The problem with living in university halls of residence.. is that you can hear someone whispering in the next room.. Bedroom gigs are a complete no no, I've seen peoples reaction to being woken up by a fire alarm at 5am, not sure how they'd react to a girl with pink hair throwing herself arounmd her room waking them up.

Nevermind.. Home for the weekend.. time to rock out.
Just cleared my stage ;)

How are you all anyway? Quiet round these parts..

This community sounds great...totally me. :)

Location: Cornhell...aka Indiana

Musical Bands Of Choice (just a wee selection!): Rammstein, Ramones, No Doubt, David Bowie, Dead Can Dance, Cooler Kids, Backstreet Boys...I guess that's enough.

Current bedroom instrument of choice: My hand makes a great microphone.

Real or air: Technically, we have some real mics in the house, but I never think to grab them...I could steal my boyfriend's guitars too if I wanted, haha.

Current bedroom gig band of choice: He's not really a band, but David Bowie is my favorite right now.

Current bedroom gig track of choice: "Let's Get Retarded" by the Black Eyed Peas is my favorite single song.

Favorite move: I like dancing around while climbing all over my stuff...kind of like a dancing leopard or something, heh.

Anything else: This is one of my kittens being funny.Collapse )

Current bedroom instrument of choice: Bass

Current bedroom gig band of choice: The Chariot
Current bedroom gig track of choice: Before there was atlanta.... - THE CHARIOT or FASSW - Vesper
Favorite move: I dunno what to call it really you hold the string and the neck and throw it quickly i'd call it the "schitzo throw"
Anything else: I play real with my bass it's not plugged in or has cables plugged in though. i use the edge of my bed as my amp to rest my leg on and the best is usual where i try to fall if i get carried away.

Ah true Bedroom gigger has marks or wall scars in there room you should never be careful and let yourself go

My dream is to be able to do a full bass swing round my neck (in my room)

And when i bedroom gig, i usually play one bands whole album and just randomize the tracks.

The first and hopefully not the only post.
The basics.. this community has been an idea in my head for ages after many a conversation with my friends over the greatness of the bedroom gig. Everyone has done it.. a song comes on that you love and you just can't stop yourself.. you grab your guitar/drums/mic be it fake or real and just go crazy.
More advanced bedroom giggers can even have crowd/setlists/whatever.
Though most importantly they are just fun.. and slightly embarassing if you're caught...
What's been your best excuse?
My most unbelievable was definetly the "uhh.. I'm tidying my room"

So yes.. this is a place to share your stories, moves, favorite songs of the moment to bedroom gig too whatever.
Very few rules.. those that do exist lurk in the user info if you want to fill in the survey.. GREAT! if you don't.. that's fine.. but please join in! The more the merrier...

If you like this community please advertise it anyway you like.. Here's one of those annoying advert things you can use if you wish:


The source for it is http://www.audiostar.org/image/bedroomadvert.jpg feel free to just hotlink it.

Better fill in the survey myself.. set a good example!
