There's a thread here in the backstage that's bound to get nuked by O-drunk thirty, but it made me think about something. Mostly redheads with large... Sorry, wrong forum.

Dumb shit people do on stage. Yeah, that's what it was.
There are just some things that shouldn't be done on stage. Period. End of story. Full stop. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.00.

  • wearing shorts on stage $20.00
  • wearing cargo shorts on stage $40.00
  • wearing a baseball cap on stage $25.00
  • wearing a baseball cap backwards on stage $45.00
  • wearing white socks on stage $20.00
  • wearing sandals on stage $30.00
  • white sneakers on stage, especially New Balance $20.00
  • wearing dirty sneakers on stage, any brand $20.00
  • flip flops $40.00
  • wearing sunglasses on stage $20.00
  • wearing a stocking cap/wool beanie onstage $25.00
  • wearing a sports jersey on stage. Canadians wearing hockey sweaters during hockey season excepted $45.00

  • wearing a polo or golf shirt on stage $30.00
  • wearing khaki pants on stage $30.00
  • wearing a polo or golf shirt with khaki pants on stage $50.00
  • ain't even gonna talk about socks with sandals $75.00
  • keeping a clip-on tuner on the headstock when not actually tuning $20.00
  • not having a pedal tuner in the first place $20.00
  • tuning so the rest of the band can hear you $25.00
  • 'warming up' on stage $30.00
  • tuning so the fucking audience can hear you $35.00
  • noodling on stage $25.00
  • guitar strap too low $20.00
  • guitar strap too high $30.00
  • shitty (as in unreliable) gear $35.00
  • not showing up with enough time to do a soundcheck $40.00
  • too much gear $25.00
  • cringy stage banter ('lemme hear you out there' to a crowd of 15) $25.00
  • telling jokes on stage $35.00
  • making a pun on stage $50.00 and loss of mic privileges for 3 gigs
  • not knowing the tunes/using charts on a music stand on stage $250.00

all fees to be collected and held in trust for the next time the van breaks down. Or the PA takes a shit again.
