Mosh-pit mania “Civilization is hard to kill, even in the pit. They a woman was gang-raped in front of the stage at Woodstock ’99, but that was three days into it.” – well, that’s alright then. I used to go down the front at gigs, right at the front because I couldn’t be arsed with moshing, and an eye-of-the-storm effect occurs right up against the stage/cordon (the security is watching, for one thing). Now I hang back, or sit down.
