Big Whoop. Review by Julius C. Lacking.
First-time author and rock-concert veteran Steve Weinberger has written perhaps the funniest overview of the mosh-pit population ever. Like a mad scientist, Weinberger categorizes and analyzes every species of concertgoer in No Air Guitar Allowed, painting them with deft satirical strokes and a surprisingly empathetic eye. Ink 19 and Weinberger discuss how he spent years of his life illustrating the differences between KISS and indie-rock fans.
