    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...

    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...

    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 :)

    Many More Moshing Moments

    In no particular order, there are other bands I went to see in concert and got completely swept up in "the fever and the only answer was more cowbell." Into the pit I went. Lollapalooza '93 -NJ-  Alice in Chains, Primus Lollapalooza '96 -WA- LIVE, Metallica NIN...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    One time at a Chevelle concert,
