Well, I’m guessing from the posts here that concert goers in Norway must be sort of the odd crowd out. Or something like that. At least at the shows I’ve been to lately. Attended a split HellacoptersThe Hives couple of weeks ago. It was totally insane in front of the stage. People were really getting into it. But of course, the concerts I’ve been at recently are mostly punk. So they could be drawing a different crowd than the concerts you’ve been to. Well, actually I was at a Beck show early this fall and the mood was defenetely more mellow there. Then again it’s not that easy thrashin around to an acoustic set. As for stage diving at a Pavement gig. Saw them last year, was so great and mindblowing I just kinda stood there and… But I do get a feeling a lot of people enjoy going to the "right" shows. Sort of as a fashion thing or something.
