I wonder if this is going to be one of those ones where he reveals it's all fake and they're all actors
the only good bit was when she was like 'are you excited for two door cinema club' and someone was like 'oh yeah i actually really like two door cinema club' and the audience laughed at what a HIPSTER poser they were for PRETENDING to like a MADE UP band. Stupid fucking audience.
Tbh i can imagine if someone puts you in front of a camera and is like 'are you looking forward to x thing that i've put you in front of the camera to ask you about' youre at least a bit likely to be like 'oh yeah they're great, looking forward to it...', especially if drunk.
Same as when they did it with Chelsea fans and most of them said 'oh yeah, don't think we've seen enough of him yet to really judge' and everyone was like AHAHAH HE DOESN'T EVEN EXIST, you're gonna at least say *something* when put on the spot after a few beers aren't you.
of course they're going to try and sound like the press
daytime shows are usually free, you can pay into a lot of the evening ones on the door, and if you know someone playing you can score a much cheaper wristband that gets you access to basically everything (that's what i did in 2009, $150 vs $600 for a pass).
sxsw is fun. much funner than making fun of idiots.
that if someone just made up some band name and said "this band are playing, what do you think of them" I'd A. probably believe that it was a real band, cos why not? and B. might think I'd heard of them before/they might vaguely remind me of another band name. So I'd probably end up saying "I think I've heard of them, don't think I've heard any of their stuff".
just sort of mumble yeah they're alright/something non committal
just makes it seem like she's asking them to justify why they're there, and it looks like they're reacting to that more than anything. most of them look really nervous :(
Obviously the power of the camera is to make people drop their guard, but I still reckon if confronted by those band names I'd call them out, or at the very least admit I'd never heard of them
by saying they'd do the same. Its a ridiculous thing to do. Just say youve never heard of them, its fine.
in situations where it seemed so taken for granted that you should have heard of the thing that it would draw potentially embarrassing attention to admit never having heard of the thing (like the time one of my friends had never heard of che guevara. i think i'm generally reasonably well-informed about the world, but i do have an ever-present fear of one day betraying an appallingly obvious gap in my general knowledge and turning out to be that person who's never heard of che guevara)
but yeah pretending to actually be a fan of bands that you haven't heard of seems like a dangerous move in which you're only going to get caught out. even if they were real, they could turn out to be fucking terrible and destroy your carefully crafted reputation for impeccable taste
i would probs end up responding with 'er yeah that name sounds familiar but i haven't actually listened to them soz!!!!!'
'i don't know that band' isn't a hard thing to say guys
