In response to our story, readers weigh in about violence at concerts and within the jam-band scene.
About 4 or 5 years ago, at Umphreys at Red Rocks, some random dude attempted to start a fight with me, while crossing the row looking for my friends. I've been to a couple other jamband shows here, and have seen such hostility multiple times. It might be just the Denver scene itself.
This happens at jam band/hippy shows in Denver. I’ve never had problems at hip-hop or EDM shows. Just saying.
Jay Polo notes:
Damn, the jam band crowd is usually pretty passive.
Why I don’t like crowded events. You never know when there’s some crazy POS there.Of course, violence is not isolated to the jam-band scene. Here is some of our reporting on assaults at concerts.
