if you are standing for hours on end in the open air - comfy boots!!
And a mac.

If getting into the moshpit them defo defo a good bra...sports if you have got it, essential item when moshing with the lads.

Donbean Wed 06-Jul-05 13:56:47

If it were me, then i would be wearing steel toe capped biker boots, and a good bra.
It can get very rough out there in the gigging world. Sigh, flash backs to my youth.....

It's just along from where I'm sitting at work at the moment! It's raining anyway, so I'd definately go for boots! You're just asking for sore toes if you wear sandals

megandsoph Wed 06-Jul-05 14:31:28

awww cheers tetley lol ( wow I have my own weather report) hehe

Tetley Wed 06-Jul-05 14:33:11

No probs! Sun's starting to come out now.....

wilbur Wed 06-Jul-05 14:39:08

Def not sandals, feet will be trodden on and then when you go to the loo you will find the floor covered in bleueeuch which you will not want your tootsies to dip in! You might be going to a better class of concert that me, but most of the venues I've ben to are like this! I usually take a lightweight cardi/top that I can tie round my waist too as sometimes coming out into the cold air afterwards can get a bit chilly. And don't forget about your make-up sliding off your face and giving you panda eyes when you get too hot. Mmmm, I miss gigs and clubbing days .

megandsoph Wed 06-Jul-05 14:42:06

lol wilbur

gosh i'm 25 and its me first ever gig

my younger days were big clubs hence the confusion with sandels n stuff.... would it be ok though to wear boots with a heal? coz I don't have anything else no a big shoe collecter u see

lou33 Wed 06-Jul-05 16:45:45

depends what the music is like and how big the venue is.

i went to see james blunt last week in a small venue, and wore a skirt and flip flops, and a strappy t shirt, because a) the venue was tiny and undercover so would get really hot, and b) it isn't the type of music you chuck yourself about to. didn't get trodden on but i was still way too hot

we're going to see oasis at the weekend but it's outdoors so need totally different clothes. Am thinking jeans, sheepskin boots, vest (if hot), zip up jacket (if not). Plus probably an anorak ...

...well I went to see The Wiggles today & wore jeans, T shirt and boots !!

<drfts off.....remembering when I used to go to gigs........>
