Concerts. Good and Bad
By Harley Myhovich on January 4, 2018
The best and worst parts of a concert.
Nothing tops hearing your favourite band live…. unless they suck live. It’s not always up to the band to make the show a spectacular evening. Instead, the patrons of the concert, the bartenders, the merch stand, and many other factors can heavily affect the experience.
Let’s start with the bad. And it’s not just about that guy in front of you that’s way too tall. Personally, my least favourite thing about concerts is people that haven’t been to concerts before. They think everyone is out to destroy their personal space, they spend too much money at the merch table, and they leave early. It’s understandable, we’ve all been in those shoes.
Another thing that needs to leave concerts is merchandise that costs a disgusting amount. Both Jay Z and Kanye West had shirts (that were pretty ugly in my opinion) that cost over $70. At the Linkin Park concert I attended, they had hoodies for $90. And people bought them. I don’t know which is worse. The prices, or the people that are willing to pay them. In this day and age, why aren’t people just going online to order a shirt of that band? Sure the shirt isn’t from the actual event, but at least you aren’t being part of the problem. A big part of the problem is also boyfriends and girlfriends. Stop being so protective of each other ok??
If you’re like me, you probably have a huge grudge on every person working the merch booth. They’re usually in non-famous bands. And they’re bitter about it. Plus they never give away anything for free.
Enough of the bad let’s switch to the good… Actually…. If you go to a concert, you’ll learn more there than what you can read here. The best piece of advice is to make yourself the best part of the concert. Show that confidence. Good job!!!
