Stupid Things That Stupid People Do At Gigs

I was inspried to write this whilst at The Heartbreaks' gig a couple of months ago and if you read my post on my other blog (link at on the nav bar) then you'll know what I'm talking about, so I thought I would run through some gig etiquette!
1. I don't mind people taking photos during gigs because we all do it - I only do it for my blog so I can prove that I actually went. But when you whip out your IPad and hold it up for the ENTIRE gig, I just want to knock you out. It baffles me why some people pay to go to a gig when they could watch blurry footage in the comfort of their own home on YouTube?
2. Farting. Farting in a large crowd should be illegal. You can't move to catch your breath. Why do people think that this is acceptable? You have a couple thousand people surrounding you and the farts have nowhere to go.
3. You get to the show early. You get a good spot in the crowd. You're happy for 15-20 minutes then a late-arriving straggler is coming from behind. There's little you can do to stop them. Now, instead of watching the band, you're counting hairs on the back of your the persons head. In my case this is even worse because i'm a short arse at 5ft 3 and can hardly see anything anyway!

These are just a few of the things that irritate me at gigs, i'm sure there are a lot more!


  1. Oooh there's so many things that annoy me about people at gigs. I am just under 5ft so I tend to just stand at the back now (I used to go to gigs a lot more often and want to be 'in the action', but I feel too old now...). x

    1. Haha, you're never too old! I know how you feel, I hate being small! x
