After two weeks away, it’s time for another CONCERT POD®!

We’ve all experience shows being ruined by that disaster in front of you who can’t stand up straight. Maybe we’ve been that disaster. Regardless, it’s time to discuss carrying in your own alcohol, drinking $11 beers. After the jump you will find a bunch of thought provoking answers from our team. As always your feedback is welcome both in the comments section or twitter.
