Memo to Bluesfest PatronsWed Jul 4, 2007 Miss Vicky
Shut the *&@% up!
The people around you do not need to know that your department is now called "community life" or that you can't believe you saw so-and-so in the crowd. We don't need to know about your adventures in the beer line. Your fellow concert-goers have paid good money to hear the performer; no matter how far back in the venue space they are, they do not need to be treated to your explanation of why the sound is not quite synched up with the image on the screen. We all understand the principles of physics, thank you very much, and we're there to hear the PERFORMER!
Oh, and when the performer declines an encore after you've spent the entire concert chatting? You hardly need to go on and on about how rude it is.
Van was great, by the way. What we were able to hear, that is.
