Arson is extremely active on stage and is known for his crazy stage antics.

Some of his known stage antics are:

  • Prolonged stares that last a little longer than the targeted audience member can handle.
  • Throwing his guitar over his shoulder and catching it as it swings back around.
  • Licking his microphone stand.
  • Crowd surfing, though the timing of this is highly unpredictable.
  • Throwing guitar plectrums at the crowd.
  • Licking his guitar plectrum and sticking it on someone's forehead.

He sometimes faints on stage due to rocking out in excess of the human ability.
