Danzig Liberates Concertgoers

A growing trend among some metal and rock bands is the aggressively enforced ban of cell phones during live performances.  While their motivations are not unlike those of Metallica at the height of the Napster controversy (as these bands want their only live footage to be sold at dying retail stores in the form of $40 DVDs) they are actually doing their fans a great service by mitigating the amount of millennial vanity happening in the live concert environment.  Nobody likes the hipster douchebag belligerently sticking a phone in front everyone’s view to pad his YouTube stats, and young people are better off liberated from the soul consuming cell phone screen for awhile.

But of all of the bands attempting to police the visual pirating of their performances, Danzig and his reunited Misfits have taken the most militant enforcement of totalitarian rule of the concert environment.  Per Blabbermouth

“When you enter the space you show your ticket, your phone is placed in a Yondr case, the case locks, and once your phone is in there, it’s handed right back to you, [so] you never lose possession,” Graham Dugoni, who founded Yondr, told KXTV-TV.

“If you’re waiting for a call, that’s no problem; you can keep your phone on vibrate so you’ll feel it in your pocket or in your purse,” he added. “You can step outside to the lobby and they’ll unlock your phone there.”

As obsessive cellphone use decimates the minds and social skills of younger generations, these anti-phone spaces will expansively enhance the consciousness the environment.  This forces the concertgoer into actually experiencing reality along with the actual purpose of live performances.  Interestingly, there may actually be a sliver of hope for a western civilization in the hands of these young generations should these ridiculous cell phone locks and vehemently policed anti-cell phone policies expand to society outside of the concert space.

    Neat and all, but it seems like just another unnecessary step in the already cluttered human existence.

    I stopped attending any gigs or concerts for many years, then when I started again, it was vastly different.
    People held their cellphones over their heads, blocking the view of the others behind them…
    A few years later when I was told no videocameras were allowed at a particular gig, what fucking happens when the show starts? Everybody has their phones out and filming!
    People like me with actual videocameras are usually in the back, or off to the side, and out of the audience’s way, but not these assholes with cellphones.
    Well, I borrowed a cell, and wondered if I could hold the phone in front of my face, and not block anybody else’s view, why can’t everybody else??
    Gawdamn millenials.
    The same idiots that ride their bicycles in the middle of the street, as if they have the same rights as two tons of steel and are shocked when they get hit and run over.

      I love the bicyclists. They think stop signs are just suggestions. On one occassion, I saw one rolling right through the stop sign into traffic. As everyone else screeched to a halt to avoid splattering this spandex-ensconced moron, I continued through the intersection and watched as he slammed full speed into the side of my Jeep. I’m sure the 3/8” steel rock guards made an impression.

    The only reason DMU is rejecting the year-end list this year was because it was a snoozer year for metal.

    “No way man! Metal wasn’t weak this year! It’s the year-end lists that are weak! Metal rules!”

    It’s ok, metal can’t sodomize the corpse of Jesus every year. Sometimes Metal is tired and just wants to masturbate until they are tired then fall asleep. Amirite guys?

    Ahh, a video of the punk-ass misfit Glenn Dorkzig! Took one to the jaw and still acts like a toughguy! The Nerve of this shitead! Says Judas Priest isn’t metal yet has probably never listened a Mercyful Fate album in his life. He’s like the homoerotic douchebags in Manowar…
