The Solution to the Talking at Shows Problem
Last night I caught Langhorne Slim at Iota (very good, pick up tomorrow's paper for the review). I was standing about five rows from the stage and right in front of me was a small group of people who talked incessantly through the entire show. During songs, between songs, just nonstop. And it didn't bother me in the slightest. Not one bit. Why?
They were speaking in sign language.
First, let's give it up for some (possibly) hearing-impaired people who still make it out to see live music on a Thursday night in Arlington. And maybe we can use them as inspiration for helping us end the epidemic of people talking over bands. If you desperately need to talk during a show -- learn sign language! You can be polite and it's a solid skill that can come in handy (no pun intended) at some point in your life. Get to it, folks!
