ITT: concert pet peeves
>that one girl who freaks out and throws a tantrum when she gets groped while crowd surfing
[spoiler]I'm almost always usually the one that did it[/spoiler]
Let's get this straight. The people who crowd surf are willing to let their bodies be held and touched by hands of complete strangers. Yet they complain that they are groped. Fuck being respectful, they are stupid for doing it.
crowd surfing is rude and completely selfish since it only benefits the person doing it and literally forcing people against their own freewill to help support the person if they should move cross on person's path. nowhere else is this type of behavior tolerated. I didn't pay $25 + $10 "convenience fee" + $5 for parking + ~$20 in overpriced alcohol to lift YOUR pudgy mess of a body because you have to uphold your reputation for being the wild one in your cubicle hen house you dumb fucking cunt
They are stupid. fact. People should not willingly grop parts of their body to make them feel uncomfortable or to feel interesting.Just like they would do on the street. You can occasionally touch someone without meaning it, it happens, it's bad when you go for it and don't care if the person is a human or a dog.You may expect to be biten, or YOU are stupid. It's all a matter of personnal perspective. It's like saying " hey, people are going outside without a helmet, they shouldn't complain when heavy stuff fall on their head duuuhh". It's ridiculous.
¨People talking over quiet music
tall people getting in the front rows
People doing whatever they want that's not related to the gig
special mention to that tall couple that spent a whole MONO concert in the front row talking and kissing. FUCK YOU GUYS.
Well, they are literally trusting their bodies with complete strangers in the most vulnerable position for sexual assault you can think of. You don't know who is touching you, or what danger they carry. But you are actively putting yourself to these situations.
You could watch the concert like a normal human being and not start shit.
Went to a Kendrick concert at an outside venue while it was pouring rain.
>People who have a cup of beer and try to get in the pit
>MY FRIEND IS UP THERE CAN I GET THROUGH?
>People who can't take the pit and get sick/scared and try to push their way out
>Dudes who get up behind you,grab your shoulders and jump up and down
>moral outrage over obvious shitposting
>I'm jealous because I'm a 300 lb tumblrina who will never be groped
what's the female equivalent of "beta"?
Groping women at concerts is part and parcel with the entire experience.
A concert is not supposed to be a "safe space."
The slight element of danger is what makes them so thrilling.
I have no idea why middle class white people are so intent on ruining punk, hip-hop, and other working class genres that have always promoted groping, but I will keep groping at these shows until they take my groping hands from my cold dead hands.
It's like being naked in an isolated dark alley, with a huge xenon sign that says, "Please don't rape me." I mean, I get it. It's obviously terrible to rape, but you are putting yourself in situations like this.
Why the fuck are we talking about rape? In this case, asking for it means asking to be groped.
Tumblrinas just associate any lack of consent with rape, and now it's stuck in society's head.
Right, I get that, but we should try and bring it back to what we're actually talking about.
If these arguments are legitimate for rape, they're sure as hell legitimate for something as harmless as groping.
Point is, crowd surfers shouldn't complain when they get groped because they went out of their way to put themselves into a situation like that. They trust random strangers with complete access to their bodies, yet they freak out when someone touches them inappropriately. I mean do I really have to explain this shit? It's common sense.
>people shouldn't complain when they get stabbed because they went out of their way to put themselves into a situation like that. They trust random strangers with complete access to their bodies, yet they freak out when someone stabs them. I mean do I really have to explain this shit? It's common sense.
>Point is, people shouldn't complain when they get killed because they went out of their way to put themselves into a situation like that. They trust random strangers with complete access to their bodies, yet they freak out when someone kills them. I mean do I really have to explain this shit? It's common sense.
>band plays 7 songs that all sound exactly the same (despite what their albums may have you believe)
>drunken guy in front makes fun of the lead singer's hair
>lead singer gets pissy, leaves, refuses to come back, rest of band slowly shuffles out
>5 years later, band refuses to come back to St. Louis
The Horrors are the whiniest fucking bitches, in case anyone was wondering
>two years ago, go to Washed Out concert
>get there early, get decent spot in front
>halfway through the show 6/10 chick gets in front of me, starts "dancing" to try to get me to let go of my spot
>firmly stand ground
>girl's bf behind me starts pulling my hair, telling me to stop fucking grinding on his girlfriend
>this has happened at more than one concert, so I punch him as hard as I can in his nose
>blood everywhere, bouncer immediately grabs me and kicks me out
>banned from venue
>local and recently successful band is hugely political and outspoken, super SJW
>brings all the tumblr kid assholes who never go to shows and do jack shit to support/contribute to the local scene out of the woodwork
>act like complete fucking assholes to everyone
>stomping ppl with their stupid fuckin Docs in the pit
>punching white guys for being up front
>did I mention they're acting like total fucking dicks
I don't actually disagree w/ most of what the band says and I love them as people but holy shit their shows have become so unpleasant. At least the normal crowdkilling retards are indiscriminate in their douchebaggery, are a minority at shows, and are mutually hated by everyone. These kids just act like fuckin dicks because they think they're entitled to do so, and everyone is too afraid of being blacklisted (the band has a massive amount of pull around here) to say or do anything about it.
