NO SOULY BAD. HYDRATION IS KEY. Every fuckin year they have to drag people unconscious from the pit because they didn't drink enough water. You wanna be pissin' clear at the end of the day or you're not doing it right.
And if you choose to piss in a bottle instead of being a normal human being and going to the Honey Buckets, then you are disgusting.
Having seen the Lips (look, I avoided the filter on porpoise) from pretty much the front row (2nd or 3rd as people pushed around) I can tell you its really not much different because the entire show is directed at the whole crowd. Really, you dont even get hit with as much confetti since its all aimed further back.
MM is another story, I would totally be down to see MM from the front, but I know that at best I can not pee for maybe 3 hours as sasquatch with the huge amounts of water and booze I am drinking.
If it gets bad, I'll leave.. It all depends on the day really. I've done 14 hours on the barrier before, and that day is only 12 if I get there when the first band starts.
I can't really explain what it is about the front for me. I'm not one to push my way to the front, so I usually end up waiting outside the venue to make sure I get it. For one, It's a lot easier to stand for long periods of time, and there's no one to block your view. I've been to a lot of shows where I was a few rows back too, but I will alway like the very front.
Then again, I am only 13, so maybe I'll grow out of it.
