    I haven't been to very many events and Europe so I can't really compare though.

While I think that's true sometimes, almost every event I've been to overseas has had a worse crowd than I've seen at US shows. Starting to feel like in order to for venues to be popular enough to attract (and pay for) great bookings, it has to be supported by masses of idiots who've just come to get completely fucked and to pull.

    Well, as I said, maybe the next trip I'll focus on Berlin and venues with door policies. (For what it's worth, I didn't go there specifically to go to Fabric - had a 11PM-10AM layover at LHR, so it seemed like a reasonable thing to do with the free time, and I'm not sorry I went since Shed and Blawan were quite good!). I saw a ton of great music while away but am so very glad to be back in SF where I can see good music with people who can behave like adults despite the substances they've swallowed.

    Edit: also I was really dismissive of people who poo-pooed on Sonar, saying it was only good 10 years ago. From the comments, I inferred that they were talking about the bookings, not... the crowd. What a shit show. I saw some really good acts, and thought the venue itself was pretty good (sound-wise, set-up) but holy crap the crowds were worse than US massives. It was only "lacking" kids in kandy and costumes.

    Best layover ever? I think so.

    Hah. Yea, as far as layovers go, it was pretty great. I came really close to bailing on the thing due to torrential rains, all of the friends I'd planned to meet up with bailing, and more tube closures/transit problems than I expected, BUT it sure as hell beat sitting in the airport for hours. I felt like a derelict though, coming back to the airport and boarding a flight on no sleep, no shower, (thankfully I'd thought ahead to stash a backpack with some clean clothes in left luggage at the airport), eyes still crazy. It was a very long trip home...

    FWIW, I really have no problem with people getting fucked up or really drunk at shows, it's entirely a matter of how they're able to conduct themselves in that state. If they're there /just/ to get fucked up and to ensure everyone around them understands exactly how fucked up they are... that's really really annoying.

    Oh trust me I have no problem with people getting fucked up. I only get annoyed when they can't handle their shit/only came for the sole purpose of getting fucked up and don't care about the artist at all. When I'm trying to dance/listen to a set and people fall all over me and start drunkenly yelling a bunch of nonsense I want to cut their fucking feet off tbh.

    /end rant.

    Glad you had a good trip! Wish I could have gone to Sonar. Barcelona seems like a great city.

    Hah. Yea, to be honest, overly drunk people annoy me more than high people. In that the super drunk people usually are less aware of their surroundings and their impact on other people, whereas -usually- I feel like people who are high as fuck make a little bit of effort to not be so obvious. There is more social and authoritative pressure to not be so obviously on drugs versus not being so obviously drunk.

    I think most of us has the occasional situation where WE are the bad crowd, but when it's the majority of a crowd, or the same people doing it every time, that's very disheartening.

    When you get too drunk, you're more disruptive. When you get too high, you mostly just want to hide or be generally left the fuck alone to sort out your own head (except for uppers).

    Actually, at Fabric, I was at one of my sloppiest points ever in a venue (I actually puked for the first time ever in a venue - fortunately in the restroom, quietly, with some dignity left intact). And I still hated at least half the crowd for being a shit show. :P

    definitely hope that the emptyset set veers more towards the recent stuff... please let the sound system be sufficient, i have no interest in a ben frost-esque fiasco.

    Sandwell District Showcase was excellent. I was really into Silent Servant's jean vest.

    Well, opening with the entirety of "Saucerful Of Secrets" is one way to get a response.

    Mmm Sundays @ Berghain are always fun but I was super bummed when Prosumer ended his residency a few weeks ago
    there's quite a few things that Sunday too, a few open-airs and then Items & Things release party looks nice,
