I guess this is the right place...I'm going of to college in the fall, and since my school has a pretty decent underground music scene, and since I'm your stereotypical pissed off teenager, I'm going to try and start a band...creative aren't I? I'm hoping for a real Hardcore vibe (i.e. Throwdown, Darkest Hour, etc.) However, I lack the high-speed chops needed to play bass, and I write a lot of lyrics, so I want to become the "vocalist". I consider myself to be a pretty decent screamer/grunter/*insert hardcore stereotype here*, and I practice a lot in my car, at home, etc. My question is this: What gear do I need for a group setting? I know I need a mike and a PA system...thanks in advance to the 10 people who will tell me so. But what exactly do I need? We'd be talking anywhjere from coffeehouse gigs to decent sized school venues (200 people plus) so what kind of gear would be good? Any help you guys can offer is, as always, greatly appreciated.
