I'm not a pro, but I can give you some great advice:

1) Don't f*ck it up
2) Don't f*ck it up
3) Don't f*ck it up
4) Don't f*ck it up

and number 5, you guessed it... don't f*ck it up

If you've got the gig you know you're stuff, so play it, you didn't need me or anyone else to tell you that!

Have a good gig though.

Don't drink the free beer,watch your instrument on breaks,take a nap earlier so you can wait until 3:30 am. to get paid.Oh yeah ,have fun!

I'm happy to announce that my gig went great the audience loved me so much they wanted me to come back on and play for about an extra 1 hour because the other performer was late.

Wow. All downhill from there.
Don't get too used to those kind of paycheques. There will be many that will be much smaller.
