Here are a few of mine: Keep running through your material at full volume until you can do it perfectly at any reasonable speed twenty times. Failing the ability or time to run through it at full volume, do it quietly until you can perform it perfectly forty times. If you think I'm joking, keep in mind that this is usually only 4 minutes of material. That goes by quickly, but every minute counts. Run through your material at the venue, even just quietly, but not to the point where you psyche yourself out. I listen to my shit recorded on my iPod the day of and the preceding week like I'm getting my lines together for a show, because that's what it is: a show. That's another tip: this format is a lot easier if you do live shows on a semi-frequent basis, because you get used to screening out any distractions and just working the crowd. Lastly, if you smoke weed, do pills, or any other drug that seems to affect you mentally or in terms of recollection, stop for at least a while during your preparation phase and until the battle is over.
