concert Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41769503

I'm going to see a classical/jazz symphony near me in a couple hours. They're gonna perform Mozart and some other stuff. I'm pretty nervous, I have only been to one concert in years and it was just some thing put on by college people. Tonight is gonna be an actual auditorium.

Share concert experiences here I guess?

Just wait until everyone else claps after the conductor is done with their arms down and everything.
I've just been to a couple rock concerts and a Babymetal concert. Babymetal was so fun. I was super into it, though my friend didn't want to mosh pit for some reason.

Ages ago as a volunteer for various community activities, I handed out flyers to people about the jazz concert at my local highschool; I got a front-row seat for my efforts.

Felt good man.

From fucking what? Sitting in one spot for over a hour? Better not fuck that up. Make sure your spaghetti is secured in your pockets.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41769513



Really? I kinda though Babymetal was just a meme.


Nice, what kind of jazz?

A couple years back my GF and I were visiting Boston, as I was ogling the architecture of the Boston Opera house this girl comes over and asks us if we wanted tickets for the ballet, turns out she was a prima ballerina and she was going to see the ballet with her BF but he had to cancel and so decided to give us her tickets so they wouldn't go to waste.

Caravan Palace came to Phoenix last year. That was pretty lit.

Back when I lived in Fairbanks, I used to go to classical music concerts with my dad at the university pretty often.

Mac !RevGiOKgRo 41769529

It was like...a multiple person performance, mostly done by the music students.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41769533


yeah but like...was it free jazz, third-stream, hard bop, fusion, etc.?


not familiar with Caravan Palace but that's cool

tbh I wish my parents had taken me to concerts when I was young, I probably wouldn't be so nervous about going to them now...but I guess it's not too different from seeing a movie in theaters, right? except instead of a big screen you're watching a bunch of people...ahh, I feel like physically anxious now lol, I'm leaving in about 40 minutes...


nice, I live near Boston. I don't know many operas besides some of the works of Wagner...

It's almost exactly the same. Most of the time, at least with the ones I went to, the auditorium was dark except for the stage. You've got nothing to worry about.

the last concert i went to was with audrey and cage back in 2014/5.

i need to see more live music, i just hate going alone because i always feel out of place.

don't be nervous tho chewy, you got this. if you're at a loss as to when to clap, wait till the conductor's arms go to his sides.

My favorite early concert experience was probably Amon Amarth/Fear Factory, that's what really got me into metal back in high school. It was so loud, probably the loudest concert I've been to.

My dream concert would probably be Boris, they seem like they'd be fuckin amazing live. Midori would be great too but that's probably impossible.

Reaver 41769612

Sounds very nice, also that hair looks delicious.

I rarely go to concerts but it's often been neat.
Except once i just came back from a thing of such a nondescript nature that it had prevented me from showering for five days, making it a stinky experience. But my grandma insisted i visit anyway since it was neat and she hasn't smelled anything since the nazis shit their pants in 1945 anyway.
Was modern sorta classical, some American dude who was way too impressed with the historic hall, he had older pieces inspired by nukes and strangelove and such and newer 'impressionistic' pieces centering about odd interpretations of classical figures.
...Or something like that anyway, it sounded nice.

Also have been to the Mathäuspassion for easter-ish celebrations too, in the past. Also neat, but was in a church.

Last concert I went to was Goatwhore and The Black Dahlia Murder. I fainted or something during the TBDM set, don't know what happened but one second I was feeling sick and the next second I was in a side hallway with a security guy asking me if I have health problems. Still don't know what happened but I was fine after that.

I'm hopefully going to see Goatwhore and Amon Amarth in May. I keep missing the Crowbar shows so thats upsetting. I also missed Alestorm.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41769734

I'm back!

It went really well, I was so, so anxious that I almost left during the first piece (they opened with a Mozart oboe quartet piece) but I am really glad I stayed the whole time, and it was only about an hour and a half.

It wasn't actually a "real" auditorium and not really a real symphony either, it was a smaller performance in a much smaller area than I had thought it would be.

They played some stuff that I ended up looking up when I got home. One of the things that caught me by surprise was this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP8C2b6qauk this seemed fairly abrasive live, especially coming after Mozart and Gershwin. But it was really exciting and it was during that performance that I started to relax and really enjoy everything.

they also played some classical/bluegrass fusion but I don't even know what bluegrass is, seemed like some kind of folk music?

it was almost all female performers and some of them were qt asians...>tfw no azn classical musician gf

it was a pretty good experience overall, really made my night and even my week. I feel like the next time I have work it won't feel so stressful because I did this which sort of makes the work seem worth it, if that makes sense. like a really good thing in life balancing out a bit of the usual stress...

also I think I was the youngest person there. might go to bed soon after this post.

Babymetal's totally a manufactured sucess meme dream machine, but they're fun and the people at the concert were cool. Nice mix of metalheads, weebs, and hipsters. And a couple kids dressed as band members, that was cute.

DO NOT CLAP between movements.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41770022


lucky!! clipping. was playing in Boston recently and I thought about going but I wasn't sure I would be able to get all the way there without extreme anxiety, and I was also worried that the harsh noise stuff would be painful to hear live lol. but they're one of my favorite current hip-hop acts.


I didn't, nobody did actually. I made sure to wait until other people started clapping.
