Subject: RE: BS: Open mic acts that completely blow
In a 10 minute set, I'm done in 7 and often less than 5. My philosophy is, if I'm good then leave em hungry for more and if I'm sucking then get off the stage. I always do numbers that have hooks in them so that a 3-minute song is an enjoyable 3 minutes that goes by too quickly. I never understood people who do a 7-minute song that just seems to do nothing or go anywhere. And you know their next song is going to overrun the 10-minute limit.
