Your Worst Concert Experience: The Phantom Grabber
And this is shameful to admit, but I was relieved that it was happening to him too. I didnt want to carry that burden alone. The problem identified, we tried to catch the Phantom Grabber in action. The problem was, he was too fast. Clearly this was a criminal on the move. When we spun around, looking for him, we only saw a group of older girls behind us. And as much as we would have fucking loved to believe they were the guilty partya prelude to a hook-up, perhaps?!in our hearts we knew that if someone was grabbing our asses at a concert, there was a 100 percent chance that it was a creepy dude. The show was already ruined, so we devoted our full energy to the Phantom Grabber. Maybe we fake-danced a little, but it was all for show. Finally, our nerves reached such a jumpy pitch that we were able to spin around virtually at the same moment when hand met ass. The next time he struck, we whirled aroundand there he was. The villain in the flesh.
