Wes Memphis that sounds like everytime I've gone to a free Lynard Skynard show...I guess I'm just used to it, because I keep going to those things, but I know what you're saying.
I'm in the same boat with Eric on the indie rock shows... as a general rule the shittier they are the more popular they seem to be which is the worse thing...why are people so fucking stupid? God too many shitty bands I can't even name one off the top of my head....fuck I guess Enkindels...dude I'd hang out with them cuz they're local, but goddamn their music and fans really irritate me...mostly because they're local! It's a fucking conundrum of pure shit....it's a human centipede with no beginning or end, just a constant regurgitation of crap...that should be the premise for Human Centipede III.
Also I hear ya about the shut up, sing along, or get out when it comes to acoustic shows...but I'm about to start doing my acoustic act around town soon, I've listened to so many old John Lee Hooker records, where there's just a din of chatter and clanking glasses in the background, that I don't think it would even matter to me. One of my favorite solo performers here who only plays maybe once a year plays like a 3 hour set....so people are always talking through it, but it's amazing how it seems to help with the ambiance. I prefer quiet, but if people talk through my set it doesn't bother me in a way I think I'll like it.
