MftSB: Gig singalong


#1

So, hypothetical situation. You are at an arena gig of a band you are reasonably familiar with, but not a mega fan. Let’s say you only got tickets because you’re friends sister was ill and dropped out the last minute.

Anyway, they start playing a song that you don’t know but everyone else seemingly knows every single word to.

Do you:

  • Pretend to sing along with exaggerated mouth movements, so everyone thinks you actually know the words
  • Listen adroitly as to ascertain the lyrics and if possible, join in at the second chorus
  • Not bothered, sway along with mouth firmly closed

went to see Kate Nash Friday and took a bit of pride in standing there stony faced actually


#6

I’d rather be with your friends cause they are much FIT-TAH


#7

Have you seen Glow?


#8

This scenario is precisely why I only go to Sunn o))) arena gigs.


#9

Remember when you were young and had to do your homework before emo gigs because you knew that every word was going to be sung back. I don’t really attend such gigs anymore but it warms my cockles that this stuff is still happening out there somewhere…


#10

absolutely zero chance i’m going to this, sorry m9


#11

Why not? I remember my friend got dumped once, so I went to see my Chemical Romance at the NIA. It was a bit of a novelty going to something you wouldn’t normally pay for.


#12

As someone who has once seen My Chemical Toilet by accident I can confirm there was no fun to be had


#13

In my experience the only lyrics it’s required to memorise are “Midge Ure looks like a milk thief” and “JUUUUUUUNIOR KICKSTART!”


#14

#15

#16

Was just thinking her voice really starts to grate in that too.
