            We had to turn a 50-60 min regular set into 2x 1hour sets once.... we basically did a few extra covers (that we'd dropped previously) a couple of 'extended mixes' added a couple of longer instrumentals ... we still failed and they only paid us half what we were supposed to get.

              the longer the audience waits, the drunker they get, the anticipation builds and it usually works in favour of the band.

              I saw Neuraxis open for Martyr a couple years ago and they were well over an hour late, they hit a deer on their way to Vancouver (Canadian touring eh) and ****************ed up their van. still an amazing show, nobody cared that it was delayed.

                this is the sort of thing i was talking about.





                oh, ****************, that sucks. ours isnt QUITE as bad, 1 hour set turning into two 40 minute sets. going to try to throw another cover in, for a total of two, all others original. shouldnt be an issue, just wanted to see how yall have handled it.

                      Think about baseball. Or squeeze the tip real hard.

                        Always do a dry run at practice and time it to make sure it will fit the bill.

                          Talk to the audience, start a dialogue, tell stories, instrumental/looped intro/outro, samples... I've used all these for a solo set.

                              thought about this too. we are pretty decent at jamming in interesting ways, in my opinion. could get wanky though.
