Successful Crash #2: Dave and The Black Crowes at Alpine

dave~Z.T.~ Find the weak spot in security. (Look for the ticket taker who’s laughing with the girl next to her.) Fold up a piece of paper to the size of a note card. Wait for a rush of people. Walk quickly, but not too quickly, towards the ticket taker. Hold your phone up to your ear.* Put your head down. Flash the paper in an exaggerated “I just had this scanned” motion, but do not hand the paper to them. Never slow down. Don’t look back. Congratulations, you’ve just crashed a show.

This is more or less what I did to get into the Dave and Black Crowes show. Just add in 15 minutes of me looking around nervously in between the security check point and the ticket-taker. What a rush. I’ll let Andy review the show, but Dave basically gave a three-hour clinic on why he’s on the Mount Rushmore of touring bands in the last decade.

*The pretending to be on the phone move is optional. I chose against it this time. It’s effective when trying to kill time as you seek out the weak point in security, but I’m fearful it looks obvious as you walk in.
