    This is too true. At the Hollywood Bowl we had the entire (or looked like) Kadashian clan sitting behind us...ugh what a nightmare. They wouldn't shut up!

    I was joking. A few posts back a dude was blessing us with his theory that all obnoxious audience members in LA are obviously people who work in the entertainment industry. Either that or their next of kin. LA has more than its share of inconsiderate assholes, but it takes a special kind of prick to make gross generalizations about an entire industry that employs millions of people in this city just because he saw some actor being rude at a show. The Hollywood Bowl has more than it's share of loudmouths, but I'd say that has a lot more to do with their BYOB policy than the day jobs of the attendees.

    Ha ..that's awesome.

    Everyone meets .. not a word said (of course polite head nodding) ... quietly forming an impenetrable sound circle free of douchery .. band finishes ..group quietly disperses

    Crying softly to one's self is also permitted.

    Not talking, but equally annoying:
    I saw Bon Iver in Chicago and little dude in front of me air-drummed the entire set, extremely accurately, but, like, super self-consciously. He was occasionally looking around to make sure everyone saw that he was nailing ever fill and choking every choked cymbal crash. It was the most bizarre way to be distracted through an entire set.
    1 Coachella before I got sober, 7 since. I support both versions. If you wanna do the sober version, roll with us:

    I have been thinking about this since the original post. This is a very important set for me. Never seen Radiohead and might never see them again given their aversion to touring. Please tell all the "entertainment douche bags" (insert sarcasm) to shut the eff up during Radiohead please! I am down for a silent board meet up for Radiohead!!

    I find dancing and bumping into people is the best way to avoid talkers, because you keep bumping into them, but you're sooooo into the music, they won't interrupt you. Try it, it fucking works people.

    Honestly I hope it won't even be an issue. The first time I saw them at Outside Lands you could have heard a pin drop. The only time anyone made any noise was when the stage's sound system cut out during All I Need. I always wondered what 40,000 people groaning in unison sounded like.

    I hope so too. The show last night was great. Sometimes I wonder if I am turning into a grumpy old man. It just seems to be common sense to shut your mouth and listen at a show. Only one guy behind me talking during one or two songs. Really looking forward to a different set list at Coachella.

    I don't know if I would consider Radiohead having an aversion to touring. They pretty much tour for
    every album that comes out. We'll at least they play the LA area on every tour.

    If people are going to talk next to me at a set it better be about the location of a buried pirate treasure or something.

    I'll take somebody singing and having a good time at the set over some bitch yapping about some text she just got from some guy any day of the week.

    The Radiohead show in Montreal had some bad talkers, and I was really close to the stage. I don't care what language you're speaking, if I can hear you during pyramid song you're going to get shushed.

    I agree with this ! I'd like to add no bringing instruments with you. Some girl a few years back at Coachella brought her tambourine to the Old Crow Medicine Show set. She was about 20 feet in front of me and its all I could hear. Everyone was looking around trying to figure out what the fuck that was. Finally spotted her and I then had to go spoil her day by telling her to put that down. She was very sad. But seriously, who brings their own instruments to shows ?

    Decided this year I'm going to get at whatever stage early to get up front and avoid the talkers as much as possible. I prefer to stand in front of the mixing console where the sound is best, but the talkers last year were too much to handle. Fucking twats.

    I went to a Violent Femmes concert and during the ENTIRE SHOW the whole crowed was a giant sing-a-long... Sounds great in theory but I couldn't hear The Violent Femmes at all. It was maddening!!! What made it worse was I was in the back and the sing-a-long had a time delay making its way to the back. Imagine a wave of people singing 'add it up' a'la row row row your boat...
