It's kinda sad that new bands don't get the opportunity to gig before they have a full night's worth of material. It often comes down to slapping together a bunch of old, tired easy songs just to get out or never getting out of the basement
. Actually if I remember correctly it was the weeknights that one could go out and split a bill for a "live rehearsal" and even make a hundred or so - no prob paying for that 50 cents a gallon gas
. OTOH equipment was about the same $$$ as today for decent stuff.
