The "unwritten" rules of concerts

Don't wear the t-shirt:
Personally I don't care what you wear, but sometimes people will laugh at you if you are wearing a T-shirt of the band you are going to see. Someone told me that people wearing the bands T-shirt at their concerts are only trying to be cool, and trying to be cool is not cool When you wear your band merch in public that is to promote and support your favorite artists, and that is okay, but just showing up at the concert you have already shown your support. It's like two positives give a negative... It's the same as if a band member is wearing his own band merch (which personally don't mind either, but it is also frowned upon).

Don't jump or dance out of control:
No one wants to be stepped on or hit at, even though you don't do it on purpose. Be aware of your surroundings. You are probably hundreds or even thousands of kids crammed together in a small place, so you just imagine what happens to the people standing next to you if you start dancing like there is tomorrow. If the bands says jump, you bounce! Otherwise the person behind you will feel just how many burgers contributed to you weight... If the band says dance, you could always just put your hands in the air and move around a bit.Headbanging? Sure, why not? BUT if you are wearing a crazy hair-do like a mow-hawk, just be extra careful. Yes, I have tried to stand behind a girl who had the biggest mow-hawk ever, and who were headbanging like she wanted to shake her brain out. Let's just say that her hair went places in my face, that I didn't want it to go...

Don't push, but don't panic:
Pushing happens, it can't be helped, so don't panic if you sometimes feel like you are losing you balance. People will catch you. But to those fuckers who think that they can show up 10 minutes before the concert starts and push their way to the front, you need to leave! Nobody likes you. How would you feel if you have been holding a spot for 6 hours straight and some mother fucker comes and pushes you out of you spot only because he's bigger than you, and you can't do anything about it? No! Stay in the back, you are not welcome!

Don't talk:
Sure it's okay to talk between songs when the band is getting some water or talking to each other, but don't fucking talk during a song. People haven't payed to hear you blabbering with you friend, so shut up.

Be considerate:
If you are a tall guy or girl and you see a smaller person behind you, please offer them your spot. The person behind you will have their night ruined, just because you ate your carrots as a child. It's not your fault, but try to put yourself in that persons perspective. Who knows, maybe you'll end up with a new friend.

If you are up front, don't hold an umbrella or sign:
People behind you can't see shit, so don't do it.

Don't smoke:
I know that for some of you, this can be hard - especially if you wanna keep you spot at the same time, but come on. There are people around you who don't smoke, or are maybe even allergic to smoke, so be considerate and light you cigarette an other place.

Don't pee:
Of cause you can go to the toilets during a concert, but I'm talking about those nasty ones who pisses in their cans and bottles. This happened to me at a danish rap concert. Three guys (clearly stoned all three of them) were drinking beer and peeing in their cans instead of going to the toilets. They put the cans on the ground, and when people tried to walk past them, naturally the cans tipped over. Yes, pee on the ground we are standing on. That is just disgusting guys!

Sing along:
And if you don't know the lyrics, at least just pretend. It can be such a bad experience if you are standing next to someone who is just 'too cool to like this band'.

Keep your voice down:
Don't sing too high. People have come to listen to the band, not you. Sing along in a moderate volume. When the microphone is turned to the audience you can scream your lungs out, if that is what you want, but otherwise keep it leveled.

Don't touch my butt:
There is nothing worse than suddenly being felled up by some pervert, and you can't even see who it is. Just because I'm a girl and we are standing close you can't just grind up against my ass. This happened to me at my very first concert, and it just made me so angry. I didn't feel violated, but some might, so don't do it. If you think that you are flirting, stop! Just stop your self. Talk to the person instead.

Don't duck for crowd-surfers:
Crowd-surfing is a very important part of any concert. Everyone wants to be able to reach the band member who is crow-surfing, that's for sure. But when someone from the audience is doing it, they need to get out of the crowd. Crowd-surfing is used to get people who are getting sick out of the crowd in a fast way. Security guards usually encourage this. So if you realize that someone is suddenly on top of your head, don't duck, but help the person out. If you don't help there might be a risk for that person to fall and you don't want that. The person could be on the verge of vomiting, have claustrophobia, have a panic attack and so on. So don't slow the process.

You move from your spot, it's not your spot anymore:
If you leave your spot, you can't expect to get it back.

Some people think that by drinking alcohol before a concert give you a better experience, and that's fine. But stay hydrated. Drink water, so you won't pass out.

Don't film the whole concert:
If you want to, I won't stop you, but for your own sake, I advise you to put down the camera and enjoy the concert. You don't wanna come home and realize that you missed the whole concert, because you had to focus on your camera. I get that you might want some pictures and some videos, and that's fine, I do that as well, but don't record every number. Enjoy the magic that is happening in front of you, and that you have payed good money to see.

These are just some of the many "unwritten" rules that I think needed to be cleared out. So if you read this think about it the next time you go to a concert, so you can avoid being 'that guy'.
If you have any good/bad/funny concert memories, I would like to hear about them. Please leave a comment :)

First of all, yes I have been missing in action since November. I've had some personal stuff going on, and even though it is not all solved out, I am on the right track. More about that later, I just thought that if you have been wondering where I've been, I should let you know.

