Just wondering on the thoughts and feelings on banners that bands use on stage. I was at a show the other night to take some photos of some local bands here in town. The headliner was a Kiss tribute band ( I almost threw up writing that) .But anyhow they had their KISS banner up the whole time while the other bands played. To me thats so fucking disrespectful to the other bands. Plus its a pain in the ass trying to take pics of some band and another bands banner is in the background. I know most likely 90% of you are in bands here. So what you think?

Banners SUCK.. This is why you'll never see a Blind Greed banner at our shows. Who needs a sign? Absolutely GAY!

What's wrong with banners? If you have such a problem with it, ask them to take it down while you play if its up there while they're not.

Politely ask someone to take the banner down. Yes, a very irritating suggestion.

Y: Obviously you've never been IN a show. There is no time to politely ask anybody to do anything. Any time spent having a discussion or removing someone else's shit is time you lose for your set. NOT an option. Usually I just spit on them and make fun of the fonts. How old ARE you anyway?

I'm old enough to know that if someone does this to the banner of another band they're playing with, "... spit on them and make fun of the fonts," that they're being childish.

So then AP1 was right. You're 12. You've been avoiding that question for over a month now. Yes i'm childish. Are you going somewhere with that or are we done here?
