Holy crap! Can't you see how excited they are? We saw Throbbing Gristle at the Brooklyn Masonic Hall. Sean and I missed the first show because we were on tour, but we made it to the second one. It was amazing. Our only complaint was that the crowd was very mellow and security was way uptight. Everyone was pretty much motionless aside from one couple. The boyfriend was clearly on acid and the girlfriend seemed like she was using that as an excuse to totally let go too. They hollered and yelled and danced and immediately were engaged by Genesis. Unfortunately security carted out the dude, not sure why, and I assume his girl left with him.
We scored a really great spot in the very front to the right. I was wedged in between the stage and a speaker next to a very happy San Franciscan who was dancing his ass off and filming a big portion of the show.
Because of my position the photos were pretty much exclusively of Genesis. The others didn't even come out. Bummer, but still, she's a showstopper.
It's a little blurry but this awesome tiny girl stood next to me for a while. She was wearing an American flag leotard and a pair of old Levi's cut-offs. The tattoo on her arm says, "Love Me Like a Reptile".
It was a good night.
