Re: ~* Camden 2012 *~
I went to both nights, lawn the first night and seats the next. I was in 202 row H for N2 and could not have been happier. I went with my gf and friends the first night and just my gf on the second night.
I have always had crazy/weird experiences on the lawn in camden but this year was total shit. The people in the lawn are always drunk college/high school douche bags that ruin everything for everyone. I have always had trouble with drunk guys but on this very night it was drunk chicks, either squeezing in right in front of my group and stopping unaware of their surroundings or just recklessly meandering through us with their always large crowd of other drunk chicks just accompanying their other drunk friends to the bathroom. This shit needs to stop and so does the always present group of assholes that throw glow sticks. STOP THROWING GLOW STICKS!!! I have never been around so many entitled, unpleasant fuck heads in my life. I do not understand why people are not polite or why they are not aware of manners. O and an added bonus, they ladies standing next to us were older, rather chill, seemed like they have been fans for awhile, but they were also douche bags. I tried to start a friendly conversation, as I always do (I like talking to people and when I say like I mean LOVE), and they were extremely short and stuck up. So, as you can see, I have drunk girls constantly whirling by with their posses, drunk assholes to the right of me and stuck up assholes to the left and my favorite band playing as this goes on. It was bittersweet.
So the second night comes and it goes without a hitch. My gf and I get to camden, no problems. We were only worried about one thing, old people sitting around us. We wanted to burn and thought if old people were around us, they would care or tell us to stop. We get to our seats and were amazed by the view of the stage, perfect seats. We wait around and the head and the heart come on, they were very good btw. So its halfway through their set and an ugly couple come sit in front of us, about my age 21-22. They are drinking, the girl a mixed drink, the guy a beer of some shitty variety. They stay there for about 15 min, get up and go. They return around when THATH stopped playing. Now she has no drink in hand and he still has a beer. They are talking and then get into an argument. "WHY DO YOU HAVE TO DO DRUGS TO HAVE FUN!", she says between tears as he tries to hold back a smile, turning into a smirk. She continues to cry and then says "I want to leave. I want to leave now." They get up, leave and never came back. Thank you for the perfect view you crazy, hypocrite lady, thank you very much. I had one of the best laughs of my life too, so thank you for that as well. To the guy, break up with that crazy, hypocrite bitch because holy shit, she was insane. Overall, the second night had its gems, just like the first but i will never forget this show. It was only my 7th in all but i was elated. THANK YOU DMB!!
