Tossers. I would never stand for that. At least in Camden tomorrow I'm meeting a mate at The Worlds End and will no doubt run into others.

Stood outside for half an hour this morning, half frozen because some corrugate got jammed under the dryer and caught fire.

Personally, I've never really understood the problem with going to gigs alone. I rarely do anything else these days. That said, there's a bunch of regulars that you see at London gigs, and it's not uncommon for me to bump into someone I know. But even without that, so you get to see the band on your own... where's the problem?

Well, sometimes it's not a problem at all, I spent most of Saturday at Wacken wandering around on my own and not caring. Other times it really bothers me like on Friday, where I had to kill three hours standing around on my own while waiting for Threshold.

I don't mind going to gigs alone, I just make friends with the people around me. If they aren't friendly, I move!

I've always found gigs to be possibly one of the worst environments for meeting new people full stop!

I usually take a book. But I'm fairly certain if I put more effort into it I could find somebody to chat to every time.
There's usually somebody there who's interested in discussing patches and t-shirts, if nothing else.

Fair enough but your not a 25 year old female (well I hope not!!)

Been to festivals alone but always arranged to meet randoms there first so not a scary. Bit different at a gig.

Whenever I have gone to gigs alone some sleezy guy tries to stick his hand up my skirt.
Last time I went to a gig I lost my glasses, shoes and got trampled on and that was when I was with someone.
Imagine if I went alone!!

I understand that going alone is not always bad but I like to share the experience and music with people I know.
Much more fun that way.

The only gig I think I would go alone to is maiden because nothing will keep me from my boys!! :D
]I'm dyslexic and have trouble spelling. Please do not correct me.

I try my best...sometimes for you spelling nazis that is not enough

I sympathise with you there, tonsilitis is a bugger.

The little dinks who hang about on the corner outside my house like they own the place. I usually find that a good blast of Arch Enemy makes them run along home.

Cheeky f*****s actually started knocking on my door, no doubt planning on asking me to turn the music down ... ROFLMAO
