10 things not to yell between songs at a concert

“You rock!” may be an appropriate thing to yell between songs at an indie rock concert. Here are some things that may not be appropriate to yell:

  1. “If you were on the radio I would not change the station!”
  2. “I am not bored!”
  3. “I liked that last song much better than the one before it”
  4. “I am undecided whether to buy your CD or not!”
  5. “Your instruments seem to be in tune!”
  6. “You guys are OK!”
  7. “Does your band consider Flannery O’Connor an influence on your lyrics because you have a similar Southern Gothic-like narrative voice with twisted characters and an eye toward redemption?!”
  8. “That was almost as good as the version on the CD!”
  9. “Your singing voice has really improved since last time I saw you!”
  10. “Your bassist is not unattractive!”

So what don’t you yell between songs at shows?
