as the subject says, last night was my first gig. Our school was having its own "Battle of the Bands" and we decided to sign up for it. For most of the band members (me included) it was our first gig. We all felt kinda weird when we played becuase we were the only band there with basic stuff needed for a gig. Like one band that we faced against their their bassist had a wariwck thumb 5 string with swr stack (compared to my crappy ibanez and my hartke combo), their lead guitarist had a full marshall stack and PRS Custom 22 (compared to my lead guitarists peavey amp and ibanez guitar), and their other guitarist had a Gibson Les Paul with marshall stack (compared our rythhm's crappy washburn and really small fender amp. .....and that was just one of the bands we faced against.... since we were the youngest band, we had to open up. during our 10 min. set, we did a cover of Metallica's Enter Sandman and then we all did solos. Our lead guitarist did a full blown out solo that lasted about 2 min. long. Our drummer then kicked into his solo which lasted about 2 min. Just as I had turned on my overdrive and kicked into my solo the guy running the show unplugged us because "we were going over our time limit" well other than my band and the band i mentioned above, there were about 5 or so other bands. we didnt win and we didnt know what place we finished in, but we did good. I got REALLY banged up in the mosh pit during another band's set, but it was awesome though. well, theres the story of my first ever gig.
