Cosign on the bad sound.
From a performers side, the worst thing for a vocalist is having smoke machines all up in your face and choking your voice.
sets that dont flow, or artists that dont know their own words

artists that mime!!! i didn cum 2 hear ur cd, i wanna hear you!


good show = good sound, good artists, good vibe, good atmosphere, good love, good booze..... u get my point ;)
spread love in da music

BAD
1. When theres about 10 dudes on stage (why for?)
2. when the performer is too drunk or high (ie: Counting crow dude who fell over 3 times)
3. when dudes tell women to come on stage for some sexual seduction (except for the time janet jackson did it).
4. When artists play the same set/music (Eish Khenzero sometimes, and 340ml's)

GOOD examples
1. J-Live
2. Bahamadia
3. and i recently saw a Jay-Z show on MTv for american gangsta- it was really good!

WHY? I paid R50 to see YOU perform , if I wanted to see if I could sing I would've stayed home.
I think you should let the crowd do it voluntarily that way you can se whether or not you're dong it.

BAD
4. has got to be the time that L.E.S from Jozi was rapping a song called Tippy Toes (WTF?) at the ESPN basketball day...he then calls up 6 of his boys to  do this tippy toe dance... as soon as they went on the entire stage collapses!
SMH


5. when the CD scratches to the track you wanna perform (ie: Jozi's biggest song at the basketball day)...

Bad Shows

-When all the rappers try and rhyme at the same time.
-When the rappers forget their words... (da Brat @ the P Stuyvesant gig)..
-Ditto on the too drunk (wu tang .. countless times)
-when you're in the crowd and it starts raining...
-when the crowd control doesnt happen and a stampede occurs.. (UCT days Boom Shaka)
- too much crowd particepation (throw your hands in da air!!)

Good Shows

- audible
- Stage presence is felt
- Rappers do more that just mill about on stage (The Arsonists kill at this!!)
- mic juggles between crew (dope when dope right)
- the performer isnt sick... or starts show with... sorry Ive got the flu...

Worst show ever-

Launch of Groundworks CD in Rosebank... I and a friend were two of only 3 people that attended. Eventually Krookd grabs mic frm Snazz.. tells him he cant rhyme anymore.. Snazz's girl at the time happened to be the DJ too.. eish! Krook grbs the mic says 'f*** it Im gonna go home and get some pussy'... his embara**ed girlfriend blushes and ducks outta the room...

Best show...

Donnie. The gayest person Ive ever met in my life.. but conversely had the best vocals I ever heard on stage.

Show I would kill to be at: Amel Larrieux
lil niggaz they ain't around that powder
They ain't Super or Luigi or Mario, ain't found that power/
plus they couldn't spit fire if they found that flower.. You don't move white you lyin' dogg/
that's a neverending story without the white flying dog

Why does he have a song called tippy toes in the first place?
What the f*** is that about?

I've gotta sat Tumi and the volume put on a nice live set. Also MAx Normal TV from the videos my friends have of two weeks ago in Bloem, seems rather nice.

i've actually been asking myself the same Q for weeks- u should see the accompanying dance!

Co-sign Max Normal,
i saw them perform at oppikoppi back when it was at fountains.
on the mic with waddy was - who i thought at the time - was a young boy with a cute voice (it turned out to be his woman i think)

also think Sweat X, Kwani experience put on a good show and

Brother Ali (only cause when the sound didnt work,
he worked with what he had which was good lighting and a revved up crowd, got a dope Beatboxer on stage and blew the crowd away)!

Man, seen some cats with amazing live shows...Swollen Members, Kwe, Jean Grae, Pharoahe and his whole band were incredible. Common - best live show I have ever seen, full stop. Meth and Red, f***ing bananas. De La Soul, Blak Twang.

Thing is, cats like Tumi, Zubz etc are just as good. And yeah, the things we've mentioned like crowd interaction, mic placement, TIGHTNESS, stage presence...they all work to make a show brilliant.
