    Needles giving out was bad. You would hear shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and everyone would look up at you as you saw the tone arm skidding across the vinyl.
    A crazy friend of mine was so drunk he pissed in the corner of the DJ booth.
    Fireworks went off indoors and charred the carpet on my speaker.

    i can't compete with the tone arm being ripped off, or indoor fireworks and pissing, but at my first real gig at a crappy hookah bar i was trying to get the feel of my friends mixer which we were using. it was a long 4 channel mixer which was a little odd coming from my experience with 2 channel mixers. i was so focused on remembering what channels i was plugged into and where his knobs, cue, and headphone controls were that i was happy i got the first 2 songs mixed together with no real issues...

    then i took the needle off the record i had just mixed in...silence. lol oops! i just laughed and put it back on and kept on truckin'. not very epic but it gave everyone a good laugh. thankfully most of the people there were friends, so they didn't really care much.

    just the usual trainwreck, no big fails. But playing in a band, one time played at the city's christmas parade, the circuit tripped and lost all power in middle of playing.
