I joined a band a couple months ago as a vocalist and tonight was our first show. The band has been here in Ft. Lauderdale for nearly 2 decades, but it was my first time playing with them live. We played a Pantera tribute night at a killer venue and man, it was the first time I've seen an audience going fucking APESHIT while I was onstage in a loooooong time.
I won't be able to sleep tonight. I couldn't hear myself for shit onstage, so I just had to go off muscle memory, but man....that audience reaction was absolutely insane. We're not even that brutal of a band, but security had to break up the pits several times.
The band that did the whole Pantera set was fucking BADASS. Guitarist TORE it the fuck up...NAILED Dime's solo's and feel. The other 2 bands also did KILLER sets....had 6-700 people in attendance.
Man....here's to 2013 and many good shows to all you guys on here playin' out!
Awesome news, man! I just had my first jam with the foundation of a new band - tons of fun
