My band just had our first gig last night. It was pretty bad. We did a show with 4 other bands, which were all punk. We are a rock band. Anyways, we played our songs and all of our timing was off. We were all nervous as hell and the crowd didn't dig us too much. At least we didnt get booed off the stage. We would have done better if we had some crowd support. You see, we were playing in a different town. But now, we know what we have to do. We need to have a better stage show and have lots of fun. All we did on stage was stand there and played our stuff. Also, the crowd came to see a punk show. We are a rock band, so that might have made a difference. I am pretty hopeful and confident that we will do better on our next show. Do you guys have any stories about bad first shows? I will certainly remember this one for awhile!
