Have you Ever freaked people out during a show?

#66327 2 years, 10 months ago
Sometimes I have screams and grunts escape during certain songs, and it startles people. Things like "can't take no more fuckin rain", or ride ride ride...). I've also caused my fair share of security guards and cops to shake their heads in disgust and or amazement when the music gets hot. I love it when they look or point at me like I am so zoned out I am lost. I just smile at them and give them the peace sign and continue to groove with the music. It's like a reverse freak out.
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

So interfering with others' ability to hear the music and enjoy the show is exhibiting tolerant, kind behavior how?

I was tripping face at Radio City and I forgot why but some people by the bathroom though I was freaking out or something and were like "oh you can ride it out" and stuff but I was like smiling and in an awesome mood but I went to talk and couldn't even say anything but I smiled and gave them a thumbs up or suttin like that, I actually thought it was pretty funny people though I was having a bad trip.

so thats not really me freaking anyone out but people thinking I was....

Ha. That's more like me. I got freaked out. And may have inadvertantly freaked a few out. But it was all fun. Just rolling with it. : )
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

I don't think I've ever freaked anyone out at a Dead show, but when I've brought my A game to a non-Dead show I know I've gotten some suspicious looks -- most recently at a John Butler Trio show.

He has his share of freaks, but there were also some wine sipping yuppies about half our age who just could not figure out why a couple of middle aged, straight-on-the-surface looking folks (we had chatted politely before the show) where dancing their asses off like their life depended on it.

At the end of the show there was nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.

If you stumble, make it part of the dance.

other peoples enjoying the show (in their own way) has always been part of the whole experience for me. Wether it be whistles (83msg) or cheers or whatever, it all adds to the energy. Last year at Red Rocks I met this couple who were only able to get one show (sat,) and they (Furthur) put on an amazing show and the couple I met went crazy (in a good way) and that actually made the show more enjoyable for me.

The second night at Richfield Coliseum in the fall of '93 I was REALLY out of my head and dancing like a madman. It was the best time I ever had at a show. This lady behind me was freaked, but in a good way. She told me she could tell what a great time I was having. She also said something very profound, though I don't remember exactly how she said it. She basically told me that no matter what happens in life and how bad things might get, I'll always have the Dead and memories from shows like this. There was also this kid behind me who kept looking at me like I was the weird one. He was some straight laced teenager who was wearing a tie dye but who obviously knew nothing about the music. I didn't see him move once the whole night. I think I freaked him out in a bad way.
