This post needs no introduction. We’ve probably been these types at some point in our lives.
These are the people I like the best. They come to the show, find a spot, maybe have a drink and general enjoy the show from the initial spot they found without talking much or bothering anyone. The unsung heroes of a concert.
These people probably hate their jobs and don’t go out too much as they have concerts as primary “outings”. In the end, they try to make up for all the unhappiness in the other aspects of their lives by Wooing extra hard (and often) to try and create an unforgettable experience.
Yelling at the Band
Perhaps these people are the alpha’s in their work or social groups, but they seem to think that they can dictate the flow of a show just by yelling out songs they want to hear. It rarely works, the bands write down set lists for a reason. These people are usually heavy drinker and get progressively worse as the show goes along.
Maybe the worse people at concerts. They go to concerts to talk to their friends while casually checking out the concert. WHY DID YOU PAY FOR THE SHOW? I have no idea. Perhaps they want to seem cool. Either way, they are very distracting and annoying.
Can I? Should I?
These indecisive motherfuckers really like the band but are constantly unhappy with their spot at the show. Their passive aggressiveness forces them to spend most of the time deliberating whether or not they should move closer before finally making it to the front of the stage with two songs remaining. Then they’ll look at each other and be all like “omg! we are so close” and high five each other for their ambitious move while everyone around them hates them for disrupting their personal spacing.
Uses their SLR’s as an excuse to be push themselves to the front of the stage, then spend all the concert trying to enjoy it through the LCD screens on their cameras. They have a look of determination on them at all time as they try to capture that one magical moment of the show that will surely be sold to a photo gallery or national publication. They always do this little dance with other photographers where they trade spots. It’s sorta amusing, I guess.
Spend half their time using their POS cameras trying to get the perfect shot not realizing their technical limitations. May use flash to an annoying degree.
These people hold their phones up to record the entire show because all their friends will watch a shitty recording of a live show. Just kidding, no one watches that junk. Why do it?
People who are having too good a time
No matter how much fun you are having, there’s always those people who are just losing it and having some sort of internal revelation. It’s specially amazing if it’s some random new band with only an EP to their name. How did they build such an emotional connection so quickly? I’ll never know.
There’s probably more, feel free to comment!
