to each their own i guess. The way I read it, it sounded like you got there alot earlier than that. But yeah, i walked into the Refused show tonight at the end of shitty, shitty Cerebral Ballzy, and walked right up to the front...maybe 3 rows of people back from the barricade. i never have much of a problem. Portishead was tough last year, thats all i can remember. My feet would fall off if I did what you did. Guess i'm old haha.
