at what point do these people realize how selfish it is though?
to rush to stand in front, EVERY, SINGLE, TIME. lol. crazy. the sound is always better a little ways back anyways.
i think it has something to do with the west coast entitlement complex.
most of them are cool i know these folks i see them all the time.
darxtar (sweet name by the way) we might be thinking of two different crews. i don't know anything about goons and having a way.
The only people who have more of an entitlement complex than west coasters is some deadheads! combining the two can sometimes produce a whole new level of depth to me, me, mine. Pushing sucks but those people are that way all the time and lucky for those of us with manners and respect for our fellow attendees we only have to put up with them some of the time. They are the ones that have to live with themselves all the time.
I never got a west coast entitlement vibe, and I've seen more shows in the bay area than any other metropolitan area.
I've been to many shows in the bay area as well but not as many as I have attended on the east coast. It is really great that your experiences have not led you to that conclusion. I'm always willing to change my mind when presented with alternative situations or experiences. Are you from the west coast?
