So, I play bass. My brother plays guitar. Our friend plays drums. Put it all together and what do you have? A high school rock band. Our friend approached us about playing for a fundraiser for scholarships that his mom was heading up, so naturally we accepted. We put together a kick butt set, which consisted of Peaches (Presidents of the United States of America), White Unicorn (Wolfmother), Steady As She Goes (Raconteurs) and Love You Madly (Cake), all of which we played very well on. So, we go the gig, and it's in a small, hot building, FILLED with older people. We were the first act, followed by things such as opera singing, a flutist and various other "classical" acts. So, after we played, it was incredibly awkward. Sure, we got thanked for playing and "praise" for how good we were, but we got many complaints, most of which were about how loud we were (we weren't that loud). Oddly enough, in the same place with the same band I played the best gig I probably ever have. Any one else have stories of gigs that weren't what you thought they'd be?
