8 people watched our set.
That is hilarious because i have seen it happen in which a thrash metal band was playing and get a good response lots of people up watching them and rocking out and the next band came on and said "Are you ready for a bit of indie now??" Floor Emptys!!

So infront of a big crowd of family, friends, paying punters etc i had to stop the set and go to the toilet!
So i will never ever drink water before a gig again !!

At least i learnt a lesson haha
I remember reading in Rhythym (spelling) magazine Gene hoglan asked about his worst gig experience and he told of a time when he had a stomach bug and went through the set trying not to vomit or poo. along come some big fill and he poos himself mid way through it
