He could’ve just summed it up as “All you fuckin’ hillbillies, shut the fuck up”
“Please welcome to the stage, Mark Kozelek!”
Mark walks on-stage.
“Just kidding, fuck your band.”
Mark walks backwards, giving the booing crowd a middle finger while grabbing his crotch.
Oof, I don’t know about the idea that mosh pits themselves should be phased out. All this talk about how violent and intrusive they are is news to me, but maybe that’s because I don’t go to any really “hardcore” shows, just stuff with crossover appeal like Cloud Nothings and Fucked Up where there’s enough lily-livered sensitive people like me there to temper things. It’s never seemed like anyone was trying to hurt anyone, and for me personally it was more about just surrendering to a crowd during a really intense song. I don’t think anyone should have to be subjected to it if they don’t want to be part of it, but I can’t imagine a Japandroids show without everyone moshing and singing. It’s so essential they filmed it and made a music video.
Most of the pits I’ve been in have been great about keeping people safe. They catch or immediately help up people that have fallen, don’t force the action into the other part of the crowd, or they clear a path for people trying to get out. It seems like people just need to learn that stage diving, especially onto sparsely populated sections made up of smaller people, is part of that etiquette.
I’ve just been “connecting to peers” for a while now.
Tyler the Creator + Local Morning News sounds like someone at KTLA has no idea what he’s booking
For a second thought this was a new protest song
>“If you dare to call the mayor, taxes got your goat, well he don’t care. Cause you’re a millionaire, and he didn’t get your vote.”
Classic Blues songwriting material!
I’m a fan
This is great. I remember seeing them open for Conor Oberst sometime in 2008 and you could hardly google them back then, it was weird how little they had easily available. Then they disappeared for a while, I think she was out on one of her many supporting tours? Anyway I hope they get to put out another full album soon. For some reason this has a Dirty Projectors vibe to me.
