You cut back to 64?
Costco was out of the 128 packs.
Half a dozen seasoned wings from the kitchen of whatever dive we're playing, and a pint of Yuengling.
Also, a single Tylenol and a 100 mg caffeine tablet. Met a wise guitar player that had been doing it for like 20 years, and let me tell you, I don't know why it works, but it does. I swear it's some voodoo stuff man.
I'm 65 years old ... I eat two ibuprofen tablets.
I eat a sensible bean....
I sing as well, so no dairy or anything acidic if possible because that messes up my throat *and* my stomach. I do something light like a very small sandwich or a protein bar a few hours before. I really don't like much in my stomach when I play. Then I hork down a bunch of food after. lol
My favorite is Pho - not too heavy, delicious, protein and carbs and hydration all in one yummy go.
I get a Whopper or a Double Whopper at Burger King on the way since my commute to the gig usually falls around lunch and our vendor meals for dinner typically are sparse. I bring four bottles of water in a lunch bag, as well as a sugar free Red Bull for the last set/drive home, as it can be difficult to get a glass of water at some gigs.
I get an upset stomach if I eat before play... nerves... of course, I've only playing on stage for 54 years... maybe I'll outgrow it.
Orange Kush and Molson Canadian...
If not on the road and a typical 8:30 or 9 pm start, I will eat dinner around 6 to allow time to get there, set up and sound check. I eat healthy - veggies, some sort of protein, little carbs. Can't go to the venue hungry. The food at most venues is typically fried, carb filled with maybe a wilted salad available and it often is not cheap. I will bring something to snack on immediately after the performance - nuts or veggies - to avoid the all-night McDonalds or Denny's stop. When on the road, I have to make some time to find a decent meal. I agree that eating something spicy beforehand is a bad idea. I make a point of going to the bathroom during every break whether or not I feel like it.
I make a habit of eating whatever the drummer eats.
I usually try to eat something before I perform. Nothing too heavy, though; maybe cheese and crackers, a protein bar, fruit if at all possible. I almost always have water or G2 on stage too.
Whatever the other band members can't eat because of stage fright. Oyster po-boy, gumbo, etc.
We generally set up a few hours before we play. In the hour or so before we start, I check the menu. 1/2 pound burgers are always nice. Pizza, fries, you name it. We expel a lot of energy on stage so it works out well. I'm 6' at 152lbs. However, no alcohol until first break when I have one beer.
I always try to eat before the gig and I don't eat any differently than I would normally, unless there's free food, then I might eat a little more.
Seriously.........whatever is available but not so much that I'm stuffed. Enough that I'm satisfied and not going to get indigestion.
