Alestorm had one of the craziest crowds of any show I had been to at the time, the place was packed and there were nonstop moshers/crowdsurfers the entire time! I feel like with the more extreme black and even some death shows, people seem too cool to get really into it.
They are definitely the most fun shows there. No one is a pretentious douche (USUALLY) and everyone is there to have a good time and enjoy the music!
Here in Seattle we have Folk/Circle/Jig Dancing in the bar area, it is an insane amount of fun
