support bands


Recommended Posts

Recently my band have done a few gigs, both as support, and as headliners (playing last...) Started me thinking - is there a difference? Should you approach these gigs differently? Are some bands better suited to being supports, or only really good as headliners?

Is the job of a support just to warm up a crowd for the main act? Or should you aim to blow them off the stage?

Does a support have to be similar in style, or is a varied bill better?

As an aside, my band are playing Downstairs on 30th August, and looking for a support. Who should we get?
