then absolutely nothing.
Otherwise, banal thoughts about the venue and the people inside, occasionally worry about how I look that day, think about food, or maybe look forward to going to bed
And sometimes it's a good opportunity for introspection and thinking about any old stuff, can be triggered by what's happening in the music.
Or sometimes the performance is really good and that gets all the attention.
When I listen to a really good song I start nodding my head, like I'm saying "Yes!" to every beat.
"Yes! Yes! Yes! This rocks!" And then sometimes I switch it up, like- "No! No! No! Don't stop a-rockin'!"
"I wonder what time I'll be in bed"
"why is it against the law for nice drinks to be on sale at places where bands play?"
mainly when will be the best time to go for a piss
tfw you go for a piss and can hear your fav song of the band playing through the walls
the victimless crime
"darn, i got the last round and have finished whilst everyone else still has half left. should i squeeze another #CheekyPint in and slot back into the next round?"
Three pints in a triangle
- how fit the band are
- how drunk i am
- who i'm with
- is there a silly dance or not?
- if i'm seated or not
If there are women in the band I just think about whether I'd bang them
even if at the moment i am absolutely fucking loving the current track they are playing
surely they wouldn't play seasons (waiting on you) twice....
think about everything but the music. related to underlying issues i think. have more or less stopped going to gigs cos i can't enjoy them
First couple of songs: this is ace I love live music why don't I go to more gigs this is brilliant
Rest of the set: I am bored
Rrrrrai bin wa'in on yoo-oo-ooo
but its mostly getting annoyed at tall people at the front not dancing. I mean fuck you.
Ambient/classical music live really helps me think about life and that. I find it's pretty good for clarifying thoughts and ideas.
"God, I wish I was watching someone I actually like..."
"I guess I'll come along if you're all going"
"Seriously, don't come and be a buzzkill if you're not into it"
"No no, that's fine" "I'll come, I'll come"
just like the best sex and alcohol -- everything else melts away
Every gig you go to, you're just thinking about Frank Sidebottom.
No need to be ashamed.
with most stuff I see in small venues/pubs I'll be thinking about how they wrote it/what it sounds like/what gear and pedals they are using/who the best player in the band is/who the shittiest is. If it's really blowing my mind then I'm just happy and maybe thinking "woah how did they even write this?" but usually just feeling elated.
If it's a band I really love I'm usually just really happy. If it's a band I love and they're shit I'll try and convince myself to like it but probably analysing why I don't like it. I can't think of a recent example but I had a lot of friends go see Suicide recently at the Barbican and almost all of them thought it was awful but were huge suicide fans so they were able to really give detailed descriptions of what it was like and the few moments they enjoyed.
If you are thinking about things too much you know that you really arnt enjoying it all that much. No matter how much you try to convince yourself otherwise.
What time do I need to be in tomorrow?
who inevitably turn up to the gigs I attend.
you love each other so much that you can't stop shoving your tongues down each other’s throats, but please leave the show and get a room."
Only at busy gig's though
