So we played in the finals, last Friday. And we were quite confident, because we had a blast the week before. But everything went wrong. A sound engineer who was too late, (he walked in, when we were almost finished!) cables that went loose, mics that were not working, etc.
For me, it was the worst gig in a very long time. I can't even remember the last time things went that bad. But on the upside: we won a trophy for the third place and 25 euros which we can spend in a music store. Ah well... next time better.
