Why some people get the shits if someone wears a band t-shirt at that same bands gig...
Who are these people? That's perfectly normal. I don't get people who wear team jerseys to games their club isn't playing in. Like a person wearing a Freo jersey to a West Coast vs Port Adelaide game.

I only managed about three paragraphs of each article, sounds like it was written by a 16 year old dude who went to a gig with a girl he was crushing on and she left with another guy wearing that bands shirt. Here's a commandment they missed, go to enjoy the music, not to judge others. You'll have more fun that way.

If you possess a band t-shirt then what more ideal place to wear it than that bands gig?

Whoever these people are (if they actually exist), their opinions are highly irrelevant and they're the ones with real issues if they're seriously that offended by such a thing.

I'd guess that they're the type of person that loves a band they heard on community radio (the only radio station they will listen to) and the second they get more well known ditches them because too many people know them now.

Yep great place to live :thumbsu:

Well planned, safe, friendly and welcoming locals, affordable (relativer to Syd/Melb), great sporting facilities, great place place to raise a family, close to the beach and the snow , no traffic jams, lots of green space and heaps of cultural stuff.

Only downside is winter , gets mega cold.

Close to the beach?

I lived in Canberra for three years; considering 90% of Australia's population lives within 50kms of the coastline 'close to the beach' (unless you call Kambah pools a beach) is the last description I'd use for Canberra.

Only a short 30 hour walk to Batemans Bay

Who does this? It's definitely more edgy if you have another more obscure band's t-shirt on but surely no one would crack it?

Oh and try wearing a Metallica t-shirt at a Megadeth gig, i've done this and got hassled a bit ha ha
