It’s not hard to tell the difference between a strip club and a music venue.You can’t even call the line between strippers and musicians performing on stage fine. (You can call the musicians that, but that’s something else entirely.)
There are a few quick and easy ways to tell that you’ve stumbled into a strip club and not a place to see your favorite artists. The poles are typically a giveaway, but if that’s not enough for you, turn around. See a bar? That’s probably a venue. Is there also a buffet? Then it’s definitely a strip club.
If none that works for you, maybe wait and see the performers on stage. If they whip anything out that isn’t a microphone, you’re in a strip club.
But one fan at an Ashanti concert simply couldn’t handle it. He threw money at the stage throughout the night as if she was working a pole in Tampa. After about the third rain bills, Ashanti had had enough. She strolled to the edge the stage and makes the distinction real clear for this particular concertgoer who thought he was a patron.
“I’m gonna need you to stop throwing money,” she said in the middle a striptease-themed segment the show. “I’m not a f*cking stripper.”
