Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
At the request of the person that this post was written for, I have removed it.
Isn’t it what I do almost every night, though? I mean, I’m not one to count down the seconds until a new year or anything. It’ll be here when I wake up.
No matter what kind of event you’re holding, crowd control is an extremely important thing to consider. Take the Juggalo Convention that occurred the year before last, for instance. For those of you that have never heard of that convention and have next to no idea what I am talking about, the “Juggalos” — basically, fans of the Insane Clown Posse, among other things — hold an annual music convention. Well, as I’m sure some of you might already have read on some of the more popular celebrity gossip sites, Tila Tequila was invited to this convention… and she appeared, even in spite of threats beginning to circulate around the Internet that the Juggalos would throw things at her while she was on stage. There were even other threats that they would “do worse” to her because she was seen as a bit too “poppy” for their tastes.
Sure, the barricades that they had up did help matters some… that, and the velvet rope also kept most of the rowdy Juggalos from getting on top of the stage she was singing on. And I’m not sure that even the best stanchions from CamelBackDisplays.com would have protected her to the extent that she needed to be protected parading around on the stage with her top off saying, “I’m not going nowhere! I’m not going nowhere!”, but I digress. Needless to say, Tila did get injured. Crowd control items such as the ones that I’ve chosen to link to can only do so much… and that’s provided that you’re not instigating the crowd in question for the sake of doing so. Just remember that in general.
