i was v happy that the two women next to me joined in with me
if it's against the rules, and someone complains, then they should either put it out or move elsewhere in the venue where they're not bothering anyone.

Where in America can you still go see a show at a smokey bar? (nb: I haven't seen a show in like 6 years).

Maryland and Washington, D.C. have had bar/restaurant smoking bands since '07-'08, which is awesome, i sometimes forget how shitty the air in clubs used to be or that people in other states still have to put up with it

there were a few Low Life parties that were in the basement of this club that you could smoke in. Even as a smoker the novelty wore of in like 1 second.

Interviewed Craig Finn the other day and we talked a bit about gig etiquette. He said:
There’s a weird thing as well of people who want to be front and centre whether they enjoy it or not. There was a girl in New Orleans. Her boyfriend was having the time of his life and they were front row centre. She was crying, storming off to get a reaction then coming back and crying, then being dramatically dejected and flopping down on the stage. We got between a song and I said: “You’re really distracting me. I would like for you to leave.” And the whole crowd started cheering. Then she said: “It’s his fault!” I was like, “It doesn’t look like it to me. You look like the problem.”
He was the one who dragged her along! Wasn’t it his fault?
He was fine for her to go! They probably got married. That’s my experience with those things. Those people find each other and stick together.
