    Yeah they do check. I got my Myspace Music page shut down for a day for putting ELO-Xanadu in my player . Seriously i got shut down until i filled out a questionnaire about Copyrighted Music.
    The questions (about 5 of them) were like:

    Do you think its right that you can take credit for someone elses music - Y / N
    Do you understand that people who write songs dont want their songs stolen -Y /N

    Blah Blah.

    Myspace is WANK for DJs . Its just full of sh*t bands . What about the DJs that dont bother making their own music (lets face it most DJs make sh*t music) and just want to be DJs.

    I do like Myspace though , but maybe thats because im drunk.

    Call yourself PeteNik! I'm in a similar position but my friend has just opened a bar up. Th good thing is that I've got a gig there on a Saturday night for 3 hours next weekend, the bad thing is that I know alot of the people that go there and the expectation will be high and the fact that the place is new and usually only has indie/folk bands is going to make it a hard one. Also, about 80% of their patrons end up outside so when they come in for drinks I'm going to have to work hard to make them stay.

    I kind of understand that you have to be confident but not cocky, show that you know your stuff while always keeping an open mind.

    Maybe because when it's live its all well and good to have imperfections - makes it real.
    But when i listen back to a recorded set i nitpick.
    feeling this. my reasons for not playing out rank roughly as follows:

    1. puss
    2. high standards
    distant 3. logistics

    This thread was really helpful got heaps of good advice out of this thanks guys!

    a little off topic but... i got my first gig tomorrow night at a massive house party hehe WOOOOT cant wait! Il end up playing i reckon for around 2 hours or so, so this could be quite a good experience on learning to read a crowd etc does any one have any tips on this or house partys? like how to kinda softly say no to playing some music which doesnt fit what your mixing or how to get people to the dance floor when your about to start your set? haha sorry if this has been said before in another thread

    Thanks in advance
