    Do you mean don't applaud when the songs are through, or don't try to clap along to that bit in Rebellion, or are you reffering to just random clapping during the songs?

    It's funny you make the comment about picking people up when they fall. I have never been anyplace where people are so polite for bumping into you. The small gesture of putting your hand on someones shoulder and making eye contact to say sorry goes a long way with me.
    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.

    I don't know what you're talking about, I go to concerts to hear me sing. Be forewarned.

    I dont mind people bumping into me when its busy, its cool if people are nice about it. Its my first coachella so I was just venting about crowds in general.

    Hah, I once had a complete mentalist woman put her arm infront of my face at a concert, so i moved her arm behind my head so she could still wave about, or whatever, and I could still see. She went ape shit started accusing me of being a woman beater. Dunno what she was on, but the point is a crowd of arse-holes can really put you off a show. I'm sure you will but be nice people, be nice.

    Agreed! also keep elbows and hair-whipping inside the pit.

    And jesus, if you see someone fall in the crowd, dont just smirk and think "sucks for them", physically HELP THEM UP. One of the scariest things ever is falling in a crowd/pit and no one seeing you or helping you up.

    Its just played out. We know you are hear to see the band. At coachella it might be a bit different because there are so many bands but still its pretty lame. Its basically stating the obvious. You aren't cool if you forked up $20 for a shirt with the bands name and the band isn't gonna be like "oh thanks for wearing our shirt." Its just weird and lame.

    Yeah, no one better step on my feet. I know it's a festival with 60K people and I know sometimes I accidentally step on other peoples' feet when I'm close to a stage but if someone steps on MY feet, I'm going to go Stuntman Mike on their ass. You are all warned.

    Three things off the top of my head.

    Do not be the guy wearing the bands shirt. It doesn't make you a bigger fan, it doesn't make you cool, it doesn't mean you are in on some secret we aren't. It usually just means you're a johnny come lately douchebag who heard their single on the radio and ordered the shirt online. Or worse, bought it at Hot Topic. It is cool to wear a shirt from a side project or previous band though, i.e Uncle Tupelo at Wilco, Ugly Cassanova at Modest Mouse.

    Don't push your way to the front. If you got there late, fucking deal with it. Do not be the douchebag trying to thread your way through thousands of people who got there first just because you think you somehow matter. You messed up, you deal. If there are obvious open spots though, you can walk to them, politely and chill there. Just don't be a dick.

    Finally, just respect the dudes around you. If you're smoking a joint and someone is eyeing it, offer them a hit! Why not! If you're really digging a song, and you just gotta dance, dance, but don't dance into people. Help folks up when they fall, don't drop crowd surfers, let people out, take care of people who are too hot.

    Oh, and if you're fat, don't dance. You're only embarassing yourself.

    How about if you're a dude in the crowd, check behind you to see who's back there. If it's another dude, try to minimize the bumping-your-ass-into-his-crotch moves. You may be gay, but that doesn't mean the guy behind you wants your ass all over him for the entirety of the set. If you're a lady however, most guys won't mind. =)

    Good one! Even if you are not gay though you might still be able to get him to go away and buy you a drink on his mistaken understanding that you are -therefore killing two birds with the one stone. Enjoy the gig.

    Although I realize that sometimes it can't be avoided, if you're tall (5'10" or taller) don't push through and stand right in front of someone who's like 5'0". They're having a hard enough time seeing over the 5'6" person in front of them.

    Here's my beef. Every concert i go to i seem to be standing close to the "random ass grabber guy" and i ALWAYS end up getting blamed for that immature shit. the last gal gave me the look like, "hey guy you wanna screw?" then she says, "if you grab my ass again i will kick u in the ballz asshole!"...
    so, to the immature ass grabbers: Please leave the ladies alone and they may flash you some nipply skin...

    I know, I hate that too. At a Minus the Bear concert in Austin, I got accused of boob grabbing. It was clearly the guy on her right (I was on her left) but the guy did reached behind her and grabbed the left one, so she thought it was me. I told her who it really was, but the guy had already left and there was a girl in his place, so she totally didn't believe me. F that noise.

    Awww, fluxy. Is this your first concert?

    I've never done Coachella before, so I'm not sure how I can be a snob, but there is a level of courtesy one expects at a show, and at a festival that is obviously multiplied 10fold.

    If you are a meathead who is simply going for the RHCPs and RATM, do NOT wear a backwards baseball hat & a t-shirt advertising that your frat had a lame theme party!......you will totally blow your cover!

    Uncivilized Frat boys (nothing against the well-behaved frat boys) are temporary guests, and this isn't a house party where you think you are the bee's knees!
