Story time though for a moment. A couple years ago my mom and I went to go see Social Distortion. ( If any arizonians read this it was at the Marquee Theater ) Being a little younger I thought the fans would be mellow like my family. Yeah I learned the hard way to not go anywhere near the front row. A tall drunk woman stood right in front of us. Then punched me right in the nose. Now, I'm quite tiny, and being a nerd have never been in a fight. I'm just barely 104 pounds. So I remember just being in shock once my face was going "ow my face" and seeing the blood. Mom just went into mama bear mode and grabbed me, pulling me through a mosh pit just to get to the bathroom. Our joy for the concert fizzled so we left very early.
Now cut to last night. Same band because we wanted to make up for that disaster. Same crappy little theater. There are no chairs. Everybody is crammed in there like sardines. There is a ton of beer drinking. And a lot of pot smokers. We tried to find a spot more in the back. But that didn't exactly help. Once again, right before the show starts. A very tall person stands RIGHT in front of me. Like I didn't even exist. So instead of seeing the show I got to see a fat back and some jerk taking pictures with his drunk girlfriend. I'm not very violent in real life. But that guy was lucky there was a trash can in front of me or I would've just kicked him in the balls with my boots. -_-
It's now morning where I'm at. And I think all the foul air at that place freaked my lungs out. I don't go out much so I don't have a ton of exposure to pot air. God I hate the stuff. Who goes to a concert just to get high or drunk? I know, some might say "Oh I can do it no problem" Yeah but not everybody is sane when they're inebriated. It's either all the smoke there or just some people were sick in the theater and it jumped to me.
So yeah. As much as I enjoy Social Distortions music I decided to not try anymore with them. Not if they're continuing to use that crappy theater. Makes me wish Rammstein weren't going on break. I want to see them again to boost my "concerts are awesome" mentality. I feel honestly sad over all this crap.
Also their opening band sucked. Unless you're Rob Halford, don't do that stupid screaming crap in your music.
