Last night's Monotonix show was actually excellent. It was an interesting setting, and they took full advantage of the room.
Playing half of the set on top of the bar to your immediate
left upon entering. The bartenders were shooting their soda
guns at the crowd. It was kinda epic.

Damn it. Fiasco makes me so much less excited for Ponytail. They're playing first, I assume?

Major Lazer after party is in your toilet bowl next to this mornings unflushed shit which is exactly what their music sounds like ironically.

Just had drinks at a bar near MSG. That KISS crowd is something to see. Bad taste and lack of self-awareness is quite a combination.

Whenever there's a show at as big a place as MSG, there are bound to be assholes in the crowd. However the crowd around me at the show tonight was a lot better than the people at an average indie show. Everybody was listening to the music and having a good time. At Bowery Ballroom most times there are more people chatting than listening. Overall it was a good old fashioned fun rock'n'roll show. I'd say you have bad taste and you don't know it.

Ponytail killed it at Bell House! Great set, great crowd energy.

Still can't get into that tune they opened with though.
Build up always sounds amazing but when the 8bit robo-tone kicks in it's sorta deflating. Still, that little criticism aside, terrific show.

will be happy to be proved wrong with this one.... but having done survival training during my Army days, I have to admit to a raised eyebrow with this as well.
