Bonfire Night gig pics...

Problems, how to get them, favorite songs to play, groupies, funky bar owners, etc. NO names of clubs, please.

I heard that lots of folks in the audience were asking, regarding my Johnson, "What IS that thing, anyway?!"

Well, when I got it out up there in the spotlight, I just couldn't stop flashing them.

It was a good night Stumblin, I enjoyed myself. You both sounded really good too- the instrumental boogies were nice.

Just watch out you don't get caught up in the latest reincarnation of the "Mod" scene that is being marketed to youth, lol.

The hat and jacket are dandy, and the jeans don't bother me -- but I'd ditch the shirt and find something that will mediate between the jacket and pants. Nothing fancy, mind you, but enough to be pulled together and still comfortable. The goal that I set for students when I teach how to make presentations is to have the audience paying attention to what you're saying, not to what you are wearing, good or bad. However you dress for a performance, it should support, not overshadow or distract from the performance.

Yesterday, one of my faculty colleagues looked at me and said, "You're looking pretty Republican today!" He knew that would get me -- so today I ditched the button-downed shirt and kahkis for black jeans, black denim shirt and Doc Martens just to make sure I didn't ruin my reputation. I wander fairly widely on the "fashion" path -- including a nice collection of Hawaiian shirts, but I try to not look like a train wreck, no matter what scene I'm reflecting at the moment. Even anti-fashion is a fashion and some folks do it better than others.

Funnily enough, the shirt was the one item which got a compliment.
Of course, I'm not really all that bothered by clothes and such, being used to performing in jeans & t-shirt. I just thought that the jacket & titfer combo might mark me out as more of a performer. It certainly made me feel that way, and more like it was a "special occasion", so I guess it helps :)
Anyhoo, thanks guys for all your comments.

Exactly -- it was a mental commitment to being the performer, that you define yourself as such, which reinforces your relationship with the audience. Non-verbal communication is one of my academic areas, and it's worth the effort to put thought into how you express yourself in different roles.

I can never resist dressing up for gigs; I usually end up wearing the ol' pinstripe waistcoat (the rest of the suit is too big for me :s) and my fedora. I like the whole formal thing, plus I don't have much choice if Asa will insist on wearing such dapper shirts all the time....


Looks like a great gig, can't believe I missed it!

Anymore gig pictures, anyone? It's kind of enlightening to hear guys talk about clothes and style. I enjoyed it. But would like to see more pictures.

Thanks Nizer. That was fun checking that out. There were some with boxes and colors inside but no pictures. What does that mean? How do you put up pictures? I have all kinds of stuff like places around here, bands, etc. The race car. The brewery.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Feb-12-06 AT 01:19 PM (EST)]Lorilu -

In order to post pictures like that the photo's have to be uploaded to an online server. I use http://photobucket.com/ its free and very easy to use. Once you've registered there is an upload button that allows you to browse through your hard drive to find the right photo. After uploading you can copy the URL that has the image tag (the one that starts with IMG) and paste that URL into the body of your post and voila...

The little red boxes mean that the photo is no longer available on the web-host server. The servers only allow so many pictures.
