It's becoming more common for bands not to bother walking backstage.
Has anyone ever been to a show where the band went backstage and they didn't come back for some reason?
I saw a band at SXSW (I forgot their name, but they reminded me of a really bad Goatwhore/Watain ripoff) that played like three songs, went offstage, and just didn't come back on - I think they were around the bar when the other bands were on, actually.
Eventually, their amps were turned off and everyone just sort of forgot about them. They had a thirty minute set and played for about seven, so it's not like those three songs were their complete set for the evening.
