Tips for old people at concerts

I had fun at GidiCulture yesterday.
Basically I love the outdoors and I'm always indoors, so it was fantastic and chill to be out on the beachsand doing nothing.  People-watching.  

Then the main event started
and this hyperactive em-cee and his 500 minions decided to kick me out: in their bid to get the place more, urr, pumping (oh God why do people say turnt turnt turnt) they turned up the volume till iii was vibrating.
I stepped back and back and back till I was out on the street. :D
The end.

If you're old like me, the way to handle these things is:
  • Go early, maybe a few hours early, and leave when it gets noisy i.e. when the main event starts?   
  • Afterwards, definitely bitch and complain (call your friendly radio station, start a letter-writing campaign...o right, they have email now - do that too) so that the concert world will change to accommodate the needs of the sane and still-hearing in society.

These are amazing lines, every time I hear them

Time for bed, little bee, little bee.  
I will always love you more than you love me.  
- Sarah McLachlan, in Little B 

Every breaking wave on the shore 
tells the next one there'll be one more. 
Every gambler knows that 
to lose 
is what you're really there for.  
- Bono/U2, in Every Breaking Wave 
(So...hopelessly tragic.) 

Tell me you love me.  
If you don't, then lie, oh lie to me.  
- Chris Martin/Coldplay, in True Love
(It's the way he sings it that is so moving, searing, touching, haunting.  He really does sound so pitiable.)

Call it magic.
