Tv on the Radio is playing at the house of blues in boston, and I've been looking for people to go with, but no one I know is down for it. If I don't go, I'll regret it, should I just go alone? Has anyone been to a show alone?

I haven't been to a show alone, but I've gone with just my dad before which is kind of similar. But yes, you'll regret it if you don't go, even if you are alone! You might even meet people.

Just go alone. I'm going to go to a concert alone in 9 days, I always make friends at concerts so it's not really a big deal. Just talk to people (you at least have one thing in common) and it'll feel like you're with friends.

I went to see Bob Dylan alone. It wasn't the same as it would've been with friends, beacuse it was a ''strictly seated only'' concert.

I actually prefer to be alone at concerts.

Yeah dude, do it. I've been to a couple shows alone, all good. At least you won't have to worry about your friends getting lost
#9
going to shows alone is just about as much fun as going with people.

and if your friends won't go see TVOTR, you need to smack 'em upside the head. teach them some sense.

Nothing worse than going to a show with someone that either A. don't know/like the band/type of music or B. don't like being around large crowds .......
People I know usually fall into one of those two categories so I usually go solo
but there's absolutely nothing worse than this

Man especially when you go with someone that only likes one song by the artist ..... you gotta listen to them talking through the rest of the show

Almost none of my friends like the same music as I do, so I end up alone at concerts quite a bit. Usually I end up talking to people, and if I don't, there's still the band. It's really no less fun.
If only summer rain would fall, on the houses and the boulevards
And the sidewalk bagatelles, it's like a dream
With the roar of cars and the lulling of the cafe bars,
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine...

Nothing wrong about going alone. If you're lucky, you'll meet some new people and hang out with them during the show. That's how I meet a few of my concert buddies; i meet them at the show, turns out they live some-what close to me, and we plan on meeting up at another show.
Oh, and enjoy TVOTR if you decide to go!

I went to see Meshuggah alone, just talk to other people that are there. I made 2 friends at that concert with whom I jam regularly.
#14
I'd go if I were you. Paul Gilbert played in my town recently and I didn't go coz I had noone to go with. I soooooo wish I had gone now, you're regret it if you don't.

I went to Tool alone. Just kept to myself and enjoyed the show.

I saw Serj Tankian alone simply because it would kill be to miss it. There is no problem doing it, and it's cool to meet people. Wear a suit and enjoy the show.

I went to Beck this September somewhat alone. I had bought my ticket the day they came out thinking my friend who told me about the show would get one too. Well he didn't. When the concert came near I heard a couple other friends had gotten tickets from a broker, but they had balcony seats (real nosebleeds) while I was on the floor. We went to it and left together (aka I bummed a ride), but I was alone on the floor.

Strangely enough, I almost immediately ran into some guy who was in a class with me at the time. We started talking for the first time ever and it turned out he was good friends with my weed dealer who is in turn a friend of my sisters from high school. Small ****ing world, eh?

The concert was amazing Beck was great and MGMT opening was mindblowing as well. I say do it.

Yeah I go to gigs alone quite frequently. As long as it's a band/artist I'm really into, I don't really even notice that I'm alone to be honest.

I went to Metallica alone in November. Found out after I could have gone with someone from work, but whatever, I got to see them and it was cool.

Yeah, there's nothing weird about going alone. You'll definitely regret not going at all more than going alone. You'll have a good time since you enjoy the band and you can even meet people who share your crazy taste in music. And btw I'm going to see TVOTR at House of Blues in Dallas in May and I'm frickin pumped.

yeah i went to one concert alone, it was pretty bad ass. plus if other people are as big of fans as you are then you share something in common and can easily start a conversation

Just go alone. I'd go to concerts alone if my parents would let me (assholes let my brother go alone when he was my age!).
