Re: slight OT: scary situation: 1st live performance at an open mic....

Congratulations on your first time playing out.  You were smart to keep it

"Never introduce more than one new thing at each gig."

The "thing" could be a piece of gear or it could be a new technique.

That way I only have to worry about one thing blowing up in a totally
unexpected way.   Everything else I've probably dealt with before or at 
I know the thing well enough to deal with it without thinking too much.
