- ENERGY! lotsandlotsandlotsandlots.
- A little bit of "Boo"s and A LOT OF "WHOOOO!!!!!" :)
It's always funny to hear what we have to say about each band, but don't go over the top in being rude... I mean... a band is made up of people, so everybody has to respect everybody on OR off stage.
- People who are there for music and music only.
I speak with purpose! I cannot stand moshing and suddenly crashing into a group of people (usually girls, sadly), and they get all ANGRY at me for pushing. And I am just like... "If you don't want to get pushed around, get the hell out! Why are you just standing here, getting angry at people trying to have fun? Buat kitaorang takde mood je la kan...
What makes a crowd BAD:
- Standing still
Again, I repeat. Why go to a gig if you're just standing there?! Posing? For what? Sini tak ade photoshoot la, sorry.
- Rude crowd; 'Boo!', 'Korang suck!', 'Balik rumah la!'
Please. Bands are people, too. Jangan sangat kejam. Everybody in the music scene is like family. Respect, people... respect...
- Peraba + sesiapa yang kurang ajar
If you want girls, go out and find them. Don't take advantage. And if you nak cari pasal, go find mat rempits at night around KL. Don't find it here in the crowds when we're having fun.
Yes, I am back, with another thought in my head.
I remember Sunburst Festival (March 2008), where one ticket costed RM200, or something like that. I remember going, thinking "OH MY GOD THIS WILL BE KICKASS HEBAT!" only to end up going home thinking "what the hell is wrong with the crowd?!"
Aku tak dapat faham - sampai sekarang! - kenapa semua yang ada pergi kat Sunburst, rela bayar RM250 untuk berdiri2 saja.
Dude, what's the point!?
I don't see the point in people getting all dressed-up and 'lawa' to a gig. It's only for show? And it annoys me a great deal more when they just stand there and look cool. They don't mosh, they don't pogo, they don't sing along... they just... stand around.
When Meet Uncle Hussain performed, NO one danced, except me, my three friends and a group of guys behind us. That was it. They only moshed to Lagu Untukmu, tapi I kena raba pulak. How are we supposed to stand this type of behavior!?
Then for Hujan and Love Me Butch, because it was raining, everybody was holding umbrellas. OH MY GOD korang dah mati ke pe!? I was just like.... "HELOOO what happened to the action? The singing along? The pogo/moshing?" Oh my god, geram!
The same thing happened for the majority of the bands that day kat Sunburst. Memang buat I menyampah je!
Usually seen with a group of similar looking people, wearing the same jeans, same shoes, same type of clothes. Why?
This really frustrates me, every time I see a girl go to a gig clad with make up and dangly earrings, bangles, bracelets, skirts, tight shorts... hello!? Look where you are, missy. You want to get raped? You want to just stand around and look pretty, and then naik darah kalau seorang cuba berkawan dengan you. Come on... Be realistic.
This is a GIG not a shopping mall or a fashion show... -_-
It's not only Sunburst, but even every minor indie, underground gigs jugak. What's the point of going all the way to a gig, and not be part of it? Why go to a gig and stand away from the crowd, looking in from the outside? Where's the fun in that?
Gigs are described in three words: Music, Sweat and Smell.
You go for music, end up sweating, and going home smelling. Setuju?
Gigs are made with efforts from the best, so make the best of the gigs you go to.
