He's just BRILLIANT isn't he?
And so LOVELY.
.org speaks of a potential other show tonight... ???
I am relying on you to be my ears. and eyes.
RYAN WROTE (about playing tonight and another show):
to be honest, it is up to me, and although 80 percent of the people we encountered have been real sweet i gotta say the 20 percent of the troublmakers and just disrespectful fuckwits who go out of their way to get to these smaller gigs, which felt like to me, a place for a special exchange with likeminded folks, have just really bummed me out.
i don't understand the hostility, or the assholes just shipwrecked in the audience telling girls, GIRLS, to "fuck off" and "shut up"
i mean, i know its just a gig but is it that hard to be civil? is it that strange to have people be on stage and be personable and nice and that not trigger automatic negative vibes?
i mean, like the truning the microphones around thing, which worked so well considering all the three part harmonies last nite, it took two seconds. and it DID sound better, because i have played shows like that. nobody got up to do it. i just alerted the soundguy so it woulnd't feedback and hurt peoples ears and then that guy had to mouth off.
and the the "shut up" stuff to GIRLS. man, if you told a girl to fuck off or shut up round my fam youd get the daylights knocked out of you.
and then the refund thread. and the "he talked the whole time...." very diluted and just bitter weirdness. i know what the set length was and how many tunes went down and it seems like every step to open myself or the band up to getting closer to the audience and we get hammered with negative creeps.
real fucking disheartening.
so, as it stands i have a choice to travel today or stay and play.
you can guess which road i am going to take. not to punish anyone.
i just seriously don't feel like being punished for wanting to share songs and stories with very agressive people. it isn't in my soul to fight to be heard or be nice.
bush hall was sweet, and the borderline, well, people were kind of policing themselves, but it was really a bummer in alot of ways to have to see that kind of shit go down.
not at all like our bedheads, who do get tanked in the states, but know they take it too far and somebody is gonna get iced.
it's really just not worth it.
but i am glad we did it, if only to spread alittle joy and for the expierence.
but i am pretty bummed out. it seemed very cut and dry to me what these shows were gonna be about anbd i guess theres a fuckface in every batch. weird that we get 10.
i think Ryan is a bit pissed (personally don't get it!):
it'd be a shame if he didn't. were you there last night as well then?
didn't mean to post that twice.
Nope, had tickets but something else came up so didn't make it. I can't tell you what i did end up doing... I would have to kill you!
bad vibes going on or something - he sounds majorly pissed off!
I do think however that he should get his head out of his arse before Sheps bush or i will end up killing myself.
You are though.
way he bitched out when Ryan had a pop at him later. Wanker.
Agreed on the crowd in borderline .I was stuck in front of the talking blokes all night.
You know, a large section of the audience made up of people who had no interest in it apart from 'being there' because it had a 'buzz' and were mates of the people that ran it so were on various lists?
was i stood near you then?
should've said hi!
you should have come and said hello, me and dan were right near each other at bush hall. yeh the bush hall one was v. friendly, borderline sounds a bit odd.