>3 years ago, be sitting at Ian Fisher concert
>circle of people directly below me won't stop fucking talking loudly in the middle of the concert
>concert is just two guys and acoustic guitars so they're louder than the band
>get pissed, dump my nearly-full beer all over them
>bartender sees me, staff asks me to leave, banned from venue
>mfw bands avoid St. Louis like the plague because musicians can't stop getting their shit stolen
>people who start mosh pits at an Animal Collective concert
>woman in her 30s has to leave concert on stretcher because a teenager drop-kicked her in the face
Guys come see a show in St. Louis, it's great
Not that it matters but Ive been indecently assaulted at least twice at every gig I've ever attended and I would never crowdsurf because only absolute dickheads crowdsurf. How about you try getting your crotch and ass grabbed at every show you attend and then you can have a say in whether or not it's something to complain about l m a o
No retard, i am the one enjoying the exprerience seeing everything thats happening onstage. Fuck you whiny manlet, if you want to be in front you should have been there before i did you lazy cockgoblin
>the Deak starts singing Wide-Eyed
>all of a sudden a group of 6 or 7 teenage boys start ramming into people in a circle
>pit is full of mostly older people who get pissed, everyone separates from teenagers
>mosh pit is literally a twenty foot wide gap of a handful of teenagers flailing their arms and fists at each other while everyone around them tries to avoid them
>Avey leers at them from behind his keyboard
>aforementioned teenager drop-kicked grown woman in the face
>huge fat bouncer literally picks him up and lifts him out of the concert
>rest of teenagers proceed to ruin rest of show for everyone around them
That's how it works
I never understood this shit. Isn't the lot basically saying "dude, let's be physically violently aggressive to each other, but no fighting"?
Sounds fucking stupid tbqh, familiapaitachi.
As someone who is 5'2 and won't wear heels to a concert, I honestly feel that viewing should be arranged by height. I let people shorter than me go in front when I could help it and they feel entitled to have their 6'something boyfriends go in front too. Fuck that.
At this point I'm used to it, concerts in St. Louis are full of both literal and figurative children
>fun fact: the whole city is
One more St. Louis concert story before I go to bed, this one isn't as interesting but it's the last one I have
>go to see Sleigh Bells
>opening band is band I've never heard of called Elite Gymnastics
>band consists of neckbeard bragging to the audience about how he's high out of his mind on robotussin and singing to a karaoke machine while a projector plays youtube clips of Final Fantasy X, and a girl banging on a trash can lid to the beat of the music
>only concert I've ever been to where the band was actually booed
>after second song, booing got so loud that the girl chucked the trash can lid into the audience
>lid collides with dude's head, head proceeds to bleed
>band walks off stage
>go to merch table after show
>mfw no Elite Gymnastics merch
I actually went and looked up a couple of their albums the next day, their albums are pretty decent shoegaze but they sound literally nothing like what I saw
Fuck you short people. Nobody is going to give you hand outs.
Stand your ground and pull the fucking tampon out of your ass.
Who lets somebody push you around?
My dad would beat my ass into the dirt if he knew I was being a little bitch
Kek I've never had this happen with a boyfriend but usually their whiny cunt friends. I just hold my ground and push the shit out of them whenever it's even vaguely subtle. You can't really strike them, but shoving them as hard as you can in the movement of the crowd is such a good feeling.
Idk what it's like wherever you live but here in Australia all the fucking mutt behaviour at concerts is carried out by men. Girls are fucking annoying when they think that because they're shorter than me they can push in front of me but I've never had girls literally elbow me in the face and dig their fingers into my ribs on purpose, let alone sexually assault me
nigga you stupid as fuck
we only care when it's some stupid asshole who can't stand his ground well enough to not get shoved into our gear
shit even then most of the time that's not their own fault
To be fair it really depends on the type of gig you're attending.. I didn't get assaulted when I saw neutral milk hotel (which surprises me now, seeing what the people are like in an online community in which nmh is popular) or other "folk bands" but hip hop and radio friendly "indie rock" shows were a fucking nightmare. Genuinely curious - why is it different in the PNW?
it was because you were new, not because >muh racism
I'm a white guy and I still got weird looks and felt unwelcome when I first started going to shows. when it's not a HUGE show and new faces show up people get weary because the venues are often illegal spaces/there's often illegal shit going on. Everyone goes through it dude.
