This is the thread to post the stupid/hilarious things people say to you while playing out.

So I was playing for a house party and a few friends that make tracks (using FL studio/Reason) were there. Nobody could really make sense of what I was doing, so nobody could really venture an opinion...until one guy had an idea that everyone could understand, and he said "Oh man, this would sound great through a kaoss pad!" d'oh! and of course everyone knew what a kaoss pad was so they all agreed wholeheartedly!

Nothing against the kaoss pad, but running $25,000 of analogs through a $400 processor doesn't make much sense. hihi hihi

What's your story?

I was doing a live set a couple of years ago, when this boingboingboing head comes up to me and says:
"He.....you got to speed this shit up......it's too slow, I can't dance to this.
Seriously man, I kinda like what I'm hearing, but it's too fucking slow"

my last gig, a guy came up to me at the end and said "I love you"

(I like to think my cacophony was some kind of a transcendent experience for him, rather than he was hoping to get into my pants)

and the 1st gig I did with Pinky, see pic, resulted in a girl with a Justin Bieber hair-do and big boots standing in front of me and glaring for 40 minutes. what could i do but tweak that joystick nipple some more?

Another gig with Pinky to a seated audience, about 120 people. I finished, there was some applause. when it died down avoice from the back shouts out -"What does the clitoris do?"

I've only played out like 2-3 times, years ago. Ran into a guy I had a class with once, drunk out of his skull and got "what the fuck kinda gear you got man, it's like you got a fucking modem with you".


Once had a bandmate who'd attach himself to one technical term and use it over and over again completely out of context. His favorite term: LFO.
As in, "that sound needs more LFO's man" and "what sort of LFO do we need to get a bass sound like that". I tried to explain the whole modulation thing, but the dude just wanted more lfo's.

Another comment on Pinky from a girl - "Is it sexual?" d'oh!

Once, while playing a show without the use of a keyboard and only using joysticks, ribbon and knobs, a guy came up at the end and said. "Wouldn't be cool if you could use a keyboard with that!?"

This happened about 15 years ago: I was playing in a dive bar with this Classic Rock band I was in. I remember playing a Moog solo on The Cars - "Just what I needed". After the gig, this drunk guy was like, "Dude, that Minimoog sounded great". I just smiled and thanked him.

But, it wasn't a Minimoog that I played the solo on--it was a Moog, The Rogue!

at my buddies studio, the control room has a giant wall of synths/keys.. Pianets, moogs, string synths, etc..

one of his clients runs in and says "HOLY SHIT, NO WAAAAAAY"

then runs over to the $10 pink piano toy in the corner and plunk plunk plunks on that for 20 minutes.

Not a musical gig for me but I was VJing a few years ago on 5 days off festival, had adapted my VJ software for 3D and was using some autostereoscopic screens (the kind you don't need glasses for to see 3D).

I saw a girl friend of mine and walked over to ask how she was doing. She replied "I'm not so sure, I think someone may have spiked my drink. I was just looking at the screens and the visuals seemed to leap out of them."

Later had a fun conversation with 2 many DJs' tour manager who asked me to turn off all the visuals. I politely declined saying I was being paid good money to do my trick. He replied he would take responsibility. I told him he was in no position to do that since he was not the one paying my bill. To which he said "OK, can you then just make everything pink instead?"

I found that so funny that I complied to that one..

I always chuckle when people try to play something polyphonically on any mono synth and then complain that my gear is "broken".
