Last night's show, and a few words about concert etiquitte

The concert last night was awesome.

I never caught the name of the first band. They were onstage already when we got there. I liked them though.

I really liked Birthday Massacre. I knew of them, but I wasn't familiar with their music at all. I'm gonna have to check out some of their stuff.

Let me take a moment to talk about concert etiquette. If you're 6'4" do not stand directly in front of someone who is 5'4". That's just fucking rude. If you see someone has a really good spot, do not push them out of the way so YOU can have the really good spot. If you have to run out of the pit for some reason, try not to fall on people. And lastly, there's a lot to be said about using the words "excuse me" if you're trying to get to the middle of the pit from the outside.

Enough about rude scene kids.

Mindless Self Indulgence were just awesome. Jimmy Urine has so much freaking energy onstage. He just doesn't stop moving. That's probably why he's so skinny. He really needs to eat a sandwich or something. He went through various stages of undress while fucking with people in the audience and waxing poetic about the beauty of Robitussin. If his pants had been any lower, no doubt we all would have seen Little Jimmy. I'll admit, I find him oddly sexy. Emphasis on the word "oddly."

I was searching youtube for videos from the show, because plenty of people were recording. But apparently no one's uploaded anything yet.

Here's the setlist:

Shut Me Up
Lights Out
Stupid MF
Never Wanted To Dance
Pay For It
Capital P
Evening Wear
What Do They Know
Planet Of The Apes
Straight To Video
I Hate Jimmy Page

Things never change. Flippin' pit kids pushing people around to get where they are going. Was happening 10 years ago in shows I went to as well. Sometimes they need to trip over an outstretched foot.
