They say you're not supposed to, but its very rarely enforced from what I've experienced.

I mean, it's hardly the end of the world, but this is kind of stupid.

I've always thought the public would be shocked by the environment at a violent hardcore/metal/whatever show if some news show filmed and discussed it. There's been some reporting about FSU but that's a distinct story

Flogging Molly has some of the most insane shows ever, there should have been at least double that in the pit. But yeah, this is stupid.

In Dublin, it's actually mandatory to mosh for Flogging Molly. They raise your taxes otherwise.
