Most people don't move anyway, at heavy shows like this it's different though but almost 90% of the time I'm at a show everyone just stands there looking at the band like their aliens.

But now we won't hear this lovely message from every scene band: "What's up everyone, we're Crown the Crown! Split this fucking place down the middle!!!"

Fine by me.
Maybe if they stop running around and slam dancing they'll realize how terrible some of these bands are.
In theory this is true but I'm sure people will find something else equally stupid to do instead.

In the UK crowd-surfing is "not allowed" at any venue I've ever been to, but it still happens.

Call me old fashioned, but back in my day, we would stay still and then clap at the end of a song to show our appreciation for the band. If the performance was particularly well done, I would occasionally shout a "Whoo!" to express my admiration and respect for the job they were doing.

Fucking this.

I saw Manchester Orchestra at a street fair on Saturday and it was the roughest show I've been to in a long time. It was an array of shitty teens/early 20 somethings who just wanted to be rough with strangers. I saw 2 kids almost get their asses beat by older CLEARLY drunk folks, including one woman and her husband. It pissed me off to no end, but it was essentially a free show, so I feel like it wouldn't have been like that if it were an actual venue.

Or maybe I'm just old.

I went to see Japandroids expecting a big pit (not sure why) and there wasn't one. Wound up being a whole lot of fun because everyone was rocking out in their own positive way without a bunch a sweaty dudes in mesh shorts bumping into you and flailing their arms. That kinda shit can ruin the experience sometimes.

Some of the facebook comments on this subject are hilarious. All the 'bros' are throwing temper tantrums.
Please share.

Actually don't, I want to try to feel happy today.

I know everyone is making a big deal of this, but I went to two days of Warped and Oli was telling everyone to kill each other. And he still got them to do a wall of death, he just never said anything instead he motioned for it.

There are at least two smaller bands regularly doing Walls of Death (ISS and WIM). I see zero difference, no one is being prevented from being in a pit.
