You at a small pub in a country town in Aussie pub Nimbin or busking on the Streets of Byron Bay (see****) anyhows, It's famous heckles, the crowd loves you or hates you, either way, they love music.

Play something we know....shut up, listen and you'll hear it, as the band launches in to a 11/8 prog rock tune.

Punter 1: jumps on the mic, hustles the bass player: you guys are fu**ed! i am going to run you out of town!
Punter two 2: I love you guys, can i buy you a drink of top shelf?
drummer:what the? bass player: Vodka please?

Random horn players who play inbetween songs, frustrating.
