Our setlist:

Breathe - Pink Floyd
Paranoid Android - Radiohead (which I did all the solos for)
Sketches of Eli - Stratus
Grace - Jeff Buckley
No Surprise - Fugazi (which I sang....and screamed...which scared the shit out of everyone)
Rough and Tumble - Joe Henry

It was a fantastic set. I totally messed up my solo on the last song. I cut it short and for half of it, I was in the wrong key.

<font color="CC33CC">Stratus had a whole cheering section for them lol.

The other kids were hurling themselves across the floor or jumping around or, my favorite, the lead person would raise his arms up to look all macho and beckon the crowd for praise. Hello, you're high school bands for one, and two, you pretty much suck!

******'s band instead opted to stare at the floor most of the time, be NORMAL acting for crying out loud, and musically destroyed everyone else. I feel like a proud big sister lol. I wish I got pictures http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/frown.gif, but I forgot my camera.

Don't worry about messing up; most of the time I can't tell if key changes are intentional or not since lots of bands mess around with that stuff.

You can scream like a mofo too. I said ":-O".

Sounds cool for a high school Battle of the Bands. Back when I was in high school we had a talent show, and some guy smashed his guitar on the stage at the end of their song. Come to find out he had actually bought a cheap electric guitar at a pawn shop to do it. It was pretty cool until later in the day when he got ISS for supposedly "damaging" the stage. I think there was a petition that was passed around to get him out of ISS, but I never heard what happened. Ahhh High School days, gotta love them.
