Apart from being laughed at by some wanker, it was rather pleasant. More people should do it.
No need for that.
I went to Truck on my own once. There's no shame in it.
Can I have a biscuit too?
I spoke to two different couples I'd never met before, which is more people than I sometimes speak to at parties.
Can I have several biscuits?
"Because every time I went to a gig on my own, Phil gave me a biscuit! Now that's what I'm talking about. Yeah!"
SICK BURN DUDE
The alternative is to crank up the über indie outsider vibe and read a (yellowing second hand paperback) book instead.
I always stuck to the beer option.
if its a busy gig no one notices or cares...i go cos im sick of convincing friend to see great bands ..I've even bought them tickets before and had them moan about seeing support acts too soooo now i just say screw em and go solo.
there were only 6 other people there, there was a raffle half-way :D It was a quality gig but i was too afraid to talk to him
If i wanted to go to shit gigs i'd be able to find people to go with but dont have much common ground when it comes to music with friends.
Waiting around between is the worst bit but just lock yourself in a toilet cubicle and you're sorted.
Best decision i ever made. The gig was friggin ace! balls to you so called friends! ;)
i've been known to go to festivals on my own
^this can work out better than going in a group, cos you can get your moneys worth in terms of seeing what you've paid for.
If you wanna cock about talking arse whilst drunk on expensive warm weak lager on a muddy patch of grass whilst listening to something meh, then it's cheaper to just take a radio locked onto Radio 1 or 2 and go down to the park for a chat with the local tramps.
and then ditch them when the bands are on, conveniently meeting up with them again for the early hours revelling.
