I Have Been In a Mosh Pit

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 215 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 :)

    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...

    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...

    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...
