Thread: too many frat "bros"

    Default too many frat "bros"

    it seemed to be getting worse every year but this year their drunken presence was far more noticeable. Coachella used to be a great festival because it was a chance to get away from "bro" d-bags. not anymore. oh well.

    I especially enjoyed rocking out to ATDI, of which I was thoroughly enjoying, to be asked by a drunken bro to take a picture of him and his equally enlarged bro-titty friends. Right in the middle of a damn song. I said no. The bros were a very big disappointment for me - not a fan.

    I don't know why you would let people existing bother you. Californians are always bitching about bros as if they are some abstract phenomenon. I did see some people who match such descriptions, but I didn't stare at them with disdain, and I had a tremendous weekend. You should try something similar

    There are lot of them, but my weekend wasn't ruined by them. Don't get so bent out of shape.

    True. It takes all sorts to make an event.

    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.

    Saturday night.....some clown approaches me

    " hey bro,(pounds fist) sick camp here man...you really know what your doing.I'm one of ColoRADbros biggest promoters man. Do you have any extra beer?"
    Goat- " nah man, we drank EVERYTHING Thursday, we fucking blew it big time you missed out"
    " serious bro, well do you have any illicit substances, like drugs ya know?"
    Goat- " we did ALL the drugs and drank EVERYTHING. Your a clown you missed it."


    My buddy was sitting in a chair with his hood on...he heard it all and continued to stay silent. He was having a bad time. His girlfriend is a dumb whore and ruined his Coachella. He was pissed. This guy is a monster. The most athletic non bro I know. Could put anyone I know into a casket...but always calm.

    As I turn around and leave laughing at myself being a prick, the bro chin checks my buddy in the chair.
    My buddy stood up, threw back his hood and the bro pretty much ran away. My buddy packed up his car the next morning and left. Said he couldn't deal with all the bros and his dumb bitch and wasn't even having a good time. I understood, helped him pack and contacted security to escort him out.

    He went week 2 and had the time of his life.

    i might be alone with this but I enjoyed the bros. I have so many funny stories from the shit I saw them doing/saying at the sahara tent. If I was ever tired/bored/super hot I could rest by the Sahara tent and be amused for hours.

    Bros can run up 60k in school fees but continually scavenge for free drinks and smokes.

    Hey! I like that green drink Really didn't have a problem with bros but my schedule didn't really have me colliding with them too much. I think Breakbot was the only time I saw some of them and they were too busy being funky

    We had some frat boy camps around us. Lots of bad rapping along to their ipod and lots of comments about how they should have less "classic rock" at Coachella. They were fairly harmless and at least they slept in late after 18 hours of drinking coors lite. Other than that, the only time I ran into Bro's in large quantities was the one time my wife and I walked down to the Sahara to see what was on fire down there. Lots of hyped up shirtless dudes running in circles and screaming with cans of silly string.

    I saw 3 Bros in between Bon Iver and Radiohead W1 the guy gets on his knees supporting himself on his bro, and then starts to pee right there on the floor.

    I took out a new glowstick, cracked it open and chucked it at him. Then I pulled out my flashlight and shone it on them and started screaming at them. They continued even though by then people were all staring, yelling, and throwing shit at him....
    With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.

    If you didn't have your shirt off or a tank on week two then you were probably too scared to take your shirt off because of your huge man titties. Bros don't bother me they're just having fun.

    I do hate making generalizations about "bros", particularly since I am in a fraternity myself. And, for the most part, I have no issues with "bros" (or their female counterparts...you know the type) at the show. But, camping next to a gaggle of these folks totally killed the experience for me (not the fest, just the camping).

    - Our camping bros brought their DJ system with a generator and ran that shit through the night Saturday night. At one point (3...4 am ish?) they turned things up literally just to piss off the rest of us trying to sleep. They acted like it was justified: "what the fuck, it's Coachella!", to which I call bullshit. It was their first year at the fest, and my 4th...I've never had that type of experience.

    - My only other real complaint is, for a group of people who are primarily into electronic DANCE music, these people do not know how or when to dance! In other words, when dancing is warranted, it's the same ridiculous, self-conscious motion. But, beyond that, while we were at Bon Iver there we two separate guys around us doing the same shit in slow motion. Seriously, do these clowns have any sense of individuality?

    Alright...I'm done being pissed about it. Happy Coachella, folks!

    heyyy....I'm from colorado and I'm not a frat bro or in a frat at all but I call my friends bro and wear tanks and go shirtless in the blazing sun. There's nothing wrong in being a bro but there is something wrong in being a douchebag, I would know cuz frat bros from colorado are dickholes. Those kind of people intentionally act aggressive and intentionally make everyone else pissed off just so they have an opportunity to start shit, and that's intolerable. But people who aren't bros do that too, its just easy to jump on a bandwagon and diss on the way a group of people purportedly act. There was a group of girls literally charging through to the front of Black Keys, saying "its an emergency, we have to get through!!!" which is pretty shitty and douchbaggy, and I never saw bros doing something like that the ways those girls did over the weekend. Also, green drink is the tits. It's healthy and good for you in the blazing sun and it replenishes.

    With the music during late hours thing, my neighbors this year weren't bros but they would pound house music til 5am then pass out, which gave my group like 2-3 hours of "sleep" before my other neighbors started waking up and pounding house music on their sub w/ generator at 8am. I felt like it was a noise war between our rap, rock, and musical diversity vs. house (specifically that shitty song by avicii, whats that song that i've heard bajillions of times at coachella this year called? you know the one), but not everyone who was blasting house was a bro and it kinda drove me insane when I was strung out trying to get in on much needed sleep.
    My point is, not every "bro" is a douchebag and the fact that people are harshing on others during and after a festival of acceptance and allowing others to be who they wanna be is shitty and pretty douchy too. Everyone is different and if you can't handle that fact when you're in the middle of 80,000 people, maybe you shouldn't go.

    Fact: Guedita is, by far, the biggest bro on this board.

    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)
    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)

    If you think Coachella is about "acceptance" or "allowing others to be who they wanna be", maybe you shouldn't go.



    Because, it's not.

    on the one hand, coachella is about sharing a love of music with other people who love music.

    on the other hand, it's always been a place where i feel like i can be who i want to be, and where i'm happy to allow others to be who they want to be; we're all here for the same thing, and we just express it differently.
