For me lately an odd pairing the pretenders and Radiohead

Sorry mods, if you could put this in a different category…
Howard Tate (if you don't know who that is, and you appreciate the best of 60's hard soul, check him out; start w/ "8 days on the road")
I was fortunate enough to know the sound guy at a venue my old cover band used to play quite often. They had a really nice foh and he would record us off of the board then burn it to a cd. The recordings came out great and I've used them successfully on two occasions as a kind of resume. I mostly listen to CDs of my old band. Always gets me pumped. I also have a studio version of an original band I was in prior to that. Or tool or APC.
Either old ska/rocksteady, or British post-punk stuff, or early '90s hip-hop. Oh and The Skints.
Someone's jaws are usually moving but I listen to the wind coming in the window
Whatever's in the CD player on the way to, and often LOTR/The Hobbit soundtracks on the way back.
Whatever the driver decides, they are doing me a favour driving me there.
mp3s freshly downloaded to my iPhone of songs I've never heard before that I'm expected to know how to play when I get there.
"Modern classical music" if that makes any sense at all. Normally the Hans Zimmer, Thomas Newman, and John Williams of the world. Ironically i play in a heavy rock band. Think early staind/taproot kinda vibe. I tend not to listen to rock or metal on the way to a show because i know I'm going to hear it for 4 or 5 hours at the club.
Somtimes Kyuss or High on Fire. Sometimes Cash or Zevon. Sometimes Nirvana or Mudhoney. Sometimes Neil Young or Grateful Dead. Depends, I guess.
Yup, I'm with you on this. It's either silence, talk radio or songs that I have to play that night!
Rachel Madow and/or a CD of the show I am about to play.
Talk radio. If music, anything not related to what I'm going to play, to remain fresh.
there's only 1 pre-gig song - The Final Countdown - Europe
Sirius/XM Hair Nation, or Ozzys Boneyard; brings me back to my roots, and gets the adrenalin pumping for the upcoming gig......
Usually warming up vocals/harmonies to the set list on the old iPod Classic. Then either Sirius/XM JamOn or Talk/News Radio.
