Things/people that annoy me at acoustic nights

Message Reads:

It's sunday night and if feeling grouchy, so I thought I would ask: What or who pisses you off at acoustic/unsigned nights? I'll go first:

1) Soundcheck Divas.

So, 4 or 5 performers have rushed in after work to get soundchecked before the show. Inevitably its a rush to get it all done. And inevitably there will be one performer whose refuses to conclude his soundcheck until the sound engineer manages to make him sound exactly like he does in his bedroom, and so his soundcheck goes on, and on, and on.

2) 8 minute songs at open mic nights.

Usually open mic nights have a two song limit or a three song limit to ensure that everyone gets roughly the same amount of time on stage. This, however, doesn't work when someone turns up armed with two 8 minute songs. Sometimes songs need to be that long. If so, treat it as two songs.

3) The loud-mouthed banshee in the front row.

The people who sit in the front, and don't even bother to try to talk quietly, can be bloogy annoying. Usually they are newbies, who have come to their first open mic night to support a friend. As such they don't get the difference between yelling at an acoustic night and yelling at a rock concert. And more importantly the don't get our ethos.
