This thread is hilarious, thanks for thumping it!!!
I've had a few punches at mosh pits, but not realy hard or anything. I guess most of them were just pushing with closed fists, haha.
However, during the At the Gates concert, this guy next to me started pushing me (we were two "rows" behind the pit). I turned to see him and motioned towards the mosh pit. The guy starts yelling at me and pushing me. He was about twice my weight and seemed to be drunk or high, so I just turned around and started moving away, but he caught me and continued to yell at me t go away (?
), this time joined by a friend of his. At this point, a friend of mine got in the middle and the guys calmed down. I saw the guy at the mosh pit again, and he was really throwing punches at pretty much anyone and kept falling down.
I guess he was just looking for trouble.
And that's pretty much the only "story" I have on mosh pits. Other than that, all good experiences and fun.
