    The face of the man who went 6x10 instead of 8x10 because he thought it would be easier to move.

    The story I made up for this is...

    Bassist dude split his pants doing a stage move, is hiding behind his rig, and getting side-eyed by the keyboardist because his below-average anatomy is on display and the "When nothing goes right" sign is pointing right at it!

    The doors just opened and the local bike chapter reeled in, who have been drinking hard since the previous Tuesday.

    But why is there a third leg under that keyboard?

    That easily could have been me the other day at my band's practice. The new songs that I was told were going to be on the 4th of July set list - and that I spent weeks practicing - all of a sudden have been changed. Without discussing things as a band. Now I'm supposed to learn different new songs to replace the previous new songs. I'm tempted to just play the bass lines from the old new songs that I learned as the bass lines for the new new songs.

    I am starting to understand why some musicians smash their instruments....:bored:

  16. Third leg belongs to the second keyboardist, who got her gig night wrong, but refuses to leave without getting paid.

    The face of the drummer when he realizes the bass player's wife is in the front row and the keyboardist
    has her hand on her husband's leg during the break while they discuss the upcoming set.
    (Another reason to think twice about wearing shorts to a gig)

    The lady sitting at the edge of the keyboard seat has her right boob out. The bass player's girlfriend has her eyes locked on him just waiting for him to glance over there. But he just isn't going to do it by gawd.
