This almost seems like it could be its own thread- crazy fans at shows-

I met a lady at a PJ show who had bought 5 different tickets for her one self for the same show so she could decide which seat was the best. She had a pre-set outfit and then she changed into her main show outfit while the openers were playing- different shoes and all. She had a really big bag for all of her stuff. In addition, she had printed out the lyrics to every PJ song and put them in a binder, which she pulled out along with a pen light and told me how she liked to read along while Ed was singing so that she would know when he'd sing something "wrong".


:shock:

A Godspeed show was probably the worst I've ever been to. They are not a loud band, and the horde of scenesters were taking selfies and talking over them the whole time and not paying attention.

Every so often one of the bartenders would yell out "1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4!" as if the band was about to launch into a epic guitar intro or something. It was funny the first time (it makes sense with their music), but after the third time I wanted to hurl my beer bottle at him.

I hate Austin.

The last Frogs concert was in Austin and it was really funny, because the place was packed with hipsters who had never heard of them, and they all left in disgust during "Two Blacks Don't Make A White". The 50 people who stayed were treated to a very long show that they didn't realize at the time would be the group's last. There was also a douche nozzle hipster who stayed there just to heckle them throughout the entire show. So there you go...a fitting send-off to legendary band, courtesy of Austin TX.

Jumping back in here ... I’ve rarely (if ever) really done a bro pack at a concert - but used to bro pack bars regularly. We’d walk in like we owned the place. Those were the days.

My crew in Missoula was a friend from high school, one from college, one post-college, and two of our four wives. Not the bro pack I was talking about.

Now, tomorrow I will be at the Dawgs game in Pasadena with a solid dozen frat dicks. We will probably get pretty obnoxious. That my friend will be a bro pack.

One thing I have noticed quite a bit of is people having the setlist up on their phone during the show and then checking it before every song, like they are judging a ladies figure skating routine.

A leak or what's been played so far?


Leaks. Happend at 3 of my five


Some concerts it is.

Some helpful concert hints, by request.


1a. Put your arms down. If your default concert posture involves having your arms raised above your head, you're doing it wrong. Look around. If no one else has their arms up, put yours down. The people behind you don't want to look at your arms. Go f*ck yourself.

1b. Put your phone down. If you're filming every song or so, you're doing it wrong. No one, yourself included, is going to watch this video more than once. The people behind you don't want to experience the concert through your phone's screen. Go f*ck yourself.

1c. Put your tablet down. If you think holding a tablet over your head to film a song is ok, you probably have brain cancer. Go f*ck yourself

1d. Put your sign down. Play Sad! Play Fatal! You're sad and I want to fatally beat you. Anything other than song requests is worse. A story that's a paragraph or more long written in roughly 16 point font? Swell. Do you want to hold it up in the middle of songs too? Uggghhh. Go f*ck yourself.

1e. Put your armpits away. Indoor concert in February? Check. Tank top? Check. Great, you can raise your arms the whole time so everyone gets to see your armpits for hours. Go f*ck yourself.

1f. Put your drink down. $12 beer? Yeah, bro - let's get wasted! And spill that sucker everywhere. No better way to spill than to raise that beer overhead and wave it around like you just don't care. Go f*ck yourself.

2a. Blood alcohol poisoning. If you need to consume 6, 8, 10 beers at the venue in order to have a good time, maybe, just maybe, this band isn't for you. Getting out of your seat 5 times to buy beer and another 5 times to piss annoys your row mates every time. You probably have the middle seat in the row too. Karma. Go f*ck yourself.

2b. Beer spills. Not annoying enough just being drunk at a crowded event, spill your beer everywhere. Plus it will give you an excuse to goto to make another beer run. Go f*ck yourself.

3a. Can't read. Am I in the right section? What row? What seat? If you can't read and comprehend 3 seperate numbers. Go. Home. Now. You will likely goto the wrong section, wrong row and wrong seat. Always a fun argument with the people already sitting there. At least you help justify the ushers. Job retention. Make concerts great again. Go f*ck yourself.

3b. Can't tell time. It's always awesome when someone gets to the concert during the middle of the main set. It's dark in here. Almost always packaged with 3a. Go f*ck yourself.

4a. Seat jumpers. You want a better seat? I'm sure you're the only one who wants to be closer. You can inconvenience anyone you want. Go f*ck yourself.

5a. Marital bliss. Your significant other is paying more attention to their favorite band rather than you? It's agrument time! Remember to make a huge scene and leave after just a few songs. You win. Go f*ck yourself.

6a. Bro. YOU LOOKIN' AT ME!!?? LET'S FIGHT! Go f*ck yourself.

6b. Bro pack. Let's treat the venue like our parents basement / cousins bar. If you don't do what we say, you're in trouble, bro. Go f*ck yourself.

6c. Ho pack. We're a group of trashy women who can do whatever we want. Cut the beer line? Heeeeyyyyyyy! Go in the men's bathroom? Heeeeyyyyyyy! Selfie time! Heeeeyyyyyyy! Go f*ck yourself.

7a. Phone calls. Are you at an event that has volume levels so loud that it may cause ear damage? I'm sure you can still have a successful phone conversation. Go f*ck yourself.

7b. Phone songs. OMG! Your friend's favorite song is being played. You NEED to call that friend and hold your phone up so they can hear. Can you hear me now? No. Go f*ck yourself.

7c. Status updates. Remember when you posted that you were at the Chinese restauant across from Wal-Mart and you got 6 likes. I'm sure the concert updates will get like 10 likes. The more the merrier. These updates can't wait until after the concert. No way. Go f*ck yourself.

7d. New friends. Remember that guy that you didn't know until 10 minutes before the concert started? You need to have a 10 minute long conversation with him in the middle of the concert. Just talk as loud as you can. He'll hear you eventually. Go f*ck yourself.

About the author: CopperTom actually chases children off of his lawn and has so much in common with senior citizens. He enjoys concerts, but has endured all of the bullshit listed above. But above all, he wants you to enjoy the concert going experience too. Have fun pals!


Probably been to 250 concerts over the last 20 years or so - can't say anything on this list has bothered me more than 10 times.
