Hey, I'm going to Suffocation and Winds Of Plague tonight and it's my first real metal concert.

I'm 14 and quite skinny (5'9" and about 58kg) so I'll probably stay away from the mosh pit and I'd rather just headbang and watch the bands anyway.

What should I wear? black skinny jeans or normal? And I'll probably wear an Opeth shirt will that be fine?

Also is it smart taking things? I will need my phone but thinking about taking my iPod to record video, is that smart? I will probably drop it...

Sorry for all the questions, but I just wanna be ready =P. The venue is kinda a small room underground and is really hot (Transmission Room Auckland NZ)

i don't see how what you wear matters at all.

Just take your phone. Anything more will be more to worry about. Maybe a bit of money to buy a shirt or something, depending on if they sell them there or not.

You should wear what you normally wear, try not to focus on the little things and just enjoy it.

You can record videos with an iPod now? Out-rageous.


Also, watch out for The Hand

unless your going to a super elitist kvlt gr1m show what you wear doesn't matter.

Mosh pits are fun when your a kid and people watch out for eachother because they've all been the skinny white kid don't be afraid, triple knot your shoes, protect your face and your manhood watch for the forty year old sweaty fat guy without his shirt that you will see at every show for the rest of your life (there is always one).

Bring money but put it somewhere safe, my buddies gotten two bullet belts stolen from him at concerts, a shoe, a couple beers, and his dignity so look after your shit.

For god's sake don't yell anything out between songs, you'll look like an idiot. And don't forget to smoke cigarettes.

How do you get a belt stolen off you?

"Hey forty year old sweaty fat guy. What? You want to give me a handjob? Well, I guess your sweat could lubricate me while I fantasize about Angela Gossow. Just give me a second while I ta-- Hey! Where did my belt go?"

This. I hate it when people do that. There's a group of idiots who yell in between songs in every show I go to. It's pissing off. Yknow what's worse? Yelling 'Play *insert song here*'.
In the last show I went to, there was a metalcore band on the bill, and a bunch of idiots were shouting,'PLAY SOME COVERS,YAAR, PLAY LAMB OF GOD!' as if that was the only band they had heard.

It probably was the only band they'd ever heard

the 'YAAR' probably confused you. It's like saying 'dude' or 'man' here. I'm the only pirate I know.

Jeans with tight pockets so someone cant sneak their hand in and pinch your stuff. Only take your phone dont bother with your ipod, someone will just knock into you and you will drop it anyway. Mosh pits can break out at anytime so if you dont wanna be in one stay alert and watch around you aswell as watching the band coz there are some people who just go to gigs to start pits, including a few of my friends who you wouldnt consider 'pit starters'
GEAR :


Ibanez SA260FM

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

All the gigs I've been to have had a cloak room, so I normally put stuff like Wallet/phone/Etc in my jacket and pay £2 for it to be the Venues Problem for the night
