Your friend is the exact kind of concert-goer I HATE at shows!

I did actually go, it's true. I cannot confirm that GAF went, but I did see several thousand supremely drunk 20-something skanky looking white males with White Sox shirts on and cigarettes dangling out of their mouths, so maybe I saw him.

I was too, about 4 rows back (camped out all day pretty much). Everyone around me was really into it, jumping up and down during anything that rocked.

it was definitely a great show and my favourites were the songs from Kid A, which are just awesome live. especially The National Anthem and Idioteque great lights show for those

it was cool that they played The Gloaming

I echo the and sentiments already expressed.

Your friend and people like him should know that I, too, am adept. At punching jerks in the nuts.

They would probably enjoy it and ask for another.

Four hours to show time.

Hey guys, it's dog eat dog at these concert festivals.

And if you were to see the tactics that my friend uses, you all would change your tune. It's hilarious.

Kill or be killed. Only the strong survive.

Do or do not. There is no try.

Yeah, if I've secured my spot near the front and some asshole shoves, weasels or charms his way in front of me, and I cannot for the life of me see over him because I'm 5'2", I'm sure I'd be laughing my ass off.

It IS dog eat dog out in the crowds at a lot of concerts, but that doesn't excuse the fact that the people who push and shove in front of other people aren't assholes.

And there is no see when some freak is rude and pushes in front of me.

Which is why I don't go to festivals or do GA when there are seats available.

I have some experience with this as well. My knee jerk reaction has been known to be quite literal.

I still believe that I have developed the only fair and full-proof method for getting a tall person out of your way at a show.

Once the quarters are tight enough that they can't be sure who's doing it, you begin to touch their ass. When they turn around you keep looking at the stage. Keep doing that a few times and they either move or you've made a new friend.

Its like magic.
