Going to a concert alone

    I just got back from seeing Hot Hot Heat at a tiny little club here in town. Since none of my friends really share my musical tastes, I made it my solo Saturday night. This isn't the first time I've had to go see a band alone, and it can be an interesting experience. Sometimes I even prefer it -- I'm not spending part of the show hoping my buddy/girl/other person is not hating their life because I dragged them to some concert they are hating.

    My question: anyone else do this, or am I that weird guy standing there nodding his head the entire time?

    Hell no. I've done it a bunch of times.

    If your friends flake out on you, or you just really want to see a show, go see it. Have fun. Make new friends and bum some jay-jay's off 'em at the show. :D

    I've gone to a concert alone, but I didn't leave alone...

    Ah-HA!!! Knew it ... ;D

    Back on topic, I went to the Rush show some weeks back by myself. Then again, I'm a loner so it was probably best. Likely searching for a Genesis ticket for one, as well.

    Whatever floats your boat. Go for it.

    I go to movies along all the time. Like you, Sam, I'm a lone wolf (most of the time).
  6. I had to leave a Filter concert early years ago because the chick I was with wanted to go home. I should have gone by myself and maybe met a woman with my taste in music. ;)
  7. I pretty much go to every concert alone. I usually run into people I know once there. The last time I went to a concert with someone was in 2003.

    I haven't but I would to see Hot Hot Heat. I'm extremely jealous that you got to see them, esp at a small, intimate venue.

    Not just concerts, but sporting events. The last three times I've bought two tickets for anything the other person had to bail so I've learned I can only count on myself. Flying solo is how I roll.

    Plus, no one has my musical tastes so it just makes sense.

    Yup ... most of my friends think my musical tastes are from another planet. Their loss. :D

    I haven't been to a concert since 1991. No time. No money. But the last one I went to I went by myself.
    I enjoyed it.
  12. Yeah...there aren't many people up to seeing a hardcore honkytonk band one night and corpsepainted Norwegians the next night and John Zorn the night after that.
