so a few nights ago i went to a show at a place called knights of columbus, with war from the harlots mouth, psyopus and a few other bands. now im not a big fan of this type of music, but a couple of my close friends were going and i thought itd be pretty cool. as you would imagine, plenty of mosh pits and whatnot.

during one of the songs from one of the bands (i think it was psyopus...) there was absolutely noone in the mosh pit, kinda just an empty circle with people facing inwards headbanging or whatever. so some guy (might have been drunk, not sure) walked in with a beer in his hand and walks into the mosh pit and just stands in it, nodding his head to the music, just enjoying it or whatever. as hes doing that, some kid starts hardcore dancing in the mosh pit. now, im not expert on hardcore dancing (i think its some stupid ****), but me and my friends could tell that he was aiming to hit that guy. i dunno if the purpose of hardcore dancing is to hit people, but anyway hes dancing away and the guy is just standing there. the kid gets closer and closer, and all of a sudden just smashes his elbow right into the guys face EXTREMELY hard. the guy is knocked out cold, blood streaming from his nose and his mouth, so i call the paramedics. they get on the scene pretty fast, clean the guy up, take him away on the stretcher etc etc.

after all this, they ask "how did this happen" to some people that were standing on the edge of the circle. all of them said, "oh he fell" or "he tripped over something" none of them said that the kid hit him while he was dancing. i was thinking to myself, wtf? this kid obviously hit him on purpose and ****ed him up pretty damn hard, shouldnt he get some sort of blame?

so i come to the pit, wondering what you guys think. the kid obviously did it on purpose, and wasnt very remorseful over what he did. what are your thoughts on this situation?

tl;dr some kid bashed a guys face in on purpose while hardcore dancing

You should have told on the kid and then left the concert. The little bitch deserved to be reprimanded for putting a guy in the hospital.

Nope, douchebags in mosh pits are dangerous.
Especially those hardcore dancers.
There was this one dude at a Linkin Park concert wearing a spiked arm band in the moshpit. My friend got hit in the face with that and the dude thought his arm band was cool!

Hardcore dancing is so gay. Although it is fun to watch kids make an ass out of themselves.

I think hardcore dancing is stupid in the first place... but hitting someone without prompt is stupid ^3.

not if you aren't a complete fucktard.

any decent pit should be completely safe even if you get knocked to the floor.

True that!!!

Still less unpleasant than having guys OD on you...
As for the "charged with a crime" thing, it's assault, the guy that got hit could press charges if he wanted.

Yeah. Every pit I've been in people help you up if you fall, etc...it's just supposed to be fun.


other than this one.

Yeah gigs are generally quite safe even if they are a bit rough.

At Reading some girl got knocked over just as people were pushing in the crowd (not a mosh pit) and 2 of us grabbed her and got her on her feet before she even fell over. Everyone looks out for eachother.

Though at RATM, we had to crowdsurf some unconscious girl over us, it was so crowded everyone got crushed against the back of the pit area, and we were forced to jump over the barrier into the security section.

If someone is stupid enough to stand in the middle of a mosh pit, then they deserve what they get.

mosh pits, hardcore dancing and all this stuff is just plain dumb...i don't understand why ppl do that. I mean... it's not even funny! it just ruins a part of the show of the people who wants to listen to the music...

I disagree.

However, I think if someone is stupid enough to say that, then they deserve what they get.

not if what they get is beyond what you'd expect in any normal mosh pit.

hell that's beyond what you'd expect in a rougher than normal pit.

I don't like mosh pits that much. Had a bit of fun in some for a bit, but overall they're just a pain.

People clear an area, push everyone back to form them and it's like "f*ck off I'm trying to watch the damn band." It's like everyone around has to be shoved around and squished inbetween people because a few people wanna be a bit violent. And I recon in every moshpit about 20% of the people probably do just want to hurt people, luckily the other 80% help people up etc.

My buddies went to lollapalooza this year, and they said the Rage concert had to be stopped three times because it was basically a riot. They said around 20 people went to the hospital : o.

That kid was stupid. Even in mosh pits you still have to have a certain degree of respect and control.

EDIT: Also hardcore dancing is gay. Next time, start a Wall Of Death with the kid in the middle and everybody crush him.

I was getting crushed in RATM's set, it wasn't nice. Near me there was some guy having a panic attack because he was claustrophic. It all got sorted out quite quickly though. Rage were amazing.

I don't think the guy should have been charged with a crime: If that was the case, anyone who moshed would be put in jail.

To be fair he shouldn't have stood in the middle of the pit.

But that still doesn't excuse the hXc tough guy.
