    Jack White can bite my shiny metal a**. I don’t want to look at someone’s phone instead of the band for an entire show. But if I want to record my favorite song, or a special moment in concert, and especially if I can do it somewhat discreetly, then no one should be able to tell me “no” to that. I love some of the videos I’ve been able to capture from shows I’ve been at and share them with others (who then went on to go to those shows too)! And I’m tall, so I can hold the camera down lower and get a great shot without blocking people any more than I already am by just existing (which I can’t really help)
