Five Tips for Concert Etiquette on Your Night Out

The more aged you get, the more expendable revenue you have to spare on merriment stuff, like concerts. Nevertheless, your patience for the chaos of a standing-room-only show also tends to decrease. The best way to hold the crowd about you in check is by teaching by example. So the next time you're close to jumping in the mosh pit at a show, snap back to reality and follow these concert etiquette tips from experts at our apartments for rent in Fort Myers, FL.

Arrive early

This should be a no-brainer for everyone who's ever attended a concert before. No matter how premature the doors open, strive to arrive 30 minutes before that if you desire a good spot in the enclosure. Parking will take you longer than anticipated, and there will already be a line by the time you get to the forum. If you don't care about where you stand, arriving late might work nicely, especially if you take public transportation and won't require a parking spot. You might be able to breeze right through the gates if the public has already cleared.

Dress like an adult

No one is satisfied after walking 20 minutes from your parking place in the freezing cold sporting a tank and miniskirt, and waiting in line for 30 minutes modeling pumps. That includes you, the sap who dressed for the club, and your friends, who've now been hearing you whine for 50 minutes. They've got almost three hours to go. Now those kinds of shenanigans would pass if you were still 15, but you're a grown-up now—time to dress like one. If you must get dressed up for a performance, make sure your ensemble is weather-appropriate (there's always a coat check) and your shoes are comfy.

Attention tall people: don't be that guy

Tall people can only slouch so much if this is a grown-up, sit-down type of show. At a standing-room-only concert, however, tall people have some wiggle room. Of course, they can't do anything about their stature, but they should try to remain out of the immediate line of sight of any vertically-challenged concertgoers standing right behind them. That doesn't imply you have to squat or slump if you're tall, don't stop right in front of somebody who's markedly shorter than you.

Dance considerately

The most enjoyable part of attending a concert-dancing like no one is observing. But somebody is observing. Many people are observing. Odds are they're jamming too, so there's no reason to be self-conscious. You should be self-aware, though. No one appreciates enduring an elbow to the face when their favorite melody begins to crescendo. Make sure you hold all your dancing parts within a sensible radius of your body.

Snapchat sparingly

There's no point in going to a show if you're not going to initiate some FOMO in your buddies. So it's not like you must to keep your phone tucked in your purse the whole night, but you should bust it out sparingly. Everyone standing behind you is there to witness the show, not to see whatever creative string of emojis you've developed for a Snapchat story. So yes, you can phone your best friend during your song. Yes, you can Instagram a coarse close-up of your favorite vocalist. But don't keep your phone out for the show, and don't post more than one time while you're there.
