It was cold and the place was packed. A great night.
Dude, effin' Rad. Love me some New Orleans (and Foo). I got to see Rufus play the drums. It was killer that they played under pressure.. I DIG IT!

Thanks for sharing, Cheers

What does Brennivin taste like, tell me about your experience with it, and I would imagine you need to go clothes shopping cause nothin' fits, you like to spin tops, and you like cigarrettes with your Brennivin?


here to make friends.
copying and pasting my own answer to another post:

you wear whatever the hell you want. don't know why all this is even a discussion, there's no concert police to fine you for breaking the "etiquette", I'll wear something different, inside-jokish because I wore the band's shirt before and I like to diversify, I don't think I'm cooler than anyone for doing it, it's just what I like to do, it's not a rule.

the fun in having a few people catching references doesn't go beyond the innocent wink-wink fun because like I also said in that same response, you wear a fucking Justin Bieber shirt to a concert and I won't give two flying fucks about it, I like an obscure reference but I don't give a shit if you don't catch it.

ps.: Brennivin tastes great and having a few with cigarettes is also good.

glad to be making friends.

Would love to get the forum's opinion.. O.G. Foos, Newbies, & Foo's somewhere in-between :


Cool or Uncool?
Wearing a Foo T -shirt to a Foo Concert...


Cheers! : )
From the perspective of cool, how old is it? Vintage Foo? I generally wear all black, it's just easier but if I were thinking about wearing a Foo shirt to the next show, I'd go with a previous tour if you want to be cooler.

First, it shows experience. "Where'd you get that?? are they for sale here??" "No sorry I got this in (fill in the blank) but say something like London. Especially if you are going to Madison Wisconsin or something. Make it somewhere far away and exotic sounding which in Wisconsin for example, doesn't take much.

I used to be in the don't wear the band shirt to the concert crowd. I've even heard one singer who hated it and talked about it on stage. But, now I wear them to Foos shows, because I like looking at all the other Foo shirts. If my shirt from the 2000 tour wasn't holey, I'd wear it to a concert.

I wore my ABBA t-shirt to the last Foo Fighters gig I went to. It's a t-shirt that makes a LOT of people smile!

I'd not do that simply because someone can rip it off of you and throw that on ebay

Great question! I generally do not wear a bands shirt to their show, but I do love the bands response. Great clip as well!

The beauty of being an adult is doing whatever you want (ideally without breaking the law), and I will rock a Foo shirt for the New Years gig here in Vegas!

Where what you want. No fucking law, don't judge others if they wear a band's shirt to see the band
