Re: “Local audiences need a lesson in etiquette

I had similar experience, but it wasn't people being to loud. It was at a Punk Rock show. This was in New Olreans at a community space (That no longer exist) called the Abstract. The band playing was a great band from DC called BORN AGAINST and there were some meat head jocks in the crowd , elbowing people and punching people as the crowd was slam dancing. and yes slam dancing or Skanking can be rough and sometimes people get hurt. but most of the shows I've gone to in my 30 years in the scene, (im 40). people walk out unscathed and have had and incredible experience. but anyway these meatheads were hitting people and the singer of BORN AGAINST, Sam Mcphetters, told the guys to stop or they will play lounge music and he will read from the book, The Wizard of Oz. Well, the meat heads didn't stop and in the middle of their song Mary and Child, they broke into a light lounge jazz song in C minor and Sam began to read the Wizard of Oz, this went on for a good 10 minutes and the finally the meat heads walked out the door and in that moment, he threw the book into the air and they went right back into the song, Mary and Child, right where they left off, in the middle of the second verse and the show went off without an incident. One of the best things I have ever gotten to experience in my life. Ahh it was great to be in my twenties in the 90's!!!
