mmm, i go to punk shows and there are definitely circle pits at the Dropkick Murphys shows. Security had to rush into the pit at one point to drag away this psycho who was punching dudes.

They do seem to be lacking at the moment. The last time I saw Champion (yeah, that long ago) the singer was calling for a circle pit to which everyone stood and gaped and his response was something along the lines of 'Oh, wow, maybe it hasn't got over the ocean yet.'

Stage dives are always in full-effect and PA stack dives are getting more frequent.

I haven't seen a circle pit in months (in Edmonton), at a hardcore show at least. I think the last one was at a Wednesday Night Heroes show I went to in mid December. It's been even longer since I jumped into one though; I made the mistake of barreling into some 14 year old girl or something because I wasn't paying attention to where I was going and then felt bad afterward. The big thing in hardcore in Edmonton is side to side, which is kind of cool. Way better than hardcore dancing and a million times better than stupid push pits. Stage dives are big when there's a stage, but 90% of our shows are in halls.

Side to side is very popular here as well, I'm a fan.

When I went to see Shai Hulud no one wanted to start a circle pit, it was just kung-fu ballerinas.

Hardcore dancing has generally become looked down on in Edmonton (where I'm from), it's sweet. When people actually do start dancing, a bunch of us usually start doing side to side to disrupt lame throw down moves. There are some exceptions though; I was at a show in December and while this super-mosh band was playing, people started doing coordinated push-ups and trying to spin kick the ceiling. It was the first time I'd ever seen people do push-ups in a pit, and I must admit, I was ashamed.

Something i dont understand is those ' slamer ' who call hardcore dancing gay.

Hardcore dancing is way more violent. more stupid looking ? cant deny :P

Honestly i go to hardcore shows to have fun, and enjoy the music.

You know whats make a show good ( well it take a pretty good part ) The ambiance, Crownd.

An Hardcore show isnt an hardcore show whitout those ' invisible ninja fighters '


+ do you think hardcore bands make their breakdowns for slamming ? Hell no.


Sorry for bad grammar btw

IMPORTANT QUESTION: Should circle pits go in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction?

I NEED TO KNOW


this ended badly once
when it first started i went the opposite direction to everyone else hahha
#29
THey do indeed always go anti-clockwise, I only just realised this after reading it here and thinking about it. Odd.

Side to side is awesome too, that's usually my bag.

There is a disturbing lack of circle pits in my local scene. At a show my band played in December, we asked for circle pits between like, every other song. We finally got one, and it was all of three people. It's sad.

Boy oh boy. Our scene is pretty weak though, in terms of music and "scene"

I despise you. I'm so embarrassed that the music I listen to is associated with that ridiculous form of dance. Perhaps when you're older than 16 you'll realize how ridiculous it is too.

Anyways, I've seen two, maybe three circle pits going clockwise; it's rare like a solar eclipse it is.

You can do everything you want... except hardcore dance.

i think the term "hardcore dancing" needs to be changed due to the fact that most people who listen to actual hardcore bands do not do this.

I want to see more circle pits during day to day activities.

ATM WITHDRAWAL MOSH.

I completely agree with this.

I played a video of Champion during a presentation in class once. And Jim called for stage dives. I was sorely disappointed when none of my fellow students dived off their desks.
