Oh yeah, that's kryptonite! Poor acoustics hurt too.
In my 2nd band when I was in my teens we played in a band competition in a community town hall. The guitarist started a song and the hall's sound was so washed out that I couldn't make out a single note - just this loud BRRRMMMMM. I was supposed to come in after 4 bars and was panicking because I coouldn't make out a single defined note!
So I guessed it. What else could I do? I'm pretty sure I guessed wrong, but after a while everyone must have made the necessary adjustments. We ended up winning third prize, I suspect, because our singer hurled himself against a wall :)
