The 9 Types Of People That You See At A Classic Rock Concert

Which one are you?

While some classic rock bands, like Mötley Crüe, aren't touring anymore, many classic rock bands from the 70s and 80s are. Still putting on shows for their fans, it can be fun to see just who their "fans" are at the concert.

1. The die hard fans

Giphy

These are the older people who were in their teens and twenties when this artist/band was in its prime. These are the people who are jamming to both the classics and the forgotten songs. Think of the artists that you enjoy now and go to their concerts now. Just imagine being able to do it in 30 years when music inevitably goes downhill and you must relive your glory days. LIVE IT UP.

2. The one person who ends up videoing the whole thing

Giphy

I just don't get it. Like sure, you'll be able to watch it again and again, but in the midst of videoing it, you miss being able to watch and enjoy the real thing. Live in the moment!

3. The kids who are obviously being dragged there by their parents

Giphy

They aren't necessarily enjoying themselves now, whining about it being too loud and falling asleep. However, these parents are doing it right (assuming safe ear protection). These kids will most likely remember this and hopefully be influenced by their parents' awesome music choices.

4. The people who are just there for a good time

Giphy

These people are the ones that are questionably (or not so questionably) drunk. However, they seem to be having the time of their lives. Do they even know or care who the band/artist is? Maybe... maybe not.

5. The couple that make it obvious that, yes, they are a couple

Giphy

Whether it be dancing heavily to every love ballad there is or simply being attached at all times, these are the people that you are simultaneously jealous of and annoyed by.

6. The people that are enjoying themselves so much and don't care who sees

Giphy

It's their favorite band it's their favorite song and yes they will dance and yes they will sing, and yes, they could not care less about who sees because this is their moment and they are in pure bliss. These are the people to be envious of. These are the people whose lives have changed at that moment, even if just slightly.

7. The ones posting the whole show on social media

Giphy

In this day and age, this is pretty common. Who knows if they really like the band/artist, or just want people to see them having a 'fun' time. Most of the show can be seen via Snapchat or Instagram. If you're friends with this person, you probably get to see a lot of free concerts, so that's cool.

8. The ones supporting their loved one

Giphy

These people themselves may not love the band/artist, but they love someone who does. The music may not do anything for them personally, but watching their loved one enjoy it so much makes them enjoy it.

9. The kids who were raised right

Giphy

These are the kids that were raised on this music and are finally old enough to voluntarily go to a classic rock concert. Whether it be nostalgia, pure enjoyment, or both, these are 20 somethings that actually know the songs and are the next generation of true fans.

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks

views

Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History

www.nba.com

Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up

This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)

www.nba.com

If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
