Last couple weeks I have been lacking sleep and not just because work has been insane (more so next week) & my stupid neighbours doing laundry at all hours. But because I've been to quite a few concerts.
Grizzly Bear
Hot Chip
LCD Soundsystem
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club


The problem with concerts is that I usually get surrounded by talkers, spastic dancers or smokers. Examples: Grizzly Bear = Spastic dancer, Hot Chip & LCD Soundsystem = Chain smoker, BRMC = Talkers + chain smokers, Fanfarlo = Talkers, Ash = Spastic dancers. All three types of people annoy the hell out of me. I kind of expect the spastic dancers, I mean I do have to keep an eye on their flailing limbs but other than that it's bearable. Smokers, well it's just shit to come home smelling like an ashtray because people feel the need to chain smoke indoors where they can get away with it. Then there are the talkers, for the life of me I will never understand the people who buy tickets to see a band whose music they supposedly enjoy. Yet while said band is playing they spend the whole evening talking about what Jonno did last weekend or how smashed they got at the last concert they went to, or some other inane shit that they have to yell in their mates ear because there is a band playing. I mean go to the bar, stay home if that's all you're going to do. Why waste money on concerts if you're not even going to listen to the music?
It's not like I stay in the same place for entire concerts either but as soon as I find somewhere nice, that I can see properly and hear clearly. These people always seem to find exactly the same spot and try to ruin my night. Sometimes they do.
