However if getting drunk involves people sitting next, behind or in front of us getting obnoxious and spoil the evening of my party of four I might swing a punch.
Dr. Evil: Don't worry, mama. Things won't get weird.
I flew in from New York for the Harrogate show in July and there were some obnoxious drunk guys hanging out just inside the theater door hollering loudly off topic and stumbling around. They were not singing happily. They weren't even watching the show. So that's MY hard earned 1,100 on top of my ticket price to come see the band I love, being interupted.
With Birm, we have a awful lot of people coming from other countries, spending a lot of money to come see an incredible band make music. I'm not talking about singing, but drunk people aren't too well know for staying on focus, and I think the concern here is that the behavior will veer away from singing into, talking loudly, shouting, jostling, moving about (not dancing) during rude moments.
No ones saying anyone can't have fun, I'll probably dancing if the chance arises, and I totally love when people sing along! But a lot of people are investing a lot of time and money in this event, not the least of which is the amazing man that will be on stage. This isn't just *some gig*
Try not to get too mad for people asking okay? Can you try and understand what people are asking and why they are worried? I think we're all gonna be just fine and have the best time ever!
