According to Physics Central a group of students at Cornell University have begun to share their research about comparing concert rioting and mosh pits to the how molecules in gas behave with the plan […]
This is why we do this. You. The Fans. We love discovering, celebrating and exploring your concert experiences. And throughout 2011 we had the extreme pleasure of sharing some truly amazing live music moments with you. There was no shortage of emotion in 2011 as we explored why concerts move us so much. […]

In our SXSW preview, we told you about an intriguing fan-made movie called 100 Bands in 100 Days. I saw the film while we were in Austin during its world debut and it made me laugh, nearly moved me to tears and inspired me to look at live music in a new way.

Quick one here. It’s about you again. Concert fans. Weezer concert fans, to be exact. It came to me via my friend Diane Stein, who posted a link on my Facebook Wall about a Weezer fan, the co-founder of Posterous Sachin Agarwal, loving a show he experienced during the band’s current Memories tour.
