thank goodness they posted a "please be considerate" message. this past weekend was way out of hand with the phones, the videos and the picture taking.
Ugh. I am guilty of taking a few photos myself but I try to pull out the phone, cover the light of the screen with my hand, quickly take a shot and then put the thing away.
sounds proper and respectful to me. i saw one person this weekend taking lots of video on his phone, but he held it low, he didn't obstruct anyone's view, and he was polite and respectful. no one had any issues with him and we were all appreciative that some video of the show was captured.
i'm talking about the growing numbers of serious offenders who will push and shove to get a picture, and those who will hold the camera right in front of your face for long periods of time like they are the center of the universe.
i know some people will think that i'm exaggerating a bit, but i'm not. in my 28 years of going to concerts i have never experienced such rude behavior by some individuals as i have at Terrapin Crossroads. and that includes hardcore punk shows. no joke.
on the flip side, i've also encountered some of the kindest individuals at Terrapin Crossroads.
