when the guy just after me (B) lost his line. One second of silence later, though, the girl C takes his line, and then guy D takes line C - dropping just one line would mean messing up the whole thing completely - and so we went for about two rounds, wondering with a heart rate of 220 what the fuck it was the one before me actually said?!.
Finally B managed to do a double take, snatching his line from me and saying his own in one flow. Shit, did I learn something about acting during that run.

I'm pretty much a photographer/tech for a few local bands, and I've been involved in some bad shit.

Mid set at a house show, cops show up. We had at least 60 cars line up on the side of the road (it was a slightly rural highway). Thing about these shows at the Brutal Pad, everyone was usually drinking and smoking reefer. So when the cops showed up, there was this mass exodus out of the garage where the stage was, and everyone booked it to the field.

Thankfully they didn't go up that far, or they would have arrested ALOT of damn people. Ruined the set though, and the rest of the show. Nerve racking being the sober guy who has to find out what the cops want...


I've got more, i'll post them when I remember more.

lol

shittiest thing for me was either getting signal interference on my wireless, or totally brain-farting a forgetting a song halfway through. that usually only happens when it's a fresh song though.

OH, another story, same band.

2 weeks ago, they had a gig at a bar. And for some reason, the bar is really iffy about letting bands who are under 21 play. So we all basically had to creep in, and act 21.

Well, on top of that, their lead guitarist just got out of the hospital, and really couldn't even stand without getting dizzy and feeling like death.

So the guy running the show decides that we all need to leave. So he makes them play earlier than their set time (before the show REALLY even started). Lead guitarist was so out of it that I had to set my camera down and tune the fucker's guitar.

So they play, and their new drummer's set keeps running away from him while he's playing, so not only is the lead guitarist off, so is the drummer.

After they got done playing, the guy running the show told us to, and I quote, "Pack up your shit, and get out of here. As far as anyone is concerned, you guys didn't even play. Here's 10 bucks for the show."

Haha, and to add insult to injury, the singer locked his keys in his car while packing shit up, so we had to spend another half an hour breaking into the car.

Worst show I've ever been a part of.
