Ok so, I'll be going to see Between the Buried and Me in Albury soon and I have tinitus and i'm paranoid really bad about making it worse.

So do you think that wearing ear plugs would pretty much cancel out ALL the damage the loud noise would make? I'm not sure of the venue size either.
I will leave if I feel any damage, despite my love for BTBAM, so any advice on what could protect my hearing furthermore would be great.

Yes. It does.

It cuts down a LOT on the treble and middle, helping this greatly.

It's like putting your fingers in your ears.

What kind of ear plugs? musician or foam rubber for sleeping in noisy areas?

They're like foam, but they're great quality and they can go deep into my ear.
they cost $17 alone.
Edit: Oops, they're designed for musicians.

To be honest. A pack of 4 pairs i picked up from poundland has stopped me from getting tinnitus in college (recording and playing drums) about 10 times

Yeah, these'll protect your ears.

From everything.

It'll be similar to what people standing outside the venue will hear. Fuck all.

Get a proper pair of ear plugs that filter out harmful frequencies, similar to what the guy above is suggesting.

Sorry for posting in my own thread but I've got all of the help I need.
But seriously, I'll be happy if I can hear shit all, I know BTBAM's music back to front anyway and I can feel confident that my ears are okay.
Thanks guys.

This stuf simply isn't true, you'll still be able to hear everything, the ear plugs will just bring noise levels below 80 decibells, the level where permanent hearing damage occurs.
