So I have two questions regarding concerts.

1. About how long would a Dimmu Borgir + Behemoth concert last?

2. How early should I get there before it starts if I want front row? Or can I just shove my way up there during the concert?

Thanks.

If you want a good chance to grab a tour tee before the gig starts and still get a good chance of being around the front, go around 1hr 30mins before the gig.

You know, when you, like, you grab a woman's breast and it's... and you feel it and... it feels like a bag of sand when you're touching it.

You don't need to get there too early in my experience, it really depends how big the venue is and how many people are there. I would think it would last maybe around 2 and a half 3 hours. In my experience I can usually get to the front at any time during most shows.

same as a normal concert probably??

you can either get there reaaaally early and guarantee a front space or you could push your way through as people move around between sets/songs. or just crowdsurf and twist a lot so people drop you near the front.

I also have a question. Is it cool to wear a t-shirt of the band you're going to see? On the one hand, it shows that you really support the band you're going to see, but on the other hand, you may look like a dweeb.

As for pushing your way to the front, I say it's less of a bitch move if you just go early. Other people go early, and it's not really fair to them if you just smack your way past them after they have waited all day.

Don't wear the shirt of the band you're seeing. Also NEVER EVER buy a shirt of the band you're seeing and then put it on over your shirt that you already have on. Pushing through is fine, it's not like it will really affect somebody else's position that much. Just if somebody doesn't want to move then don't try to make them move.

You think too much

And people trying to push past you at a show is one of the single most ****ing annoying things i've encountered

People who do it are twats

No, it's just kind of annoying looking when people put shirts over shirts, but it's fine. I'm sorry if I sound all pretentious. I guess pushing is annoying, the only time I really do it is if I'm trying to look for a place to dance or skank and if I'm trying to find my friends, I always tap somebody on the shoulder first though.

True, I usually will buy it after the show, seems easier.

Not particularly...

I mean seriously...why would you put so much thought into what you are going to wear? Noone will care...

I care how people see me, just like I care how people look. That show will probably the only interaction I will ever have with a large number of people, and I want to make the most of it for everyone. I don't want people to go to a concert where they'll be like "Wow, this guy standing right next to us smells like raunchy balls." Just like I don't want people to go to a concert where they're like "Who honestly wears that kind of ****?" Oh, and way to get my joke, btw.

Haha, everyone smells like raunchy balls at most shows. It's a tightly packed space with many sweaty hot people, some smoking cigarettes.
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

No smoking by-law in my city. Anyways, just because you're going to sweat, it doesn't mean you don't need to shower before going out.

I always shower before going to a show and end up smelling like complete balls after the show.

And you would smell worse if you didn't shower before. If everyone does their part, then everyone can go home that much happier.

It's a question of valuing social norms. You tell people a lot about yourself by what you wear. Like I said, it may be the only impression you ever make of yourself.

If people are going to judge me based on the fact i'm wearing a t-shirt of the band playing I really wouldn't want to be associated with them anyway seeing as they're obviously ****ing stupid.

I really don't get why people seem so pissy about what other people wear to shows...

That problem would be completely gone if everyone just wore nothing to shows .

i don't think its a case of being pissy, more thinking that people look stupid. perfectly valid.
