At every single concert -- regardless of genre or the band playing -- there is at least ONE asshole who nearly ruins the experience.
Shall I provide proof?

Nearly everything about this show was perfect. I was there with two of my really good friends at the time. I was super close to the stage. The band sang my favorite songs. But then there was that one guy that was SO drunk that he wouldn't shut up about his knowledge of the band.
"He wrote this one when he was dating Charlize Theron!!" -- Thank you, but I knew that.
Then he spilled his beer on me. SPILLED HIS BEER! Ugh! But I just brushed it off.

Another good show. Blink-182 has such charisma and energy and I was super into the song Dammit (I think) when the idiot boys behind us decided it'd be hilarious to push us -- physically push us -- SEVERAL TIMES! Completely took me out of the moment and made me feel very angry.
3. Third Eye Blind - Redux, February, 2012
So that brings us to now. And this pissed me off more than anything could possibly piss me off. My friend and I went to a show at William & Mary, a college about three hours from here.

Well, these two idiot guys were desperate to obtain wristbands any way they could. So they were going around to different people in seats and asking if the people had wristbands. Then they came up behind us. They didn't say "excuse me" and they didn't apologize. They just PUSHED US INTO THE SEATS IN FRONT OF US. And spilled my soda -- which was sitting in the floor -- in the process. My soda ended up all over my friend's coat and new t-shirt that he'd just bought. Plus, that damn soda was $3 and I was thirsty.
I ended up taking the very last of the soda and throwing it on one of the dude's legs. My friend told him to "get out of the fucking way." He looked very confused as to why we were angry. REALLY?!
This all happened in the middle of a drum solo, so I just tried to focus on the beat and, after, I let out all my frustration by cheering for the band.
People need to learn how to be respectful. And also, they should learn not to mess with me when I'm listening to one of my favorite bands. kthanksbye
PS. I gotta go to more concerts. Assholes or not, it's a rad time.
