Really really want to get back to live music but I’m not on side with this at all.
So you HAVE to have a car. Doesn’t seem to be an area for no cars.
You get given a square for your car but you pay per number of people in the car.
There is a tory option where if you have money you get one of the first 3 rows.
Here is example for lightning seeds (??) gig.
seems absolutely incredibly bad
how do i have gig beers and go for a wee?
I’d go and see Gary Numan for the novelty value
other than that, the prospect of a drive-in gig sounds fucking appalling tbh
RIC OCASEK: Hey you know I’ve never been in a situation where there are more cars in the audience than playing onstage alongside me, Ric Ocasek
AUDIENCE MEMBER: (muffled voice)
RIC OCASEK: What?
AUDIENCE MEMBER winds window down
AUDIENCE MEMBER: Aren’t you dead?
RIC OCASEK: Whoa, low blow. I’d ask who the hell would drive you home, but this is a drive-in gig
RIC OCASEK: I’M WASTED ON YOU FUCKS
From safety POV it makes sense maybe. I guess the point is that it’s only going to exist for artists whose gig-going audience are primarily there for music, are older and less concerned about the social aspect.
However how is everyone going to hear and see easily? Windows will all be wound down do part of the safety aspect of cars is gone. And then unless you have a convertible no one in the back is going to get much of a view.
Imagine Bon Iver coming onstage in front of a sold out carpark
we’ve gigged in cars
danced on tables
hotels, trains and ships that sail
You get out the car and stay in your square.
This is why I don’t understand why people without cars can’t just get in safely and stay in a square?
Because the minute people get pished the idea of them saying within the square is going to go out the window entirely.
They’re maybe stupidly thinking if there’s at least one sober person driving they’ve more chance of reasoning with people/them sticking to the rules
I pity the poor cunts working as stewards at these as it’s going to be carnage
I actually can’t stop giggling at this
Writing from a country that’s had bars and restaurants open for almost a month now with “strict rules” in place - people do not obey strict rules.
I hope someone turns up in a cardboard car like people do when they go through drive thrus, just cause they’re so desperate to see Tony Hadley
KEVIN SHIELDS: Here’s a classic from our You Made Me Realise EP, which we will start from midway into the chorus for some reason
BILINDA BUTCHER: Get in the car and drive it all over me
(the audience starts revving)
COLM O’CIOSOIG: doooooohhhh I knew this was a bad idea
DEB GOOGE: Why are they this suggestible
You reckon they’ll sell/allow booze?
Oh yeah that is totally shit and pointless then!
Toilet situation was the first thing that sprang to mind. I’d need to get a chemical toilet that attaches to the car boot so I could have a quick post-local support poo.
