The Clapper - does anyone know who he is??

#83845 2 years, 9 months ago
Hi!!

So I hit a bunch of the shows on the West Coast (Eugene, Vegas, Greek). Vegas was an especially strange experience as Deadheads and tie dyes did not go with the gamblers and dark tones of the Hard Rock hotel. LOL.

Was kind of ripped for this show..........hehe. During the 1st set about half way in to it, there was a guy that was clapping along to the music..........not rythmically but just kind of wierd and OCD like. I just assumed he was higher then me.

Later on during the second set I moved back and was just dancing. I kept hearing what I thought was a weird echo off the back wall that sounded like...........clapping. Until I finally turned around and looked and it was the Clapper.

You can hear him on the Aud recordings too.

So today I am listening to Mohagan center from this week and I hear clapping. LOL. Sounds like the same guy and same weird OCD clap.

Anyone know what I am talking about??

Peace.

I don't know but I have feeling that I'm going to be ripped and turn around and see him now, lol. That would be weird
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

LOL. That would be weird.

And what you described is exactly what happened to me at the Joint. I just turned around and there he was.

BTW - not trying to an a**hole about it either, we all have our own way of interpreting the music. I sat by the Hearing Impaired translator in Eugene one night........was really cool to see her sign the words for sure, but more interesting to sign the music, especially the jams.

I was standing very close to " The Clapper" in Las Vegas. The clapping was so very unique...I was sure it would rupture my tympanic membrane during the first set!
Too pat to open and too cool to bluff...

Thanks you all for your comments. I was wondering if it was just me or if it was for real. As I have listened to the last weeks Auds, I am sure I keep hearing him. Too funny.

Yes, there certainly is a pretty wide bandwidth of "interesting" people. I love it......the diversity.

I come to the shows pretty much looking like a cop........bald with regular clothes on........yet high as a kite.

Gotta wave my freak flag high.

I was at both Syracuse and Albany shows, and I couldn't help but notice this guy in a tie-dye smoking weed from a pipe. He had fairly long hair too.

Did anyone else see this dude, or was I the only one?
