Lady Sovereign's Got Me Thinking 'Bout Fan Behavior

We all waited nearly two hours for a 45 minutes set. So there was a lot of time to kill before Lady Sovereign’s show on Feb 4 at the Logan Square Auditorium.

Her show was well work the wait. But in order to make the wait appear shorter during the snooze-worthy DJ sets, I jotted down a bunch of questions about fan non-verbal behavior.

The way Lady Sov performed and the way fans responded to “So Human” calls to mind the behavioral side of concertgoing.

So I’d like to share with you a short list of my questions I wondered about before, during and after the show:

What are some ways you entertain yourself while waiting for a headliner?

When was the last time you didn’t check your cell phone or text a friend while waiting for a headliner?

Why isn’t there more communication among fans (the ones you didn’t come with) before a show starts?

How much do we depend on non-verbal to communicate with each other before and during the show? And is that non-verbal communication more important to us than the show itself?

Have any questions of your own?

I look forward to your responses. In the meantime here’s the “So Human” video and some front row live fan cell phone footage from the concert:
