Homer Simpson's Guide To Gigs

Posted at May 1st, 2015 | by Akshay Kapoor | in

Gigs can be really tough to get through if you’re a first timer. You don’t know what to do, how to behave, or even where to place those arms of yours(should you cross them, should you keep them at the back or in the front – it’s all very tough). So, here are some tips that will get you through the gig without any awkwardness. Learn from Homer Simpson himself.


Preparation for the gig


1. Find a band that you like and wear their t-shirt. You will blend in like Honey Singh’s songs blend in with ‘Music’.




2. Remember there is no age restriction for music. Hold on to your music-hungry self just like ministers hold on to their chairs till they have their feet in the grave.




3. Leave all your life’s troubles behind. No need to bring in your work, your mid-life crisis, or your curfew timings to the gig. Forget everything when you enter through that door.





At the gig!


1. Wise words from the man himself – Get yourself a drink and just relax. But please don’t drink and drive. Find a designated driver or call a cab!





2. And remember…






3. If you’re feeling awkward watching other people dance and move their head to the music, don’t do anything. Just stand there looking at the band. People will probably think you’re so into the music that you understand each and every note the band is playing 😉





4. If you know the song being played, go all out, shout the lyrics! The band will love you for singing along!





5. Don’t know how to play the guitar but still want to participate? ‘Air Guitaring’ is definitely the thing for you. 





6. Want to crowd surf? Do not worry! Tell the band and they will get you up on stage! Crowd surfing is the single most awesomest thing about a crazy gig!




The next day

1. You will probably wake up like this if you partied really hard.





2. But we all know what will be going on in your mind the same day at work.




3. So, look out for more gigs happening around you and hone your gig skills!
