PUBLIC IMAGE, LTD. (PiL)
LIVE AT THE WILLIAMSBURG HALL OF MUSIC
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK OCTOBER 9, 2012
This is by far one of the most brilliant, prolific and extremely underrated acts (luckily for me so I don’t have to share them with too many morons) of all time.
I’m alwaysannoyed by concert goers or bullshit hipsters anyway. I don’t understand how every single person on earth besides myself and my wife will only respond or dance or enjoy songs that they know. This whole stupid generation of kids is filled with the “if I don’t know the song I can’t dance to it” ideology which is terribly sad. Personally I wouldn’t go to a show of an artist who I only liked one fucking song they did. Someone dragged me to a Yes concert once “…to prove their brilliance” to me once and for all, ha ha – even bought me a ticket – I thought I was going to kill myself it was so awful, and all I did was ruin the time of their real fans because I was miserable and kept laughing at all the men in tights around me with knee-hi boots with leather fringe hanging from the side. I mean at any moment I expected fucking Unicorns to come galloping through Radio City. I learned a valuable lesson that night, so do me a favor next time. If I’m going to have to be distracted by your cell phone light out of the corner of my eye all night while you sulk and wait for John ‘Rotten’ to play the ‘Public Image theme’ or ‘Seattle’ while the band is playing their hearts out for you do me a favor just stay home next time. I don’t need you invading my concert moment. Save it for when you go see Coldplay or some other group that SUCKS ASS.
Favorite moment: The entire show
Opening act(s): NONE, thank goodness

Prior to that, Saam got to meet our hero John Lydon at J & R Music World (before the show at the Hammerstein Ballroom) and played him my video message which was apparently a first for him from a fan, and after listening to my brief message he told Saam, “…Exactly. Very well put. Why isn’t he here? Is he in PRISON?” LMFAO!
