...and those whistlers, OMG !! we had one behind us at Tower Fri nite.....went right thru ya, i swear. Why do people also feel the need to hold a convo right in the middle of a good jam or space....drives me nuts, i turn around and "glare"....a couple o times, then i do the ol ear cup, i don't care if it's rude, i think it's ruder to TALK and YAP during a great jam !!

If i don't like a song, i just sit and listen, or go to the restroom. I'm sorry as i've observed it is mostly those harboring a beer in hand too... very frustrating, i thought about making these lil cards to hand out when this happens, but i fear it would make problem worse at time of incident ~

Yep, it's a rock'n'roll show. I've been going to rock'n'roll shows for 40 years. I don't need or want to jump around every single time anymore. So, because my money is just as green as anyone else's, on the nights when I prefer to get into the music by watching and listening while sitting down, I'd like a place to be able to do that.

Moreover, for (say) the Philathon, joining the line early enough to get near one of the rails and then standing up basically until the show ends, comes out to 7.5 hours on yer feet per show (105 hours over the whole run). Fuck yeah I want to be able to sit down un-bothered a few nights!

maybe the designated sitting and quiet area section should be all around the taper section.....that way it can have a trickle down effect.

if you can't hear over people talking the band needs to be turned fuckin' up.

And folks sitting down and expecting those around them to do the same should be fed to wild pigs.

This is a good idea.
But also, the sitting section could be on your couch at home, the next day on gdradio.net.

I saw the black crowes in albany in october and during their acoustic set a random girl in the crowd decided that she was going to play along with the band on tombourine for the entire set. That was big, big fun right ther.

BEST THING TO DO IS BLOCK THOSE CLOWNS OUT AND FOCUS ON THE MUSIC, MOVE TO ANOTHER SPOT (CLOSER TO THE STAGE,) OR TELL THEM BETWEEN A SONG THAT IF THEY PIPE DOWN WHILE THE BANDS PLAYIIN THEY MIGHT LEARN SOMETHING.

Listening does not require sitting down! I am an avid dancer and dance the whole time, that does not make blocking out loud drunken conversations any easier.

The issue is not about 'be quiet and sit down,' sitting has nothing to do with it. The discussion is just about how to raise awareness in people that the band playing is worth listening to, so please be respectful of the musicians and the audience by paying attention.

It seems that most agree the obnoxious noise is alcohol related...
