    Once And Only Once

    There are those who love to go moshing; flailing around to the heavier tempo music, crowd surfing, beating each other up with excuse... I am not one of those folks. In fact, I will avoid these dangerous crowds at all cost. This particular time, I had been oblivious to the fact...

    War Dance

    I didn’t do many years in the mosh pit.  The only reason I survived as long as I did was my mosh-mate Steve did Karate and knew the 7 evil places on the body where one can inflict pain with just one finger, thus keeping a respectful distance between us and the others if it...

    Well I didn't really mean to get into it,

    but it was my 3rd year at warped tour, and I was with some guy that was really hot and my sister which was at the merchant store. So I remeber suiced silence was playing (RIP mitch lucker) and I know how to stay away from the pit but YOLO started to play and I knew right then...

    My crush on Sebastian Bach

    Friday September 15, 2006 Sebastian Bach at The (now destroyed by fire) Palace, Melbourne Australia. I was fine and dandy, got there early. I was the first one inside, in fact, an hour before doors officially opened. When doors were open, I was front and centre, right against...

    I've Been In Many

    And I think they're absolutely terrifying. But I love them. I was in one for a Panic! At The Disco concert (super tame), a My Chem concert (... not so tame), an Escape the Fate concert (SO. MUCH. FUN.) and lots at Warped Tour (from tame to ridiculously ******* scary, depending on...

    Let the Crazy Skinny Chick Out!!

    I'm not the mosh pit type. . .really.  Although I have been in a few.  I don't want to be there, I try to get away but it never happens to work out my way. The P.O.D. experience: I was at a SOAD/POD show in Hershey PA.  They had the classic T-bar set up in front...

    It was funny. Well, after it started.

    When it first began this 6'0 dude rammed straight in to me and I was just thought, what the hell happened? Suddenly I went from the front of the stage to the back of the room. How? I was trying to not fall over from the impact. If I weren't 5'10 and at the weight I am, I'm...

    One time at a Chevelle concert,

    this girl was crowd surfing and she started drifting towards the mosh pitting part and they just completely dropped her and her head was bleeding and I'm pretty sure she had a concussion but she just kept on singing. Three finger salute to you, concussion girl; wherever you...

    Mayhem Fest 2011

    Probably one of the most memorable experiences of my entire life. I went to Mayhem Fest in San Bernido CA. So naturally it was hot, mid summer. I was 5'4 of every mans dream. Small, huge ****, long curled hair.. I was one of the girls walking around in nearly nothing. He was...

    Totally Worth It.

    I graduated top of my class May of 2012 and as a congrats/grad present my cousin bought me a pit pass for Cincy's Trespass America Tour. The only mosh pit I didn't help start was the (unnecessary) pit for Pop Evil. Finally 5FDP came on stage and I was pumped. I was pretty tired...

    Almost Nothing Better.

    I have always been a huge fan of hard rock and metal. I listen to almost all genres but the hard metal sh!t really gets me going. I go to many concerts every year, it's my favorite activity. My favorite concerts though are the death metal shows. Going to see bands like hatebreed...

    A Few Times Actually

    And despite usually hurting like hell and causing a few bruises, it's fun. There's nothing like being covered in other people's sweat, beer, and developing some injuries to make a gig all the better :)
