    How many of you have had bras or other underware thrown at you while performing on stage?

    And what did you do with them all?

    And what's with bra-throwing anyway......is there a phone number or message jotted inside?

    (I ask because it's never happened to me).
     
  2. This title was awefully misleading :p. I played a big gig once a long time ago. I wish that sort of cool thing happened then. haha But then again we were all young and in high school.
     
  3. it's happened after gigs but never during.
     
  4. Ima start throwing bras AT the crowd

    Chuck3:- you mean some woman walked up to you after a gig and hurled the love-buckets at you?

    Were words exchanged beforehand? Or was it an act of female aggression?
     
  6. Perhaps it was meant as a helpful hint- do you need one? If so, PLEASE NO PICS

    Oh, and here I was going to mention that I prefer Bali to VS.

    I've never had a bra thrown at me, but I have had the contents of one very enthusiastically pointed my way after playing.
     
  9. See: All Time Low for a real collection of bras.

    Those women must have plenty of expendable cash. It wasn't until I was married that I realized how much that ladywear costs.

    *Also, it appears that the ladies of 'all time low' are of the 'padded bra' variety.

    We once played a show where a few pairs of women's underwear made their way to the stage.
    After the show we discovered that is was a bunch of our skateboarding buddies that had gone to Woolworth's and bought a pack of underwear, wore it skateboarding earlier in the day, then fired them at us during our set that night. I should have known. We did not have many female fans of our punk rock band that sang about farts, food, and pirates.
    If a bra ever made it to the stage, I would probably take it as a suggestion more then an invitation.

    Frank was a smart man, but trust me on this, anything over a mouthful is NOT wasted, as long as its real and not plastic.
     
  19. My wife played a joke on our band, went out and got a few pair of giant white undies, and paid some gals to fling them at the band... I'm not kidding, they were HUGE!

    If anybody I know could convince random strangers to throw underwear, it is our singer. She hasn't done it, so I don't know what would happen if she did.

    We were laughing about our practice room (in my basement) and how it was complete with the exception of bras nailed to the ceiling. The ceiling is too low already, so it's out as a decorating feature.
