"Not even kidding. lou reed watched @dasracist perform tonight & flipped the fuck out. at carnegie hall. how was your night?" - El-P

Tibet House Concert 2012 - Carnegie Hall
Tibet House Concert 2012 - Carnegie Hall

"The night wrapped up with Lenny Kaye leading the Patti Smith band through a brief tribute to the garage-rock compilation Nuggets, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and Lou Reed, who performed three songs. Reed conducted the string quartet and the drummer to improvise with him at moments, which felt awkward in the beginning; the ending, however--as the string quartet jammed in tandem with Smith's guitarists and Reed himself--was pretty impressive. At the very end Laurie Anderson and the whole evening's cast returned to the stage for a curtain call, during which the room sang "Happy Birthday" to Philip Glass." [Village Voice]

So Das Racist are too stupid and disrespectful to realize and american flag should not touch the ground? Or is disrespecting your country a method of protesting shit that doesn't actually affect these fucking retards who are making plenty of money?

Das Racist was included here why again exactly? The opportunities that come to these talentless, arrogant clowns baffles me.

Posted by anon | February 14, 2012 5:06 PM

I've seen the bumper stickers, I have seen the shirts, I hear about all these concerts and shit. But let me ask you... what the fuck has ANY of this done Tibet?

It's mindblowing. How the fuck do you manage to get written up in Spin magazine by the brother of one of your members? What talentless fucking hacks. They're the LMFAO of the Brooklyn hype machine.

Hey Brooklyn poseur, everyone was really there to see YOU. Your body of work is so impressive, much more than these other lame artists. Great to read your comments, since you are such an established artist and critic. By the way, your check from Mom and Dad arrived today - they put in a bit more than usual.

Nice venue.

Assholes. Don't let the flag touch the ground. Stupid fucks.

As much as I hate our Government, and the corporatocracy that it has become, I still love this country, and I believe the flag still stands for something.

8:24, I am so with you on that one. These fucking pussies act like it'd be better to live under the tyranny of that cunt Che Guavara and piss and moan about the US, but, literally, what the fuck has the US done to these twerps that has them so fucking careless? I guess it's because their parents gave them no boundaries or sense of reality and so it is easy to take their fucking pampered lives for granted.

What the fuck does this have to do with Linsanity?

Das Racist were the one horrible act last night.
The highlight was obviously Antony and Laurie together.

Lou Reed played 3 songs and the first was Ecstasy

I hope that Tibet remains under the jackboot of the filthy reds.

the flag is a rag. it stands for murder, oppression, racism, imperialism and IGNORANT nationalism.

CHE GUEVARA, on the other hand, was a TRUE revolutionary, a man of vision. a man whose ideas and influence will live forever.

patriots truly are assholes.

8:15 is an ignorant buffoon. Sadly, he/she isn't aware of this.

Posted by Anonymous | February 15, 2012 8:22 AM

8:15am wouldn't know revolution if it bit his micro penis.

I'm sure you have one of those stupid Che t-shirts in your closet. Che was a scumbag, as are all commie "revolutionaries". Go talk to someone who lived in Eastern Europe during communism and ask them how great it was. Or why people floated to this country on rafts to get away from communism. You wouldn't last one minute in that environment and you sure as hell wouldn't have the freedom to spew your stupid rhetoric like you do here. Your hero Che would put a bullet in your skull if you didn't agree with him and his "vision". Great person to admire you clueless upper class over educated twit.

Tell a Marine to his face that the flag is a rag. He'd toss you around like a fucking rag doll. Of course that'll never happen though, because just like every pseudo revolutionary you got no fucking balls.

marines aren't fit to clean che guevara's boots.

and it took the cia to track him down and murder him. so brave!

viva la revolucion!!!

If Che Guevara did his serial killing in Texas, we would have executed him a lot sooner. And we would have made it a state holiday, so the kids could watch the fucker fry like bacon.

Well, you win some and some you gotta work for. No matter, we'll find the rest of the terrorists too. Like Whack-A-Mole.

Commies + Imperialists, there are bad bastards on both sides.

I find solace in the fact that Che cried and pleaded for his life before they rightfully riddled his pussy ass with bullets. RIP Tyrant Scum! I wish you were alive to get a taste of the royalties from suckers using your image for fashion (oh the irony)