Man, you'd think they would've developed a thick skin from the days before they were shoegazey, when they'd open for other bands with their neo punk garbage and get shit thrown at them
get fucked scrub, manlets and midgets always shove their way to the front 5 minutes before the headliner when I, a tall person, have been there since doors, so you don't deserve to be at the front, sit the fuck down
>just associate any lack of consent with rape,
wew lad, can i, like rape you?
groping crowd surfers is shitty. having said that, i don't enjoy holding some cunt over my head during a show and i certainly don't enjoy getting kicked in the back of the head while someone is being thrown toward the barrier.
i never hold crowdsurfers up; they either get pushed away to be someone elses problem or if i'm near their legs/feet i'm pulling them to the ground (feet first). sideways or down, but never up
Yes, totally get this.
I'm a sound gal and I hate when I start seeing entire people in the air, because it means " hey, I don't only have to care about the sound, now I have to be on the lookout because some dummies could fall on my console". It happened once. Everyone was so pleased. Fuck those persons.
>console is ground level
either the venue is shit as fuck or yr diy space is lacking common sense
if there's no booth you put that shit behind the band or in another spot it won't get fucked up and have someone out in the room to tell you what to adjust. this is some basic shit famalam.
i am this guy
what are you going to do about it
What do you do at clubs when a girl is eyeing you, then you dance with her and touch her ass and thighs and she grinds on your dick, but what do you after that?
I never know. Like, how do you start a conversation, how do you introduce yourself to her, how do you get her number or make out? Never get to that point because I was too beta.
When I saw The Who a few years ago everyone was seated, even in the main area right in front of the stage (this was a packed out arena as well). I cracked and stood up when they played I Can See For Miles and some geriatric yelled "down in front".
I get that the majority of these people are of retirement age, but fuck me...
That is one of my pet peeves.
Did I stutter bitch ? Did I say I put it in the middle of the mosh pit every single time ? Of course I adapt and of course I happen to get stuffs I don't like done in shitty conditions. Don't try to lecture me about that. Most venue aren't shit. I just don't like crowdsurf because it reminds me of that night. PTSD m8.
start making out, don't need words for that if she's already grinding on your dick
only thing you need to say is something along the lines of 'hey wanna go somewhere more quiet'
How has this thread gone so long without talking about is and is not 'groping'?
I'm sure on the internet somewhere exists some SJW cunt that considers incidental contact with large areas of her body 'groping' - but I have never met that person IRL, and I've been to a lot of concerts, most of which had pits and crowd surfing.
Anyone who stages dives know that people are likely to touch you ANYWHERE on your body - you can't come flying at someone from above at high speed and expect them to be choosy or precise in where they catch you. I can't state how many inner thighs, breasts, and crotches I've touched at concerts, But I never once groped anyone.
For example, after falling on my back in a vicious circle pit, I reached up, grabbed someone, and pulled myself up. When I got up, i realized I had basically just used some dudes' package to do so. It was uncomfortable for him, I'm sure and I know it was for me (but not as uncomfortable as getting kicked in the head by a steel cap boot) - but it was not groping
Theres a difference between reaching up to support someone, realizing you're doing it via her tit, and passing her on - and giving that tit a few good squeezes and a rub while you're at it.
Crowd surfers know the difference between a hand on the inner thigh supporting them and a hand on the inner thigh moving towards their junk. And ones OK and ones not.
Its been awhile since I've been to a show, maybe these rabid SJWs do exist in IRL now, but in my experience when someone says they've been groped crowd surfing, they have - and more often than not the same dicks done it multiple times or been witnessed.
tl;dr: YOU know the difference between supporting a stage diver and groping one, as do they - don't be a dick
ask her opinion on the opening band - it's never a crime to have not heard of them so theres no pressure.
>"Have you heard of the opener, I don't know what to expect"
>"man I was surprised by that opening band, what'd you think?"
I held up my cell phone and showed her the new contact thing and she took the phone and put her number in.
Not sure if this would always work. Maybe you'll just get your phone stolen.
Yeah, I don't know...
Nice, I have to try this. Wonder if I'll have the courage though.
