I remember when it was still legal to smoke at indoor music venues. It was a nightmare for anyone sensitive to excessive cigarette smoke. I'd get home from a show and my clothes and hair would reek. My eyes and throat would also be incredibly sore. I'm grateful that venues are smoke free now.
Some people do let their drinking get out of hand. I'd prefer to remember a show the following day, rather than get wasted. I've seen more damage done by people who are drunk than by people who have been smoking weed. Though I can understand that people are sensitive to different things.
As for bands throwing stuff from the stage mid-performance, I must have a target marked on my forehead or something. I've survived a collision with a broken Gibson guitar, sweaty towels, water bottles, etc. I know some fans like to keep this stuff, but a water bottle is still just a water bottle, no matter who was drinking from it.
While we're on the subject of being annoyed at concerts, I have to ask: Does anyone else get all pissed off when Weezer tosses out those beach balls? I mean, I get it. It's a fun concert thing. What ends up happening, though, is some douche bag jumps up for a spike and comes back down and crushes your toes, or someone whacks you in the face going after it. Or, it hits me in the face when I am completely absorbed in some song I've always wanted to hear live.
I'm sorry we have differing opinions. The members having smoked pot is none of my concern unless they're doing it right next to me. Sorry I like to keep my lungs healthy. Just personal preference, I guess.
wowww your really f****** lame. You goto a concert and expect no one to smoke some pot. especially in austin.
People like you are trying to ruin rock music.
