I went and saw one of my favorite bands this past weekend, Cursive. They were great. Of course. How could they not be? Played some old stuff, played some new stuff.
Tim even removed his pants. He had long underwear on underneath his quite dapper slacks so he wasn’t standing on stage in underpants. Though that would have been fun!
Things were going along fine. Standing next to normal people when all the sudden a girl comes up with a shot glass. She wasn’t a bartender. She was just a gal that wanted to give the band some booze. I guess that would be okay if she didn’t totally steal some other girl’s spot up front. Shortly after delivering the band her booze her boyfriend came up to stand with her. He was a complete and total idiot. He was all hugged up behind her. One arm holding her and the other arm doing some sort of hip hop arm dance. It was odd and annoying. The man’s arm was everywhere. I told him that we weren’t at Snoop Dogg and could he please stop being ridiculous. He did for about 3 minutes. Then it was back to the business of being an idiot. So I took his picture thinking I could shame him into stopping. No dice. A long haired gentlemen behind me finally pushed him and told him to knock it off. He still didn’t stop. This man has no respect for anything. Also, I don’t think he had any idea where he was. Cursive is certainly not a hip hop act.
Anyways. The idiot aside, it was a spectacular show.
