Concert Etiquette

Originally uploaded by central village.
I found a cool photo from the Kaiser Chiefs show at Webster Hall, taken by Central Village, who happens to have a great blog and shares my sentiment that the Kaiser Chiefs are a great live band.

A few weeks ago I was also at Webster Hall to see Bloc Party and ended up getting in a fight. I have a very low tolerence for "Bad Concert Etiquette" and some guy set me off when he decided to mosh through the crowd toward the front. He tried to go straight through Shelly, almost knocking her over. When all was said and done I almost knocked him over. Anyhow, I came across another blog about the Kaiser Chiefs show at Webster Hall and damn if this blogger didn't also get into a fight. I wonder if Webster Hall somehow brings out those with "Bad Concert Etiquette". Come to think of it, I was at a Rilo Kiley show there a few months ago and a fight almost broke out because one group of very drunk people wouldn't stop loudly talking. When another group asked them to please be quiet they got louder and responded with some tripe like "we're not at the fucking opera". Which brings me to my point... there is a lot of "Bad Concert Etiquette" out there. I'm drafting a manifesto against "Bad Concert Etiquette" which I hope to widely distribute. If you have any suggestions as to what should be included or a list of examples, please leave a comment or email me. Thanks!
