I hate to see people Over dressed at concerts, it gives the impression they are not there for the music but to be seen.

I think jeans, tank top and flats it's the best concert wear. The band T shirt is also nice, people seem to wear them this days only as fashion statements everywhere but the concert hall.

Ha! I overdress for everything!

But yeah, as I've said many times here, for me it's all about the shoes. Foot protection is a must unless it's a reserved/seated show as people invariably step on your feet. No open toes and I personally like a comfy big rubber heel for height.

I am a little surprised about tank tops though. I don't like to expose that much skin to a sweaty crowd (especially a pit crowd), but then again it depends on the gig.

I totally agree. All the girls that I see coming to concerts in heels and mini-dresses just make me laugh. Especially when they're going into the pit.

Anything but heels, i attended this Garbage gig years ago wearing high heeled sandals just to look cool and i felt miserable for the whole concert, which happened to be basically shamefully bad too. Oh well...

I couldn't even imagine going to a gig in heels I struggled in wellies at Reading festival! When I first put them on I could barely walk I'm not a country gal I did manage to pick up the art by the end of the weekend AND I managed to keep both wellies

I've got a few winter gigs coming up! They're the hardest because it's boiling inside but when you get outside it's freezing for the journey home so I never know what to take

Yeah, heels are dangerous at gigs. I am also always surprised by the girls in flip flops carrying their giant handbags. Seems like I'm always getting smacked by someone's pointy handbag in a crowd!

Cold weather is challenging. Layers work, but I often end up tying things around my waist, which is not the cutest look. Well, what can you do? Some bigger clubs have coatchecks which is helpful but then you almost miss your ride home waiting for your coat.

A sample of what to wear to a gig while working ... even an skirt... ok not a massive one... note the bag closed by an scarf that's my trick solution... its a pain to open but its kinda safe... I was wearing flat boots...

I would imagine seeing Kasabian in the UK would be a bit insane. Curious, what is the current trendy indie girl uniform there now?
Well, Kasabian have the indie chav element of fans, but basically, most indie kids dress exactly the same, not much individuality. It's only the arty indie kids that hang out in the electro crossover clubs that dress with flair. Otherwise it's all cardigans, plaid shirts, crappy pretend band t shirts and denim skirts/shorts.

And to get back on subject, when I saw the Pixies on friday I just shoved on my scraggy jeans, a breton long sleeved baggy t shirt and dm's so my feet didn't get trampled. They're the same DM's I had in 93 at gigs. They wear well!

On monday I saw Spiritualized and that was just as casual, I don't even think about what I'm wearing to gigs, because no one cares really, it's about the band, not us!

Indie chav?

How does that even work

Nice outfit ediewho, I like your boots

I hate taking bags to gigs! I always need to though, I only take a side bag but it still annoys me. I end up clutching it throughout the whole gig just incase

Indie chavs, or Chindies as I hear them called, they tend to like the less sophisticated indie guitar stuff like The Kooks, Kasabian, Oasis, The Killers, stuff like that. There's no a lot of clubs left for them now though, so they filter into my saturday night at times and I have to turn them away. They're always so aggressive too!

'Less sophisticated indie guitar stuff', have you listened to a kasabian album before?

I'm sorry but this 'chindie' sounds like a load of bollocks to me

Of course I have, I get sent it all for free and do listen to everything, whether I have preconceptions of it or not. Thats how you find the gems. I remember thinking there was a couple of good moments early on, can't remember the name of it but the promo copy came wrapped in a flag. I read the interviews and they come across very badly, and musically I find them rather derivative and unoriginal, although their last album is much more experimental in comparison.

And of course you probably haven't heard of 'chindie', but I assume you don't work in music so it might not be a commonplace expression in your town etc.
