Is there is a stigma to using a backing track for a live performance?

    Just don't pull a Marc Rizzo and set up off to one side of the stage and have a crappy paper banner held up with clothespins. Weirdest/worst show I've ever opened.

    In the end, however you do it, weather it's you and backing tracks, LED lights to accent your show, banners, corpse paint, candles or projection screens or other members, what people walk away from is the SOUND, are you comfortable enough to play your own material at your best by yourself infront of an audience?

    I just did a show last week, went on first and played for about 30 minutes. Everyone complimented my sound and composition more than me being by myself.
