    i dont really get nervous anymore, but on the odd bigger gig at a new club i might get a little, but over the years ive noticed i do the same things for those gigs:

    1 take a shit before leaving the house (not joking, nerves and needing to go dont mix!)
    2 have one beer on arrival but drag it out and have another when i start

    same here... a good number 2 before i leave the house one drink before i start and one cigarrete before i go up (if the place is non smoking if its smokig allowed then i go crazy) and one drink during the set...

    you are DJing in a bar... the secret is in the booze just relax and play your set, they will be drinking

    Yeah calgarc, but I had to open so I had to set the mood and draw people in for the rest of the night hehehe... The saturday before that it was pretty much empty but this time it was packed! job well done i suppose and for a first gig... well i'm happy.

    Damn playing out is fun hehe I wanna do it again soon! Also yeah I had more then 1 beer, I dunno how you guys even feel that. I probably had about 4 before playing as I was with friends and yeah... you know how that go's lol..
