I've had the idea for this post swirling in my head for a while ... and after last weekend's show at Gruene, I had to share (lucky you) . When I'm at shows, I enjoy categorizing groups of fans that I see in the crowd. For example:

The "crazy drunk stalker on tour" fans. They can be identified by their neon colored hats, matching t-shirts, and glow stick necklaces. HA!

The "young, cute, slutty, drunk college girl" fans. I don't think I have to offer a further explanation. We've all seen them.

The "I'm so cool because I got to hang out with Charlie" fans. (That was a shout out to someone. I can't remember who.) They are also sometimes the same as the "CHARLIE RULES THE EARTH" fans. I'm cracking myself up but getting off track here. OK, back to the list.

The "always yelling something dumb" fans. This is usually a drunk guy, yelling something that he thinks is hilarious that might have actually been funny the first one or two times ... but it's really getting old after the 50th time. (Not the same as the "Freebird" fan. This is a whole different guy. Have y'all ever been to a show where the artist is taking requests? Why do people always think it's funny to yell "Freebird"? Whatever.)

The "I'm just here because my girlfriend thinks Charlie is hot" fans. I see a lot of these guys at shows. Just standing back behind their girlfriend, not looking like they're having fun, while their girlfriend drools over Charlie.

And, then the "uber fan". (Hee hee!) This is a real fan for the sake of enjoying the music and enjoying the guys who bust their asses making the music. Someone with no ulterior motives other than enjoying cool friendships and supporting those friendships - even if it means going out of their way. (Did I capture that one accurately?)

Anyone else see any funny fans at shows? I know there are others. I enjoy people watching. I'm sure you could come up with some for me, too (even on days when I don't wear the hat). I won't be offended ...

Don't forget the "backwards hat wearing, dipshit frat boy" fan.
Or the "old hippie" fan.
Both are pretty self-explanatory.

LAMO! YOu make me laugh! Hmmm....which on am I.......I wonder. Yes, you captured that one accurately my dear. Not sure if that's what Kevin meant, but from my standpoint, that's how I'm gonna take it. Thank you.

What's funny is Kgirl and I have come up with the same exact stereotypes.

I think the yells dumb things or CHARLIE RULES THE EARTH fan are the ballcap fans Porky. One and the same.


As for the "The "young, cute, slutty, drunk college girl" fans. I don't think I have to offer a further explanation. We've all seen them. "

OH YES, this DOES need further explanation - because I came across my Gruene Hall pics from Labor Day not long ago and I still laugh over this one. Typically this 'fan' has her thong underwear well above where it should be. And if she thinks the band or anyone else thinks it's hot....think again.....

Yes. Because when you get right down to it, isn't "respect" just another word for "stank-o-licious love bump".

I believe it is Porky.

You left out...
"I'm just here because my best friend is a Stalker."

"I'm not sure why I'm here, but I hate that girl up front and I refuse to have any fun what so ever. "

"I know you are here for the show, but I'm going to try and carry on a whole conversation about something extremely boring. I am going to talk very loud during your favorite song. You will try to duck and hide, but I will find you again in the bathroom and follow you back to the stage."

Did your wife do that Frank? I tried to get mine to do it, but she said something about being modest, then punched me in the gut.

How about "toothless meth fiend" fan? I've never actually seen one, but I'm sure they exist.
