What do you guys think about going to concerts/shows/gigs alone? I don't like it very much because I think it's generally just a better time if you're with a friend or two, but if I have to I will. If I have to I usually end up meeting someone in line or while waiting for stuff to start anyways.

I've only gone to a couple of shows alone, but on each occasion I've run into & hung out w/ people I know.

EDIT: Oh, except for a couple of classical performances I went to alone for my intro to music course. Didn't run into people I knew there, & one was pretty awkward 'cuz it was crowded & I was stuck between a couple old ladies. I'd do it again though, I got a $60 ticket for $10 - student discounts are rad.

I usually prefer to watch concerts alone. I'm a people person until the asshole next to me takes out his phone or starts chewing gum obnoxiously loud.

Unfortunately, I have friends that either:

Don't like the bands I do
or
Don't care about shows

So I go to shows pretty often by myself.

I've gone to one show alone. It was Weezer with Manchester Orchestra and Coheed opening for them. None of my friends wanted to go, so I said "fuck it" and went alone. I wasn't going to let my friends make me miss an incredible show. Best decision ever. I ended up just talking to a bunch of random people around me and smoked with them. I also got to see Rivers prance around in a blond wig and pretend to be Lady Gaga. It was a fantastic night.

Morals of the story

A) Going alone is fine. You can meet new people
B) I need new friends.

I went to Soundwave last year on my own, and am going this year on my own. Didn't really make much difference, the only bit that sucks is waiting for bands to start, when the bands actually playing I wouldn't talk to my mate anyway.
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

I always go to shows alone, cuz.. Foreveralone and all that jazz. I meet new people there and people I've met before but, we only meet each other at shows.
#13
the second time i went to see Motorhead i went alone since none of my friends could make it/were broke. I winded up just meeting people there and chatting them up. Same thing when i saw the Misfits, winded up meeting a cool group of people and wound up hanging out with them afterwards
#14
I went to see Steriogram alone. Ended up just hanging out with the band, no biggie
#15
Yeah, don't have to look out for anyone, don't feel self-conscious etc.

I've done this. If there's a band you want to see and no one else can go, go. I'm not going to pass up any opportunity to see a band that inspires me enough to go alone.

How quiet are the shows you go to?

I haven't yet but I might have to go by myself to the next show I want to see.

I'v been to a few shows alone, and I'll be seeing Iced Earth and the National Philharmonic alone pretty soon as well. It's no biggie.

I usually meet up with people at the gigs. I hate driving with others because you gotta wait for them or keep up with them the whole time. And it's awkward if I end up wanting to take a girl home.

I've never seen any bands I like with anyone I like... I got 2 tickets for all the concerts I've seen and twice my mom ended up using the other one, once I had to throw a ticket away, and Once my brother came with me and bitched the whole time.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

This same thread was bumped/created about 2 weeks ago. I remember reading it.
I can't be assed for the sauce though. I'm too lazy.

I think have established, after numerous threads on the exact same topic, that if you want to go a gig on your own, go to a gig on your own.
