  5. Maybe you don't want to play more than one thinf by the same band. Maybe you do, just a thought.

    Yeah, you might want to stay away from two + songs from one band unless you know that those songs will be wanted (i.e. if the crowd starts chanting the name of the song). If you run of of time, then maybe (lol) otherwise, step away from it IMO. How much time do you have to play, 30-45? If this is it, instead of playing another Sabbath, try like Smashing Pumpkins or umm Misfits or something.. I dunno. Good luck though and make sure to tell us how it goes!

    lost prophets was a good call, we did fake sound (the original album version) at a school thing. We pulled it off really well but pretty much everyone there were townies. They just stood there watching us. We also played Guerrilla Radio then :D.
