    dont rush the stage. (people could get hurt)
    dont do more drugs than you can handle and fuck up someone elses day.
    dont purposely trash the place.( like we did at woodstock 99" but they had it coming.)

    not things like, dont dance too much, dont jump too high, sit and listen cause i want to. thats just fucking petty and stupid. when you put together and promote your own show, then make that your shows etiquette.

    Leave the moshing in the pit. Don't go out to the edges of the crowd and start banging into people.

    Last night I was at the Rodrigo y Gabriela show in LA with my WHOLE family and this "kid" comes in about 2 songs late into their set and proceeds to stand up when he is the only one in the venue doing so. I had my 2 year old daughter in my lap and my husband to my left. This kid is 2 rows ahead and directly infront of my brother, his girlfriend, and my mom and dad. Only about a song and half in to the "kids" arrival I see out of my periphery my brother and my dad lunging forward across the row in front of us toward the guy. It was the next song where Rodrigo said in his broken Spanish to "get up if you want to get up." I stood up with my baby girl in my arms in direct protest to what my family had done. I found out later the guy directly in front of my bro and dad had asked him to sit down and the "kid" had turned around and gave him two middle fingers - one on each hand 'cuz that's where I keep them too - and refused to even attempt to acknowledge the guy. Of course on the drive him it spiraled in to the discussion of the Mexican nouvea riche (or however you frickin' spell that.)

    So what are your impressions?

    Sadly, this could happen even if you had front row tickets. People today seem to throw courtesy out the door because they feel that the seat and space is theirs for the night. This makes them feel that they have the privilege to act however they want. This is becomming a common occurrence as more people spend their disposable income on concerts. It's kind of like all of the fans who started to go to Happy Gilmore golf games. Sorry you had a bad time. Bastards.
    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 had a great time. It was a good show - not as great as their set at Coachella, but good.

    The part that made me the most frustrated was the fact that the incident affected my family's impression of the artists. I don't know, if I was the one on stage I'd tell everybody to fuckin' get up if they wanted to also.

    Essentially R y G is a rock show. "For those about to rock I salute you."

    It's hard to compare to their Coachella set eh? They blew me away.

    Did they have the epic sing along of Wish You Were Here at the show you saw as well?

    I am seeing them again in September though, I can't wait!

    They played Wish You Were Here, but it wasn't the same. I was shocked at how few people knew the lyrics. It was like a low mumble across the crowd as people tried to pretend they knew what was going on. At Coachella, we all seemed keyed in to what was going on; there was an electricity that was clearly absent in LA.

    Default Concert Etiquette?

    Okay so I have been seriously contemplating this issue for some time...

    I personally get REALLY FUCKING FRUSTRATED when I am at a show and some jackass is singing all the words as loud as humanly possible. I just don't understand why you would pay money to hear yourself sing? I understand the singing along business...it's enjoyable, but why why why so loud? Am I missing something...

    What say you?

    Singing along.... mhm, I personally enjoying singing along loud enough so I can hear myself... I think its a natural thing, you try to speak loud enough to hear yourself talk...and at a concert, you're so fuckin into it, maybe peeps think if they sing loud, they will somehow get props for being a real fan and knowing the lyrics... who knows... I know for sure I was singing loud (for myself) at The Hives the other night...I hope I didnt ruin it for Rage Patton.

    I definitely don't mind people sing. I do it myself...its just the really loud ones. maybe I'm just unlucky and always end up near screechers.

    When I start actually singing the lyrics aloud during shows, I try to conscientiously switch to just mouthing it, but most of the time that doesn't end up happening... Especially if I know all the lyrics to the song.
