    I can't remember what my original post was in this thread, but I hope it was "People who yell requests and shit all through the set can burn in hell."

    Like, if there's a clearly signalled "Suggest a song" moment, sure, fine. Otherwise STFU. Particularly with big giant bands who a) can't hear you, because there are another 12,000 people in the room, and b) aren't really able to mix up their setlist on a whim, even if they wanted to.

    Also, yelling a bandmember's name. Fuck off with that shit. Ezra Koenig is not going to drop his guitar in the middle of the show, and whisk you off to his secret underground sexpalace, no matter how incessantly you shriek his name from 20 feet away in the crowd.

    Actually, funny enough, that's two Arcade Fire shows in a row that I've ended up covered in bits of other people's jumpers, so you might not be totally off.

And just because you're saying "excuse me, excuse me, sorry, excuse me" while shoulder checking doesn't make it ok. And if there isn't enough room for you to move forward, STOP. i'm not going to move back just so you can get in front of me. i was here first...sometimes hours before to ensure i get a good spot.
    I have a pretty funny story related to that - at the first Seattle APC show a HUGE guy (at least 6'5" and well over 200lbs) pushes me really hard to get in front of me. I don't condone this but I begin punching him in the back as hard as I can so of course he turns around. We exchange words and he's in my face and I ask WTF he's gonna do and tell him to hit me (lolz), he turns back around. I grab the hat off his head and launch it back into the crowd. He turns around and we exchange words again. As I am trying to figure out my next move he turns around and says "Would you like me to move" I said "I would LOVE for you to move", and he walked off. Super weird experience.

    If he hadn't been so aggressive in his approach I wouldn't have been so aggressive in mine. Once again I'm not condoning or excusing my behavior in any way just thought I'd share.

    that vomiting thing is interesting. a few years ago at Street Scene, my buddies and i were 3rd row for Wu-Tang, waiting for Kanye to go on...the Wu-Tang set ends, and while waiting i get a sudden urge to vomit. first thing i thought was missing 'Ye from that close, but went straight for the rail, told security i had to barf and they lifted me over, i ran out and had an exorcism. was super dehydrated and ended up watching the set from almost all the way back by myself....FUUUCK.

    hahaha...you know you probably could've just given him a smile and batted your eyes and requested he move behind you. most guys (and probably some chicks) would let you have it.

    but yeah, i would have liked to have seen you punching that dude and trying to get him to fight you. lol

    and that's just uber poor form. if you're that tall, unless you've been waiting there for hours and were first in line to get to the front, you should hang back. even i would have trouble seeing around someone that was 6' 5", and i'm not short by any means...

    pushing your way to the front row when you're that tall is rude and basically a middle finger to everyone else that is there.

    I read this whole thing thinking, "What the fuck? Who would ever just say "do you want me to move?" after all that?? Why not punch that guy out?" Then I saw that it was you and it made total sense.

    I don't think we can be friends anymore.

    I particularly enjoy standing or sitting away from the stage. There is a chance that an experience may be missed, but then the question becomes is it the experience or the performance. My money always goes to the latter.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    At the Pixies show last night, right when the band started to play, these 2 guys pushed up as if they were pushing through the crowd to get to the front. But it was too packed, I guess, so they stopped with me completely wedged in between the 2 of them. The one in front proceeded to jump up and down, knocking into people and repeatedly jumping on my foot while looking back at his friend, who's face was an inch from my face. They were both SCREAMING at eachother. It was terrible, and at some point I put my hand up to move the pogoing dude away from me while saying "PLEASE STOP YELLING IN MY FACE." Zack was behind me and was apparently fed up at the same moment I was because he pushed the pogoing guy. They both obviously had no sense of space and weren't conscious of how terrible they were being, because they were INCREDULOUS that anyone would ask them to knock it off. The dude that was an inch from my face yelled, "HE'S NOT YELLING AT YOU, HE'S YELLING INTO MY EAR." I said, "No shit, your ear is RIGHT NEXT TO MINE. You can talk at a regular volume at a show." Zack told them they were awful. Then they were quiet for the duration of one song, and then the front idiot started jumping like a jackass again, again on my foot, and then the second idiot -- WHO STILL DID NOT SEEM TO REALIZE THAT EVERYONE COULD HEAR HIM -- yelled to his friend that he should "scream directly into that chick's ear."

    I almost lost it, and I had to extricate myself to the bathroom, because I was about ready to grab the roll of quarters I had in my purse and just sock one of them in the face. Which, despite being annoyed by douchebags in crowds around me plenty of times before, is not an urge I've actually experienced before. I'm glad I left, too, because apparently while I went to the bathroom they were still yelling like assholes and started jumping on Zack's foot/into him. So we had to relocate when I came back.

    These guys weren't kids, either, they were easily in their 30s. One of them was severely balding. Jumping in general doesn't bother me at a show, but it's the way you do it. I mean, there's a way to not be an asshole. I just never fucking understand how people are so fucking idiotic that they think they need to yell at their friend during a show to be heard. How has everyone not realized that the best way to talk during a show is to direct your voice at a normal/quiet volume below the loudness of the music, directly into the ear of whoever you're communicating with? Trying to yell over the music in a general direction at someone is THE FUCKING WORST concert etiquette.
