Story on gigwise
she aint that scary!!
but she needs an attitude adjustment.
Unfortunately they were first on the bill and there were only three people in the audience anyway.
they used the exact same words as Tori
There are way too many cunts at gigs these days. I don't know whether to blame the seeming abundance of guestlist passes/corp ent tickets that ensure that a sizeable minority have no interest in the band performing, the fact that going to gigs has become 'cool' even for people who have never previously gone to gigs and may well be there for appearances sake rather than because they want to be or the fact that so many twats like to get drunk in public and inflict their non-personalities on those around them.
She did the right thing.
The last time I saw this happen was at Southampton Guildhall, September 2006. Jurassic 5 threw a pair of chavs out of the show for repeatedly ignoring requests that they stop throwing lit cigarettes about in the crowd.
what were they supposed to be doing? She's fucking appalling. I can't think when I sat through two minutes of music that bad of my own free will before
I think she is right
you cant get up at a gig to go to the bog/go for a smoke or what ever? thats ridiculous, fair enough it might have been a little annoying but i dont think it deserves a chucking out. they had paid money liek everyone else to be at the gig. its not an army drill its a gig!! we dont have to sit in ranks and not move
nobody is suggesting that you shouldn't be allowed to go to the toilet or go to the bar, etc, but, not during every song.
at the theatre or during a classical gig, Mr Ciderland is right, there are far too many fuckards at shows - we had to endure some at PJ Harvey at Somerset House who kept shouting at everyone for not being into it, then talking with her chatty beer guzzling mates during every song... ditto the kids that paid to see death cab and then ignored them... that sort of twat seems recurrent across town these days...
Fistyness is right, of course you're allowed to get up for the toilet/fag break, but can't you wait/get it out of your system before the show? I remember two people at the front at a Leafcutter John gig were talking throughout his set, so he held a mic to them, sampled their conversation and turned it into a track :-D
that's ace...were they embarrassed?
Tori Amos is fucking awful. If I was them I just would have shat where I was sitting, and probably, nay, definitely, hurled it at her.
Grockle and Tori Amos. Mmmm...
I think they were surprised once they realised their conversation was being looped and changed in pitch. They left soon after that. It was so cool seeing someone handle that sort of situation so well, and in quite a unique manner.
putting aside what you think of Tori Amos's music what is you actual opinion? Obviously if you think she's shit you wouldn't be at the gig, but you'd presume that people who are there like her stuff and can cope with listening to it for more than two minutes at a time.
I really like that.
