Yeah I don't get rail riding either.

Pros:
how else am i supposed to get lost in bayliss' eyes?

Cons:
Gotta get there early AF
Crowded AF
No dance room
Further away from pisser
Further away from beer
Sound sucks
Don't get full effect of Waful's magic

Coming from an ex rail rider, the sound in the front is situational. Some venues they bring in some small wedge speakers that are aimed into the crowd and you can actually have amazing sound. I was rail for Kzoo 2013 and that was one of the best sounding UM shows I've attended FWIW. You do potentially sacrifice an equal balance between the instruments though, especially if you are on Jake side. His amp drowns out almost everything if you're too close to it. I'm over it now but I have no regrets seeing a fair amount of shows up close. UMbowl IV at Park West I legitimately felt like I was inside the show, that was a pretty mind blowing experience for my 18 year old self.

Halloween 2013 was when I learned the magic of the balcony though and I've been a balcony bitch ever since. I think I'm in the minority within the jam scene but at this point I'd prefer ticketed shows with exact seats. It is super convenient for winter shows having a spot for your coat, and to be able to have your whole crew leave with no risk of someone conquering your space.

Honestly I'm totally with you on the balcony seats. I LOVE seated shows for winter tour (for the same reasons you stated above), but summer tour is all about that GA. I like to run freely when its nice outside.

No one's telling you how to enjoy your concert, just voicing opinions. Softy.

They aren't telling you how you should enjoy concerts, just making fun of the way you choose to  ;)

If he wasn't so combative and sensitive, he wouldn't get the reaction he's getting.

To be honest, no one's giving him that hard of a time, they/we just said we don't care to ride the rail. He somehow took that as "people who ride the rail are dumb."

I saw over 40 shows 100% sober...no booze , no pot, no nothing.  Of those shows not a single one was less than a three hour drive from where I lived.  I spent hundreds of hours and travelled thousands of miles...100% sober.

The lights were a huge part of why I went to the show, and i think wafuls scaling up over those years played a huge role in getting them to where they are now. 

So I disagree with your assumption that anyone who goes to shows for the lights is a drugged out loser. 

I know you're probably just trolling to piss people off  and don't actually mean most of the shit you post.  But I think waful deserves lots of credit for his role in the UM spectacle.  Calling people drugged out for appreciating it shows a lack of perspective IMO
