I love rock music. It’s always been a personal favorite of mine and whenever I see any Houston nightclub events that involve some rock band, I want to go and check it out. Some people are more into a rowdier kind of rock music than I personally go for, but that’s okay. Everyone has their own tastes and likes what they like. Don’t worry rowdy rock fans; there is always plenty of entertainment going on in the city to please even the rowdiest fans. |
For those of us who just like straight up rock and roll, those shows don’t usually get too rowdy. Of course, I would say it’s rowdier than a Paul Anka show or something like that, but usually don’t see too much going on. There’s your typical yelling and screaming at the band and singing along, but that is pretty much it.
For harder rockers, they look forward to when the heavy metal bands come to town. It’s much louder than what I usually go for and the shows reflect that as well. The people are a little rougher and tougher at these shows and take their music pretty seriously. It reflects in their attitude when that start body surfing and things like that.
The real hardcore fans go in for things like speed metal and death metal. Now, they aren’t exactly my taste in music. To me it just sounds like a lot screaming and yelling and a lot of noise. It’s not exactly my idea of a good time.
However, you did get quite a rowdy crowd and a lot of these events. When you cram a couple of hundred people all liking this kind of music into a small club, mayhem is bound to ensue. There is crowd surfing sure, but they are also likely to have a mosh pit, where people throw themselves at each other and a fight breaking out is not an uncommon thing.
Personally, I don’t go to listen to a band so I can get injured. I would rather make it through the show and enjoy the music than have to worry about whether my fingers or broken or if I am going to get arrested for my behavior. I am sure not all the shows are like that, but I have heard that it happens at a number of them around the city.
So I guess my idea of rock entertainment is a little tamer than some other people’s. When I look at the Houston nightclub events for the weekend and see a rock show, I usually look at the advertisement to see if anything gives me a clue to the type of music they play. If the picture has a skull and crossbones in it, the band is likely not for me.
