did you come for the show or…?

i have recently been on a good stretch of going to shows… concerts… it has been pretty sweet… i must say though, since i have been going to so many as of late i have diverted a little of my attention to the crowd… as always, people amaze me…

i know i go to a show to see the band that i like play… i like to watch them… take in their vibe/energy… hear a different side of them outside of the studio… i love shows… i love what i take away from them…

people at shows seem like they do whatever they can to ruin it for everyone else… i understand that you wanna dance and rock out sometimes… i understand that it is exciting to be at a concert… but it is almost like a 9 year old takes over a portion of the crowds’ bodies… over-consumption of alcohol, loss of spatial awareness, negligence of other people being at show… the list goes on for me…

my newest pet peeve at shows are doods trying to pick up ladies… i wish you could see the last two attempts i witnessed (went to Foals at the Larimer Lounge)… one guy danced as awkwardly and out of control as possible while banging his head so close to the girl’s head that i thought he was going to knock her out… the other guy just stared at this same girl intermittently throughout the show while moving closer and closer hoping she would look at him… sooper funny and sad…

i mean, she came to the show to watch the band perform live… not to be harassed by every dood at the show… i felt bad for her… i could not even imagine how pissed i would get if i had strangers trying to get my attention at a concert i was hyped to see…

this is my latest discovery… not many people go to shows to see a band perform… they use it as a social event… i find that to be idiotic… go to a bar… go play intramural sports… don’t put your head in front of my view… i am fucking short and you are ruining the show for me…

peace and noLove
