This list has been making its way around Facebook (that’s where I saw it anyway). It’s a collection of the annoying things that local (and touring) bands do. Annoying from the standpoint of the venue manager who likely wrote the list (and deals with bands on a regular basis). Parts of the list come off as stuff we all think (but would never say. No. 4, 8). For bands, there are probably some good lessons in here, too (no. 11, 26 for example). Some of it is just too jaded to take seriously (no. 20-23).
Still, it’s a good read and fodder for some good discussion.
So, what do you think of the list? Is there anything you’d add? Does one of these stand out as being the worst? Without naming names, how many of these have you seen at local clubs? Moreover, if you’re in a band, should there be a list of annoying things venues do? What would be on that list?
