This past weekend, we had two shows: one on Saturday and one on Sunday. The one on Saturday was a general metal show: power metal, progressive metal, thrash metal, death metal, alternative metal, and "heavy metal." The show on Sunday was more extreme metal: thrash metal, death metal, black metal, etc.
In 2 weeks, however, we will be playing at a show with 8 bands (including us)... where we are the only band that is remotely heavy. The other 7 bands are soft rock, alternative rock, and pop rock. And, not only that, but we're the band right before the headliner. The singer for the headlining band is a fan of ours, so he invited us to the show and we accepted, but when I heard the other bands, I just laughed. Kinda oddman-out kinda stuff.
I'm wondering how the audience is gonna react, since I'm sure most of them are coming for soft rock.
Anyone else done something like this before? Like... the only brutal death metal band at a smooth jazz concert?
This EXACT thing happen to my buddies band.
They're a death metal band (kind of like decapitated with more groove) and they were headlining at a show with some lame ass emo/alt rock bullshit. The whole audience left right after when it was time for them to play. Well not immediately but after 5 minutes
Myself and the bands other friends were the only ones left.
