CAN PEOPLE QUIT BEING CUNTS AT GIGS? (Please)
As im sure you have all heard by now, the recent Placebo show has been in the headlines for roughly 8 hours. From video and eye witness accounts making their way through social media outlets; it appears that Brian Molko (frontman) stopped the gig mid-set to ask two gig goers in question to politely fuck off.
Hours after the initial bombardment of articles, it now seems that the two blokes who were called out having a punch on might have just been looking out for the people around them. Either way don't take violence into your own hands.
There are security and many other means of getting rude, belligerent and those stupid hardcore dancers out of the pit. I suppose punching on it just one of them. Members of the Behind The Scene Community were also in support of ending this behavior.
"It really doesn't help when people punch each other or bump into each other- it is just nonsense.." -Brian Molko
