I'm just going to use real band names and say that I hosted Japandroids and Portugal. The Man at my school last night for an outdoor show. Japandroids worked pretty great outside and I was surprised how clear the vocals were. I'm guessing it would be more muddled in a club but expect them to be clear at Sasquatch. Really fun set and while there was definitely a mosh pit, it was really mellow, no slam dancing or anything.
Portugal. The Man were amazing beyond words. I can't recommend them enough. The set they're playing right now is so damn good and the guys are all amazingly nice as well.

Even though I firmly believe that some "opinions" subject themselves to factual verification, like "Nickelback is a god awful fucking band," I'm willing to chalk this up to a matter of taste. I'm not wrong; you just haven't seen enough enough of this ass clown bullshit to be sick of it like I am.

ive been in a fuck ton of pits. some more violent then others, but never in something as sad as those fat chics and never in something so angry and senseless that you walk out severly bruised and bloodied. i enjoy the pits where a band that isnt so hardcore is rocking out and everyone kinda unintentionally and naturally dances/jumps in unison and pits where the band is hardcore and everyone is just feeling the songs and break downs and starts trucking eachother and stuff... at either end of that spectrum its pretty much a big collection of awesome energy.
wimpy half assed push pits are awkward. slam dance competitions and round kicks i just dont understand.
