    Our band got picked to sub a cancellation. It's one of those nights with 3 bands, and the middle one dropped. Thing is, all 3 bands that were lined up had a female front person, and play alt-rock/punk stuff, so there was definately a theme for the evening.

    We're an older all-male classic rock covers band. We're thinking of concentrating on our louder/faster tunes, just to kind of stay in the mood.

    Any suggestions about not losing the audience when there's a style mismatch?

    My band once got on a bill for a female oriented art show. Our in was that we had a female guitarist.
    In order to keep with the theme, our singer/guitarist and I both decided to wear a dress.