I left you with a promise of telling you about the awesome concert with Mindless Self Indulgence and The Red Paintings. I went to see them in November (well, yeah, that was what my last post was about), and I promised you details, pictures and videos. And I have not forgotten. So therefore I will now give it to you who have been waiting.

I have never taken such bad photos at a concert, maybe it was because that every time I tried to snap one, people were pushing or waving their mow-hawk in my face. More about that later. But here are the best of the worst:

The band warm up band was The Red Paintings. Now, I had never heard of them before I went to this concert, but I must say that they were a pleasant surprise. 

Here is their lead singer with his R2D2 back pack on and his samurai head piece.The whole band had that old Chinese/geisha wipe over them, which went well with their choices of instruments. There were rocking out on violins and cellos among the usual guitar, bass and drums. In the back ground you can see a small wheel. There was a hamster in that, and to be honest I could never figure out if it was real. I don't think it was, but it really looked like could be (here it needs to be mentioned that the band is actually very active in there support of animal rights).

Something the band also puts a lot of  effort in is to support local painters. For each of their shows they have local painters come and paint during their set. These two Danish girls were dressing in alien costumes while painting this amazing picture of the stage.

The finished product. All of the paintings are displayed on the band's website at

The bassist was this really cool and chill girl. She managed to get eye contact with the bunch of us who were standing in front of us several times and still keep her face plain. I have done something like that in some plays I have been in during the past years. It's hard, but it's fun when you can concentrate, because the person you are looking at gets somewhat uncomfortable.

The last song of their set was a cover of Mad World, which is a very slow song, and very heartbreaking song. The band managed to get into the core of the lyrics making it almost psychedelic. It was raw and now I can't stop singing it like they did that night. The song can't be found on Youtube in other than live performances or acoustic versions, which almost makes the whole experience so much more precious.

Then it was time for Mindless Self Indulgence. I have been a fan of that band for such a long time now, and Lyn-Z is one of my main role models, so when she stepped out on that stage it was so surreal for me. 

On stage there were (of cause) a lot of goofing around. Jimmy stopped the show after a song or two to tell the rules of the concert. It was hilarious. He said something like: "You can look at Steve and you can touch him. Go on touch his but. You can look at Lindsey, but you cannot touch her. Fingers off. You can't look at Kitty, and you can't touch her. Stop looking, you filthy animals. And you can look at me, all you want, while I touch my self". Let's just say that his hand went somewhere private after that. I am sure that this same thing has happened at every other show on the tour, but that didn't make it less funny. 

I don't know if it's anything to brag about, but yes, I got to touch Jimmy's sweaty hand and his sweaty ass. The ass thing was not in purpose, I swear! My hand was sort of just pushed toward his butt... What can I say :)

Now, I would have uploaded some videos here, but since I'm not a genius at computers, you have to manage without. Maybe someday I'll figure out how to upload my videos on here...

Hope you've had a great December with the Holidays and the New Years. See you soon hopefully :)

Mindless Self Indulgence tonight

I just realized that I haven't told you this yet.
In about an hour I'm leaving to go to a Mindless Self Indulgence concert in Copenhagen!!!
I'm excited, yes!

So, no one actually wanted to go with me when I said that 'oh, Mindless Self Indulgence is coming to Denmark' *wink, wink*, so I'm dragging my best friend with me even though she doesn't know the band :)

I'll see you tomorrow with all the dirty details about the concert ;)

Dúné live streaming tonight!

The Danish band Dúné is streaming their acoustic concert tonight at 8PM UTC + 1. For people who don't know this band it would be worth checking them out, I'm just saying. You can put them in the genre of rock and electric, so they are definitely up to date with their sound. With this new electronic genre everywhere, you can't help but enjoy some acoustic tracks once in a while, am I right? Though I'm not saying I don't like it, just look at the band Veto, I love their sound!!!
But if you want to watch the concert, use this link:

I actually intended to buy tickets to this show, but they were sold out pretty quickly, so I'm gonna watch it from my bedroom in stead :)

I hope you are all having a great weekend

Just spend some money that I don't have (just kidding, but it's money that I should be using on christmas presents). I went to this cool music shop in Copenhagen, and the reason why it's cool is because they don't sell music like Justin Bieber or One Direction. No, no, no. This is all music from old school rock to pop rock artists.

The first of the three albums is Panic! At The Disco's new album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die.

I listened to is five times in one day, just going too and from school. My favorite tracks are This Is Gospel, Casual Affair, Nicotine, and Miss Jackson. They just have something about them that make that album special.

The two next albums that I got are both from The Floor Is Made of Lava. A while back I went to their goodbye concert (check out the review here: ) and since then I've loved their music.These are the albums: Hwl at the Moon, and Kids and Drunks.

I haven'r had much chance to listen to these yet, but I will. Until then you may settle with this.

What album have you been listening to the most the past month? Please leave a comment in the section below.
