Richard W Posted September 25, 2013 Share Posted September 25, 2013 My band has a gig next weekend for which we've been preparing. Last night I dreamt that the band was setting up for the gig, but I was very discombobulated: my notebook of charts was in disarray, the order of songs was wrong, when we started playing I found myself separated from the rest of the band way off in a dark corner so that I could barely see anything. In the dream I pick up my mic and amp and carry it towards the front of the stage, but we are playing the wrong song. I know the song we are playing, but I seem to be off by half a step. Still, there is a large and appreciative crowd that cheers at the end of the song. I think to myself "well, that wasn't too bad," but then I notice that I hear another bass playing--someone is totally shredding the part. The crowd is cheering, but they're not cheering me. I turn around but can't see the other bassist. Then I wake up. This is not the first time I've dreamt of being at the gig from hell (to say nothing of the times I've dreamt that I was playing on stage with the Beatles or the Stones, though, oddly, in those dreams I am killing it). I'm confident the actual gig will go well. I'm just curious if others have similar dreams where the wheels fall off during a performance.
