I was there! We had a blast!
We had less fun. Jen got in a fight with a stupid pushy cunt who kept elbowing into her immediately before the Faint came on and during the opening song & then slapped a guy in front of Jen in the back of the head. Jen turned around and pushed her and punched her in the stomach a couple of times. I got us out of there and we watched from near the bar, leaving after "The Conductor" (the song I was most looking forward to seeing) because I was thinking violent thoughts about the cocksucker emo ****** who was the pushy cunt's date and who was the one who started all the shoving into the back of us right before the band took the stage.
Everyone around us was more than tolerable and we were having a great time until it happened. I can put up with a lot of shit, but they were purposly pushing, trying to get us to fall over so we would move and they could get up to the front. The girl wasn't just dancing behind me. SHe was grabbing my shoulders and pulling my hair. We held our ground, but when the chick pushed up next to me and hit the kid in front of her because he said something to her, I lost it. I'm only sorry I fell during the altercation and I had to fight her on my knees. I really could have fucking clocked her if I had been upright.
She did manage to get most of my shirt off while I was punching her, so I think some people may have saw my boobies.
I went looking for Michael right away to have them removed and couldnt find him. So then I saw the owner/manager and told her about the assholes (I was honest and told her what I did. She didn't care. SHe said she doesn't like that type of shit happening in her place and she loves kicking those kinds) She took me to the side of the stage so I could point them out to her guys so they could get kicked out and we couldn't find them. We waited until the album was done and then we left. Mainly because I was worried that if we stayed, I'd go to jail.
Yeah, I don't mind bumping. We were in the crowd and fully expected bumping from dancing. Totally cool with that. It was the purposeful pushing to get people out of the way so the could get up to the front. They kept yelling "we're going to get up there no matter what you do" and "we paid the same amount as you so we can go wherever we want."
If there ever was a time to put that kickboxing to use...
i'll be at push gallery tonight downtown for live art, music and the like. i will likely create my own dancefloor too.
Both Louis C.K. shows have been rescheduled to February 15th. I guess they will be recorded for his next special HBO special.
Since it's being recorded i'm guessing it's a fat chance any tickets free up. Maybe i'll get lucky.
Am I the only one that thinks it's pretty fucking cool that he chose to do his HBO special here?
I challenge Ivysaur to be the heckler that makes the dvd.
Anyone know the capacity for the pit area at the Dodge?
I went down to Stinkweeds and bought my Beach House tickets. They were $27 each. I was a little surprised by the price, but Beach House could easily fill a larger venue. And I absolutely love Bloom so I had no reservations buying the tickets.
Fresh off his "JUICY AUSTRALIA TOUR"
A friend of mine that works at Dos Gringos says there is a block party going on down there and Miike Snow is playing tonight. Cant find anything online about it but tought I would pass that along.
