Yeah well im always there so meh ... Hahah I know what you mean Luke can testify the state I was in at the Dimanthian gig, after a all night drinking bender with Qais... I did'nt leave the stool I sat on all night.
Maybe this is a long shot, but if there was to be another Black Metal show and you were worried about unsavoury characters, couldn't you look to hire a big fuck-off doorman who could deter anyone from being a cunt?
I'm no martial arts instructor. That guy was a total nob so I didn't do it in the end.
Security staff would have to be SIA trained, not just "some muscley bloke", so they'd be quite pricey. It'd be sad if it had to come to that anyway, as I'd hope that people would have enough loyalty and respect for the night to a) not fuck about in the first place, and b) keep an eye on the occasional arsehole.
Anyway, I was just referring to the total pwnage of the guy on the first night ;D
I don't think that would be a good idea. Ive been to a dimebag tribute drinking session everynight night on the eve of his death and i seriously don't think the majority of the reanimator crowd could put up with all 9 (not including live or best of) PanterA albums and the amount of binge drinking and yobish behaviour in one night. They would probably give up after 4largers, moan drink ale then ask to listen to Amon Armoth, Wintersun or something as equally queer.
