Nice khakis, brah.

I just got back from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs show. I had a wonderful time. It was Hell getting a ticket, but it was worth it.

That being said, when did the 9:30 Club become so evil? Charging $6 for a 12oz beer? Really? I mean, come on. That's ridiculous. I actually did a double take when I ordered a Boddington's and the bartender told me that was going to set me back eight (!) dollars. I always thought the rules of supply and demand would never apply to alcohol since I was always in demand of it. But the 9:30 Club proved me wrong. You can actually charge so much for booze that I don't want it anymore.

This only augmented my anger towards the 9:30 Club. They totally botched the distribution of Yeah Yeah Yeah tickets. Here I am, a fan of the band, trolling Craig's List looking for some help getting into the show. Who got the tickets? The tickets I wanted? The tickets I convinced myself I deserved? Hipsters? No.

Fuckin' Yeah-Dudes.

Example #1: The guy in the New York Yankees (aka BALCO East) shirt who was spraying his Miller Lite at his comrades. What a pleasure it was to see him making shadow puppets while the opening band, Blood on the Wall (who were good), was playing. What an inconsiderate asshole. He almost made my night.

Almost.

I say, almost, because Example #2 was my all-time favorite jackass. He had the uniform down pat. Full yeah-dude regalia. Sandals. Khaki shorts. A tight black shirt. A goofy, shit-eating grin. He was a silly hat away from having his yeah-dudeness implode the universe.

But the clincher! Oh, the sweet, sweet clincher. He was drinking Guinness. A Guinness...wait for it, wait for it....

A Guinness straight out of the can.

ROFL LOL LMAO HAHALAHJV]V

What a fucking tool. I sincerely hope, somewhere down the road, I run into him again. He was an absolute pleasure.

    THAT SHIT IS NOT ROCK IT IS GARBAGE

    HOW DOES IT FEEL TO LIVE IN AN ERA WHERE THE MUSICAL LANDSCAPE IS TOTAL COMPLETE DISPOSABLE TRASH?

    FUTURE GENERATIONS WILL LOOK BACK AT THE MUSIC OF TODAY AND LAUGH THEIR ASSES OFF AT HOW MUCH IT SUCKED

    NOSTALGIA FOR TODAY'S HIPSTERS AND THEIR HOMO ROCK WILL BE NONEXISTENT AND HIPSTER BASHING WILL BE COMMON PLACE

    SAME GOES FOR HIP HOP AND R&B MUSIC OF TODAY

    BUT REGARDLESS OF THE MUSIC BEING TRASH AT LEAST YOU ENJOYED YOURSELF AT THE CONCERT AND IN THE END THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS

  8. Well, now you got me worried that I might be a tool. In college, I always detested the (I guess you could call them) "jocks" who wore the silly white baseball caps but since when do sandals and kacki shorts (as opposed to jean capris) become so bad? And you gotta wear a tight black shirt to show off the guns, right? Jesus.

    How does a hipster dress?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Khaki shorts are acceptable as long as you don't have a shit-eating grin and/or drive a Jeep. Sandals are never acceptable unless you're at a DMB concert (and if you're at a DMB concert, we're presented with a whole 'nother set of problems).

    As for hipsters, I refuse to speak for or of them.

  11. The dove shadow puppet was awful...as was the fact that said shadow-puppet-master kept trying to hand his drink to people at varying intervals throughout the show. Nobody accepted, so I think he ended up drinking his own roofies last night.

    whats wrong with sandals? what about the sandals of the adidas variety when you're too lazy to tie up sneakers/shoes? I think sneakers with shorts is wack. It's just not "deck."

    Let me vomit now.

    Good.

  14. What I would like to see is today's Yeah Dude travel back in time to meet a Yeah Dude of the 90's. How would he react to the Stussi shirts and Chumbawumba?

  17. Oh God, those Addidas sandals are awful--anyone wearing them should get taken out by the gay mafia in Dupont Circle. But I hate the sneaks w/ shorts, too. Get some clogs, damnit.

    I think if today's Dude met Dude of Yesteryear he'd admire the dude's "vintage" jeep. I actually recall seeing five guys wearing white baseball caps cruising along our campus in a... Jeep. And yes, they actually said "yeah, dude."

  21. Anonymous,

    Let's go out sometime. You can buy the drinks and I will plug a $20 in the jukebox and blast Led Zeppelin's Lemon Song all night long.

  25. If you are always in demand of alcohol, shouldn't the price go up?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yes.

    The point is I never thought a club would take it so far that I am no longer in demand of alcohol.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Blood on the Wall fucking rule. I now hate you more than ever, Rusty.

    Just kidding.

  28. What is a hispter? I have decided that a hipster is this: anyone who has more friends in the city than you.

    Period.

  30. I like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and I'm far from a hipster. I guess we should all listen to garage rock and wear jeans and t-shirts all of the time. Diversity is not a bad word.

  31. Hey anonymous (= loser wuss), lose the CAPS LOCK key and instead of just yelling how all of today's music sucks, tell us what you like. So what is it, music-critic-buddy? Miss those heady days when Foreigner, Bad Company, Pat Benetar, and Molly Hatchet ruled the musical landscape? Or maybe Duran Duran and Elton John was more your style? Ooh, guess not if you don't like "homo rock."
