So....I went to see Marilyn Manson last night w/ Slayer opening up. I was a little dissapointed because Slayer ended up playing like a 2 hour set, Manson was only on stage for an hour!! Probably the shortest time Ive seen him play in the 10 yrs+ I've been going to his shows. Of course when I get there, Bleeding Through had already played (totally missed them) and I found out while walking in there, I could of brought my camera. Probably a good thing I DIDNT because I was in the pit the entire show. SO now that leads me to my topic. As with everything in life there comes a certain TECHNIQUE. There has to be or things become totally chaotic. Where the F*** did people learn how to mosh around this town?? Better yet, where they learn how to SURF? You don't go around kicking people in the face at random while your in the air. Probably not a good idea, esp when you kick ME in the face, and some 6'5 300+ pound guy that's all muscle happens to witness it. (insert laughing devil face here). So about that time, after being in a pit of 1000's of sweaty, smelly people..I had enough. Time to fight back. SO I had a group of about 20+ guys surrounding me, all of which wanted to fight for prime spot, front row. Place was packed...probably no more than an inch between people. Standing room only, there were NO seats..and concrete floors (gotta love that). Manson opens w/ "If I was your Vampire" and the crowd just absolutely loses themselves. Place is nutts. AS a matter of fact, the place wasn't even that crazy when Slayer was on. We had surfing in about 5 different directions for Manson.
So....the guys are like "ready little missy" and I said "lets go". So here I am, 5'3", sandwiched in between I don't know how many guys, and we all PUSH as hard as we can forward. I'm thinking..."look out, here comes the Navy
" Also..."Mooooooove B**** get out da way" haha. I got pretty close..but had to turn around because it became a heat infested pile of sweaty bodies..which I couldn't take. People were just stepping on everyone, letting other ppl drop to the concrete with no care in the world. Granted, I love Manson..but I'm going to die for the F******!! When it's 90+ in a venue that is outside..a million and one people touching you regardless of wanting to be 'touched'...add the humidity index to that, plus alcohol, pot and whatever else ppl are on=NOT GOOD. lol. I was proud of myself though..I held my own..which the guys said pretty much for a little (meaning short) girl I packed a big punch. So how does everyone here handle mosh pits at shows? What's it like for you? Let's continue this thread for those who have rocked their a$$ off to a show. What show was it? See any blood? I know I did. That poor bastard that kicked me in the face got my 5 in claws in his face. DAMN! Poor F'r!! hah. OH and just my
I honestly think this was probably Manson's LAST concert. If he always played at a venue that never allowed camera's before, and now all of a sudden plays at one that allows it..that's not a good sign!
Let's face it..hes been doing this for quite sometime. I honestly think after seeing him last nite, and only playing for an HOUR..I totally believe he's burnt out!! Honestly I can't blame him one bit if it's over after this tour. So all you "mansonites" that can go see him play..DO IT NOW!! Awesome show...Energy like you wouldn't believe!! I'm still freakin half deaf LOL!!!
