Oversized t-shirt tucked into high-waisted jean shorts? She must be on her way to see a Smashing Pumpkins cover band. I love it when people dress the part of the era of music they are going to see. In fact, I think it should be required. They do not have to dress like the performers—if they were going to an Elvis act things could get overly expensive—but I do think an effort should be made.
Special exceptions will be made for bands that have performed for decades. Just because Slayer is still making rounds does not mean that you don’t have to wear overly ripped jeans and a sleeveless t-shirt with a wig. We are trying to keep a certain level of standards for the show. If you bring low effort then the performers might bring low effort.
I think a benefit to this policy is that it will filter out the casuals who do not care as much about the music. Shows don’t need people like that. They do need more people who can be pulled on stage and fill in for the members on any given song. Not that I want that to happen. I didn’t pay good money to see a nobody get turned into a viral video.
