Ok, this is my first post in these forums, and this page caught my eye. Let me tell you a story about the gig that never was. A lot of people in my area are into the "punk" scene. In my band we play music that has a slightly-80'ish feel to it, so you can understand that we have a slightly limited fanbase. I say slightly because we do have quite a lot of fans. That being said, here's my story We were supposed to play a benefit concert for my High School on December 5th. But it was cancelled, because they wanted to have a Different show to help support the Juinor-Sienor prom for that year, because nobody was selling fundraisers. I went had had a chat with the teacher in charge of the show (which is on the 19th) and he said that he would gladly put us on the list. But some girl took it upon herself to edit the band list and cut us, and a few other bands out so she could add in bands that SHE wanted to hear. this girl was in student government. We were never informed we were cut until A friend of mine told me. I'm not really an angry person...but this set me off. after a verbal argument that lasted about 45 minutes we were put back in and this girl was promptly enraged. Then the rumors started flying that we tried to get the show cancelled. I replied to all this by saying that "Why would I want a show thatI'm playing at to be cancelled?" but it all falls on deaf ears. Want to know the funny part? they didn't rent a PA for this and this same girl wants to use our PA system for this show. I hate being in High School.
