Concerts Are Not What They Used To Be.
Is it something in the water?
November 8, 2021 - Location of Topic - Houston, Texas
I was having a discussion with a friend of mine last month and he was telling me about a Pink Floyd concert he had gone to when he was younger, recalling it as the best concert he had ever attended. It was a conversation we had had before that usually went with him reminiscing over a bygone music era, one that I had never experienced and could not relate to.
In my own experience, attending music concerts was something I had given up years ago. There were several reasons for this, one of them being my desire to prevent further hearing loss sustained during my time spent DJing at the #1 party school in the nation. This is something my freshman high school physics teacher might take some credit for, as I recall the day he relayed to us his own regrets about attending concerts wherein he himself sustained irreversible hearing loss.
It was not just a concern for losing one of my favorite senses, however. Music concerts, in my experience, were not events that I recall with much fondness. It brought up memories of almost getting fatally smashed against a metal traffic barrier, of having drunk males attempt to get physical with me (for listening to music too close to their girlfriend or other some such nonsense), and of constantly getting one’s personal space broached to the point where paying attention to the music itself was a chore.
In the case of a music festival, my experience was that of getting split up from the group of friends that I had travelled with for the majority of the day, almost passing out, and proceeding to piss off some guy I bumped into as I struggled to maintain consciousness en route to heading away from the stage and crowd. My almost passing out was my fault though, as I was not drinking enough water.
What about the people that passed out at the Travis Scott / Drake concert? As of this writing, 11 people are reported to have had a cardiac arrest, with 8 people dead, over 300 needing on-site emergency treatment, and some 25 people needing to be hospitalized. Videos on Twitter have shown a person getting crowd-surfed, seemingly unconscious, to the back of the crowd while multiple others appear to have full-on heart attacks.
What happened this past weekend at the Travis Scott Astro World music concert in Houston?
Already it appears the legacy media is doing a clean-up job, with rumors coming from local Houston media (per Houston-based investigative reporter, Natly Denise) that someone was stabbing security guards with a fentanyl-filled syringe, thereby explaining why the security team at the concert failed so abysmally in ameliorating the chaos that was ensuing.
Assuming we did not take this “report” as veracious, hook-line-and-sinker, what did happen?
Investigative reporter George Webb has asserted in the past that a possible medium of extermination for the Shadow Government would be music concerts sprayed with aerosolized bioweapons. Concerts would be an ideal “slaughter pen” for eliminating fighting-age males and females at the height of their fertility as they are often confined or semi-confined spaces containing large groups of mostly young people. The idea behind this being, of course, population reduction (see my report on the Elbert County Sheriff Department-protected Georgia Guidestones here).
Despite the fact that the “official” number of dead is listed at 8 and injured at more than 300, several people have asserted they believe the actual number of fatalities is much higher. One young man recounted his experience at the concert through a video posted on Twitter.
“It felt like we was literally in hell…It felt like we was in a concert in hell. You couldn’t breathe, you couldn’t see…I’m thinking it’s probably at least 100 people who dead tonight, I kid you not….In the VIP section there was so many bodies laid out, people getting pulled out who was fainted, The medics was trying to give them CPR, they was flipping them over and they was literally turning black and blue. I had never seen death in my fucking life bro. Just by me alone it was probably 10 fucking people laid out dead and like once the medics tried to help them, they wasn’t responding..they moved to the next person…. That was demonic shit. What was crazy was people was screaming help, trying to tell Travis Scott, they was like help, the whole crowd was like help,. help,. help and he just keep going bro…that shit was scary bro, it was so demonic bro…it was chaos bro…it was a living fucking hell.” (sic.)
Three lawsuits have already been filed by various concert-goers, against both Travis Scott and Drake, who also performed at the event.
The way people described the event and from the videos we have seen so far, it is reminiscent of part of the scene of The Battle of The Bastards in Season 6 of Game of Thrones. Jon Snow is seen struggling to breathe as he finds himself in the midst of a crowd of battling soldiers attempting to kill each other.
Then there is the imagery that was seen at the concert, another topic of interest for internet denizens.
(The captions seen below the images are not mine, FYI.)
“We are hearing horrific accounts of the terror and helplessness people experienced—the horror of a crushing crowd and the awful trauma of watching people die while trying unsuccessfully to save them. We urge others who suffered physical or emotional injury or witnessed the events of that day to contact us and share their stories,” said the lawyer Ben Crump for one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, 21-year-old Noah Gutierrez.
There is another important variable to consider: the percentage of concert-goers who were vaccinated. Unfortunately, I do not believe this is information that the public is going to be privy to, unless all concert goers publicly disclose that voluntarily.
It is essential to consider the vax variable, as it is no secret that we are seeing more and more young people suffer from negative side effects of the supposedly safe “vaccinations”, including the most able-bodied among us, professional athletes. Most of the time the vax injury affliction manifests as myocarditis: an inflammation of the heart that can have long-term effects on the individual, something which is statistically affecting young males more than other demographics, although young females and other demographics have seen cases of this particular vaccine injury.
Perhaps I am simply too introverted and bookish to enjoy concerts, regardless of the time they take place.
Notwithstanding my appreciation for both music and silence, it is safe to say that the music concert experience is no longer what is used to be.

I'm so sad for this generation. There are wonderful memories and fabulous experience s that today's young people will never have . Our society has turned in such a dark dark way and I'm very glad to have grown up in the time that I did. Albeit not perfect but definitely not the hell on earth we seem to be existing in now.
Say what will about boomers but we came away from our childhoods and teen years with some semblance of respect for human life. And each other.
This terrible tragedy makes me weep for our youth.
