Yeah, it's free but the line up is generally so bad it's not worth being crushed in between scene fags under the blazing summer sun. I'd go if they had some like SYL or The Red Chord.

When I went I didnt give two shits about second stage. I went because im a big Priest fan. So if they have a band that is actually worth going to see? Why not, it is free.

I'm sorry.

Same. That sounds painful.

I was discussing concerts with some people and apparently you get more assholes at shows with larger bands. Someone described being rammed forward at an Opeth concert as loads of inconsiderate teenagers try to get up front but people are more polite at concerts for more underground acts, though depending on band/artist popularity you still may get stuck amidt masses of people. Apparently the best way to get to the front of crowds in concerts is to carry a cup of beer.

two cups. that way people think you were up there before but left to grab your pal a beer

but the best way to keep people off you at a show is to be THAT GUY who's way more into the show than everybody else. seriously, next show look for that guy near the front who is windmill headbanging and playing air guitar and check out the two feet of distance people give him. it works best if your sleeves are cut off and you're blatantly drunk

So you have to decide between a mediocre spot or looking like an idiotic asshole?

What's with the big "Don't wear the shirt of a band you're going to see" phobia?

i always thought it was a joke. just something to laugh at your friends for

half the people at shows wear shirts of the band playing anyways

**wait, here we go

The band T-shirt -- a staple of youth culture since the late '60s.

So many bands to see, so many different styles. But, there are so many rules to follow when wearing these shirts to prevent total embarrassment.

Why do we have these inane rules? Because we don't want to appear like a totally obsessed fan, or look like the one guy at Music Midtown wearing a Styx T-shirt and sporting a less-than-perfect red neck mullet.

People may call me a rock elitist because I try to follow the rules so closely. That may be true, I am too self-conscious at times.

The first rule: Never wear the T-shirt of a band which happens to be the same one you are going to see.

Again, picture that same mullet-man at Music Midtown and his Jerry Cantrell shirt yelling "Rock!" and giving a somewhat poor devil/rock 'n' roll hand gesture while holding a 40-ounce can of Milwaukee's Best.

As said in the film, "PCU," you don't want to be "that guy."

If I go to see Emperor an Emperor shirt will be in order though.

And I think it's awesome to get into the concert but I think there's a point where it's silly, not trying to be insulting.

When I saw The Fiery Furnaces/Deerhoof/Fog I actually stood there with my hand in my hoody pockets because people scare me shitless. @_@ I'd really like to be the kind of person who could hop up and down and flash the horns but I'm too introverted.

Funny thing. I don't actually ever try to be that guy.