It's weird, I can dance with her and touch the shit out of her body and all, but I can't do something simple like asking for her number.
pretty much this, or if you want an actual relationship instead of just fucking, >>61812127
is fine. just make sure to exchange phone numbers and to call not too long after that...
Weed is more expensive than a mix drink.
Unless you're a grower, then your electric bill is more expensive than a mix drink.
I'm real stingy when it comes to my weed. I hardly smoke anybody out.
>STOP INSULTING ME. YOU MUST BE PROJECTING. EVERY NEGATIVE COMMENT YOU MAKE IS A PROJECTION OF YOURSELF. PROJECTION!!!!!1!
That motherfucker standing three rows in front of me filming with his cell phone the whole fucking show, holding it's bright ass screen directly in my line of sight with the stage.
I don't even get why people do this, no one ever will even watch that vid, just take a few photos.
I do know what to do about it now, though. Every show I go to a bring a roll of Mentos and make a game of throwing them as hard as I can at said cell phone. They gotta make a nice crack off the screen because people usually stop, and I've never had nothing but support from those standing around me - once the dude standing next to me asked for some so he could try and bean asshole's phone
>be at concert/club/party
>really awkward because can't drink
>try to awkwardly dance with girls
>look of disgust then they move away
>leave venue soon after
>think about experience on the way home
>fall asleep thinking about how I became a social retard
Whatever floats your boat bro.
I enjoy matching bowls with people at parties, but I get fucking pissed when I let other people smoke me dry.
I'd just buy her a 5 dollar mix drink and if she's cool, I'd probably smoke her out in my car.
Dude, the highest paid MLB batters - the best in the world - fail seven out of every ten times. and a lot of those misses are pretty fucking ugly and cringey.
Suck it up and go out and fail a few more time, you'll get it down sooner than you think
>Every show I go to a bring a roll of Mentos and make a game of throwing them as hard as I can at said cell phone. They gotta make a nice crack off the screen because people usually stop
>no one will ever even watch that vid
I've watched a couple of full concerts on youtube that were filmed by cell phone... I appreciate those but I didn't realize how annoying it probably was to others
Elite Gymnastics was good.
The dude is a total nu-male weenie, which is pretty odd for somebody who names his project after a Whitehouse lyric about child pornography, but he made good stuff.
I think he dates Grimes now.
>but I have never met that person IRL, and I've been to a lot of concerts, most of which had pits and crowd surfing.
thats because they dont exist, the extreme SJW 'le stare rape is real xDDd' thing is a /pol/ meme. the people pretending to be extreme SJWs like that are always are outed as trolls
I've met that person. Well, seen. Her name is Kathleen Hanna.
I went to a Bikini Kill show years ago and she pretty much a literal /pol/ meme , demanding men get in the back, and definitely out of the pit.
To be fair, it was a pretty good attempt at making gis more woman friendly (something as a straight guy looking to get laid, i fully endorse) just an extreme (and dumb, imo) way of going about it.
A week or two later, I was at a small punk venue and two Riot Grrrls showed up and tried to stop the pit because it was an example of "male dominance and patriarchy" or whatever. One of my friends - a girl - who had been enjoying the pit punched one of them in the face and they went away.
>midget somehow makes way up front
"Okay, rude. Whatever, we could both see. Nbd"
>taller bigger asshole shoves way up front
View is mostly of said asshole's back and shoulders. You get to play peek a boo with the band.
Cry me a river. Knowing my height, I always arrive early to a concert. Yet somehow I always end up getting shoved back by tall assholes. Fuck you. And fuck you people who arrive early and let your tall ass friends make their way up front.
>go to a noise/punx show
>have been to noise/punx shows before
>still feel like I'm doing something that I'm not supposed to be doing
>still feel like I'm breaking the rules somehow and not standing the right way, not reacting the right way, etc
m'yeah. POC, playing in a mathcore band, a noise band and a mathrock band.
Never felt this.
You just have to not give a shit what's expected of you. It's not easy but it's fucking necessary... If you enjoy it, you're meant to go there.
>decide to take one picture with flash
>everyone around me is staring, giving me shit
fuck off pls??
>prefers blacks to act like ghetto rats who ruin everything that exists?
you pay for the music, faggot, not a photo shoot. taking pictures at a concert is for shallow women and other people who are there for reasons other than the enjoyment of live music.
>this entire thread
>¨People talking over quiet music
Went to joanna newsom, venue was rather big and the sound was rather soft. these two 'adult' fuckheads wouldn't shut up. rustled my jimmies real hard. there were whispering, but thats even more annoying because of the hiss generated by it.
If you wanna talk don't go to a fucking concert
