    And what did you do? Swearing over the mike, getting in a fight, playing to loud, playing a style that didn't go over in the place you played at?

    It means when clubs/venues will not let you perform. Usually some reason instigates it, such as bad behavior on a gig.

    Yeah, I was blackballed once. I was walking my dog one night, when Warwicknut suddenly jumped out at me. Little did he know how much I'd actually enjoy it. :D

    But it's so cold outside, you've drunk too much to drive, and you've got no chance of getting a cab at this time of night.

    Looks like you'll have to stay the night.

    ;)
     

  11. I feel sorry for you, dude!:D

    I knew someone who got blueballed... he was in pain for 8 hours... it was quite hilarious, actually
     
  14. I got "black balled" from a promoter in Chicago once back in 1984 or 5. He told me "You'll never work in this town again - I own this town"

    Guess I shouldn't have punched him.

    Turns out, as luck would have it - he didn't own the town (his loan didn't get approved, I guess), and played many a gig in Chi town since.

    Not officially, but after our last gig, I'm thinking we might be (our singer walked out with a neon beer sign and a jukebox speaker, after being shorted $100). I have expected it in the past though. Some of the things that we probably should have been blackballed for: Guitarist drunk onstage, singer drunk onstage, guitarist and singer both drunk onstage, guitarist high onstage, singer high onstage, guitarist and singer high onstage, guitarist and singer drunk and high onstage, guitarist and singer stopping a show to get high onstage, not bringing in a decent crowd, drinking way more than our fair share of free beer, driving customers out of the bar by playing bad songs poorly and finally, by playing too loudly.

    Come to think of it, maybe we have been blackballed -- that would definately explain the lack of turnout at our shows and our extreme difficulty in even booking a show to begin with! Hmmmm...

    Hategear, from all the post I've read of yours over the board, it sounds like it's a real pain in the ass to be in the band your in. :)
