Bad: Saturday night my band played in a festival here with about 8 other bands, we were slotted to go on at 10:30 right after another band we normally gig with but ended up getting pushed back to 'after this band' by the promoter. Now we were to play 'after the next band' for the 5 bands following them as well, which got us quite pissed off and most of our fans left because we didn't end up going on until after 1am. Ugly: Once up on stage we were totally out of it, and played pretty poorly. The sound was terrible, my amp was on the far side of the stage and I had the guitarist's rig behind me and coming out of my monitor (the sound man had left) so I didn't hear a single note I played the entire set. All this, and we lost about $100 playing the show while the promoter took home roughly $9000. Good: It was the first time we've headlined a Saturday night show, even if it wasn't planned. The crowd loved it and I think every single person in the bar told me how great we were after we finished. We played two encores. The bar owner who had been completely anal all night came up to us and took down our contact info and told us she would call us to open up for touring bands as the future local support. It's amazing how one minute you just want to walk out of the door and go home and the next you're the happiest person in the world.
