In! To! The! Pit!

After looking at Compare the Mosh, a site that puts up pairs of photos of pits and asks you to pick the winners - think with wild flailing arms - it strikes me that what really defines a good pit (or at least a good pit photo) is when you have to look twice to tell if you're looking at a mosh pit or a riot. Limbs should be flailing, people should be packed like sardines and clinging to the edge of balance from the constant movement, and - of course - everyone should be having a pretty good time. In fact, we at Baroque Bleak Brutal celebrate the mosh pit in all of its majesty: that's why the photo of a pit - taken at this show - adorns the background of our blog's banner.
