Find Me On:
I love that you say you’ve never experienced this yet use the word “faggy” in the most typical Boston bro style.
I will admit that shows at the Middle East/TT’s usually didn’t have this problem. It was mostly old Landsdown and the Paradise or any larger venue (Sigur Ros was at the Pavilion).
As much as you answered in a rude fashion, I’m glad you haven’t experienced terrible Boston shows.
This is timely, as my friend just told me that there were multiple fights at a Kooks concert in Boston the other night. I grew up in Boston and went to many shows there thinking that fights and obnoxious drunks were the norm. After being in Chicago for 3 years and seeing crowds here I can say that Boston crowds are pretty terrible. I once went to a Sigur Ros show where a girl howled like a wolf through half the songs. I went to a Franz Ferdinand show where a kid tried to start a mosh pit, he was only half successful. The traditional “Yankees suck” chant happens every time, even for bands that have nothing to do with New York. It’s ridiculous.
It looks like Belle and Sebastian in movie form, which means I will see it the second it comes out.
Also, good to see Gilly escaped Castle Black.
Yikes. Hand around the neck and everything. That looks awful.
Yes, this is exactly what I needed today. Heard a lot of these when I saw them live. Just wonderful.
In their defense, it is Elle UK and Europe doesn’t really have as much of a history with the Native American stuff. I’m sure some are vaguely aware of it, but not in the way it has been ingrained in Americans. I was in Spain once and saw one living statue dressed in full Native American garb and another in blackface. And people were taking pictures with them. Culturally they didn’t know it was wrong, I guess.
Not saying Pharrell wasn’t dumb for putting it on, just pointing out that European awareness of this is less than Americans.
When did they get back together? This is awesome, they were always great live.
though crochet works too.
I am actually really excited for the crazy that’s about to happen. Twitter is perfect for Moz and his crochet old man persona.
