Wtf are you supposed to do while the next band is preparing to play (usually around 30 min) and you went alone to the show?

Find a friend. Talk to a girl who also went alone. Write lyrics in the bathroom. Play with your phone. Go to the bar and buy some food. Meet one of the band members by sneaking backstage.

Talk to the people around you. You're all there for a common interest. Stop being autistic.

Go for a smoke, piss, drink. Talk amongst the group you’re with or the people at the show if you’re by yourself. If the bands before the headliner are any good go talk to them at the merch table if they’re hanging around it. This is all provided that you’re autism free of course.

Gabriel Perez

Get a drink and start up a conversation with someone else who's alone at the bar.

Colton Wood

Look up the music that the band is going to play in the hand out book that they give you at the entrance

Isaac Reyes

Taking a notepad and doing some writing or drawing between shows is recommended but
in the bathroom
why the bathroom man?

all these "talk to people" recommendations
you know, guys, people who ask questions like op aren't very good at talking to absolute strangers.

Throw down for a blunt circle in the back of the bar.

Toss that blunt in rotation while you guys have a dab rig going around.

I actually meant write lyrics on the walls of the bathrooms. Just really weird ones to see how people will react to it.

Kek, funny thing, I've only went to 5 shows in my life and have never done any of these. These were just ideas I made up in my head.

Landon Rodriguez

Gavin Robinson

Depends what type of music the band's play. If it's upbeat act goofy and try dancing next to a person that doesn't seem to be having a good time. Sad or reflective then talk to no one and smoke a cigarette while staring at nothing.

Easton Lewis

Wait people go to shows by themselves? I've never been cause all my friends have different tastes in music

Lucas Ross

Here's another question:
What are you supposed to do when you're in a band and you're in between songs and your bandmate is tuning or some shit?

Nolan Hernandez

I was just talking to a friend about something similar to this. I fucking love going to shows or otherwise, and more generally, traveling alone. When I'm with friends I focus on them, and there's nothing really wrong with that per-se. However, if I'm by myself I become far more social in terms of interacting with strangers. Last year I went on a road trip to a few cities and even though I did it alone, I met so many people.

I find it odd that people find it weird to do things like this alone. My roommate used to give me shit for going to the movies alone (particularly to see shit he or my other friends would never want to see), even though it's by no means a social event, and now he does it all the time.

Jeremiah Wilson

Doesnt matter if youre alone in a crowd.
Only times I really melt down is an unfamiliar house show. Went to this one around Temple absolutely crossfaded, which would have been fine in a crowd where I wasn't a focal point, but there were literally like three people there and they all knew each other. Was locking up my bike out front, trying to back out, but they insisted I take it inside the house and it was suicide-inducing.
It's never gonna be half as bad for you

You're not describing a Chad. Chads are by definition primarily social animals who don't care much about any of that. Most of them have entry-level or at the most p4k/fantano-core taste in music

I used to get the next piece out and look at it and finger play it to get mentally ready while the percussionists were setting up to do the next piece. I never actually played because that just isn't professional. it ruins the performance

Just chill out, look at your phone, if you're up for it grab a drink and try talking to people around you. Basically what everyone else is saying in the thread.

Went to a show last night, was kind of drunk and ended up hanging out in a VIP area without having bought a special ticket (Had never been to this venue before). Made decent enough small talk with the people around me that it must have looked like I belonged there because no one from the staff ever checked me for a ticket or asked me to leave.

Just b urself :^)

Asher Smith

I like to make sure I get a spot way upfront. Then make sure you're the highest energy person there (easy if you're at some sort of indie show where everyone is doing the too cool indie head bob) so the band notices you. Then go to the merch table and say hey what's up and buy some merch and shoot the shit until the rest of the band shows up and you all smoke weed together.
