I have to laugh at this - Crack down on aggressive dancing
"Slam" dancing is now illegal in Boston. Would someone like to tell me how a club is suppose to prevent a mosh pit? If you're in a large venue and a mosh pit starts, good luck kicking out everyone involved in the pit. You'd have to cut the show short and people would probably riot. So clubs are suppose to put up signs that say "no moshing" and then if there is moshing they get fined. This is just laughable.
As a concert goer you know what you're getting into. If you don't like moshing then don't go to a metal/hardcore/punk show or you can be like me and stand off to the sides and avoid the mosh pit. The House of Blues has multiple levels and is quite large so I've never had a problem avoiding the pit. Neon signs are not going to solve this problem and doesn't the BPD have anything better to do then hand out a ticket to a club for a mosh pit? Maybe patrol the streets for real crime?
Boston is the most progressive yet puritan state there is. It just blows my mind what is legal and illegal here.
Gay marriage LEGAL (yea!)
Mosh pits ILLEGAL
Marrying your fist cousin LEGAL (?)
Tomatoes may not be used in the production of clam chowder ILLEGAL (well I agree to this)
Alcoholic drink specials ILLEGAL (I'll make my own then!)
