Making a movie, need help.....

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by B-NoteCowboy, Jul 10, 2003.

  1. ...I need some good short descriptions of funny things that have gone wrong in your various gigs.

    In the story, the fictious band, "Lake Flacid" is going to have a gig from Hell as one of the scenes.

    I have plenty of stuff to pull from personal experience of course, but I want a good comprehensive bullet-point list of everything that can go wrong in a gig in your experiences and opinions.

    How's about the pyrotechnics catching the club on fire. Seems I've heard that somewhere before...

    Not sure if this qualifies but I was playing a gig in a club one time and a really drunk girl who was hitting on the keyboard player jumped up on stage and started dancing with him. We told her to get down but she persisted. We warned the keyboard player that she had been drinking, ALOT. He didn't seem to care since she was groovin on him. It was at this point that she started to turn green. You can guess what happened next. She proceeded to projectile vomit all over him and his brand new Ensoniq synth. I was laughing so hard I can't remember if I finished the song or not.
  5. That is exactly what I am looking for! Thanks...

    this isnt nearly as good as the drunk girl story but...

    I was playing the song everyday and we had the singer go around and give everyone a hug, when he came over to me i accidently wacked him in the head with the head stock of my bass... he stumbled and proceeded to trip over several wires and unplug them. At least he didnt start bleeding or anything...:D

    One time the houses CD player starting playing during a song. It wasn't even the same type of music we were doing Audioslave and it was playing poka or something similiar.

    I once had the misfortune of getting a nosebleed during a bass solo.

    wasn't actually in a gig, but tripping over the guitar's lead wire whilst he was soloing.
