I think we all know that most folks in most audiences are fine having a few scoops during the gig ... Ater all, most of use are only in a venue for 2-3hrs & you can't really get messy in that time. Its the straight-after-work/college drinks that are the killer, they'll catch up on you by 9 o'c & thats when you become the iritating person in the audience.

Hey, you're right. Blood tests at the door is the only option. ;)

Damn straight. It is easy enough to get into gigs being underage tho.

In fairness too, whether alcohol is sold at gigs or not, people are going to be drinking beforehand. Sure at the gig a few weeks ago, I saw girls bringing in cans in their handbags..bags weren't being searched or anything. I didn't even know you could do that!

Aye, true. If someone plans on getting wasted nothing will stop them!

I think the Belfast gig was so bad because it was in the union on a Friday night. The 1.70 drink promos probably contributed pretty heavily to the drunken vibe! And right up until the band were on stage, you could bring drinks from Bar Sub and the Bunatee into Mandela Hall, which was kinda strange.

My main problem was people talking right through the songs, so maybe rude people should be banned rather than alcohol :D

But that's so much harder to do. :)

Not a problem, put me on the door and I'll turn away people I don't like the look of... not even tickets could save them.

I don't believe that banning would sort the problem. Reeducation is the way to go. And offering another choice to people.
here's one. it's not much but it's a start (as read in the IT and that i will check soon. music sounds good...)
