From last night...
So jealous of everyone at that show. I really wish Glass House didn't have a barricade.
Where's Underworld and Mew? Make it happen GV.
Multi camera video of Refused secret show in Brooklyn with 150 people...this show was absolutely insane!
I like Refused, but I'm kinda inclined to agree with this guy
Fuck that guy, those guys have been making the exact same music their whole career, what does he know. He is pissed theyre not headlining and getting paid to play good music.
Even if that is true he is still making some good points
What did he even say...I could hardly hear it.
Why does it matter if those things are true? I don't care if they are there for the money. Most bands are aren't they? It doesn't interfere with the fact that i'm there for the music.
Yeah, that guy comes across as one of those hardcore, they-didn't-stay-in-the-scene-and-wear-a-leather-jacket-so-they-aren't-punk sorta dudes. Fuck him.
And it seems to me that his point is that Refused made songs, played shows and then disappeared, and now that they're back he's just not down with it. But you know why we give them money to come back and play for us? Because they wrote damn good songs that we wanted to hear. I'm sure if fans of his clamored for him to return because he wrote a seminal album in ten years, I bet he'd do it.
Live stream from Primavera coming up next
Does it sound better now? I had to turn it off during Liberation Frequency because it sounded so bad. What was going?
EDIT: Yup! Definitely sounds better now.
i was there and supre wasn't. one upped. god that place was such a shithole, but saw some great stuff there over the years.

OK, so I missed Refused at Coachella, and I decided to see them at the Fillmore in Silver Springs, MD, last night. They were good, but not memorable. Maybe because it was a Monday night & wasn't a sell-out crowd. I'm glad they reunited, but I bet they were better at Coachella with a larger, wilder crowd. The lead singer is 40 years old and is very cute and is as fit as a teenager, skinny jeans and all. The first group, Off, was really stoopid. The lead singer has a comb-over, and he's yelling "Who here is from Hermosa Beach?" - like anyone from the DC area even knows where Hermosa Beach is. After the song, he mumbles, "Ok, how about anyone from California?" LOL. Good times.
I would have loved to see the Circle Jerks back in the day. But sometimes, you can't go back.
OFF! are great wehn they actually play their songs, but yes keith morris is fucking annoying and ruins any momentum the set ever has with his yammering.
Tonight's Refused/OFF! show at Williamsburg Park in Brooklyn canceled because of the crazy fucking storm that hit an hour ago. Apparently Counting Crows went off without a hitch last night, so there's something anyway. You know, if you like that shit.
Maybe this will top Converge show there I saw couple years ago...
Refused & Off! playing Europa TONIGHT instead
"Brooklyn, this is the best we can do. OFF! has secured Europa Club (98 Meserole Ave, Brooklyn) for us to play tonight. First come, first serve. Doors 9pm, OFF! at 10pm and we will play until Fallon comes on!" - Refused
Thank you Refused for playing in that 100 degree club Show was absolutely insane! This show will end up being in my top 10 of 2012 for sure.
