Ah…popscene. It’s a 10p on Thursday night tradition for some.
As we wait in line, we, for the second night in a row, are behind superfan. He’s wearing the shirt, he’s been to all the shows, he knows it all.
Let me start by saying that DJ Omar is the shit. It’s as if he hijacked my itunes library or something.
Popscene is always great for people watching. The fashion is hilarious, the attitudes as well. There was also someone else watching that night- some cameras were roaming around videotaping the party.
I’m only casually familiar with VHS or Beta. I found out from superfan that they are from Kentucky…hmmm. Anyway, they take the stage at 11:30 and start their set. A song or two in, they are plagued by some technical issues and some cranky fans. The lead singer announces that the purpose of this show is to play mostly new songs, and the crowd is noticeable upset. Two nights in a row- how different could the circumstances be, but the similarities kept happening.
I’d have to say that I liked their dancey stuff best. Some bands can pull off both rock and dance, but I’m not sure these guys can. Perhaps better equipment would help.
Back to DJ Omar….please play a bad song so we can go home. 7 songs later…we trudge out the door, both tired and hyped up for our flight to Vegas in the morning.
