if no longer intend to see the bands live or intereact with people with similar tastes. EVER.
can you call yourself a supporter of a football club if you don't go the games or anything question. Bat it isn't! For that question I think you maybe call yourself a 'fan' instead of a supporter
you know what I mean...yes supporter makes sense..but supporting a diy scene makes all fans active supporters doesn't it? As in you have to contribute by attending shows to keep some things alive?
but people who buy new records are supporters too really? Talking to people about the music or going to see them live doesn't have to come into it. Maybe you're a fan if you just download everything without paying for it or something
The original post was inspired by a discussion with someone. Someone said you can’t call yourself a fan if you don't go to the shows to support the bands..but at the same time you are lame if you don’t got to gigs and get hammered…but to me that defeats the purpose of seeing a band.
feel free to enjoy der musik any way you want that's what i'm sayin. Sho it's such a borin' end to the convo that I have to be all typin' in a ridicluss accent but whatcho gon do
