Peter Murphy & Modwheelmood @ Highline Ballroom – pics

There was one absolutely insane (not in the fun way, but in the clinical way) woman who was clearly drunk and stumbled up behind us and kept calling up to the stage demanding attention.
Crazy-Lady: Peter! It’s Leslie [turning back towards us] I know him, he remembers me.
Crazy-Lady: Peter! You have to help me, Peter! They’re going to kill me!
I am not making this shit up!
She started making weird shapes with her hands like she was casting spells, and kept holding out her hand to Peter and the guitarist, cupped as if she was demanding an offering from them.
When Peter shook hands with everyone standing near the stage, Crazy Leslie tried to get his attention again:
Crazy-Lady: Peter, it’s Leslie! You remember me, Peter!
Peter Murphy: I’m sorry, I’m sure I don’t remember you. [Nymphean]
Since there was no Nine Inch Nails show last night (they start back up again in Chicago tonight) and I didn’t want to go a day without a Peter Murphy post, I was glad to remember that we had this unused set of pictures in the reserve from one of Peter’s July shows at Highline Ballroom in NYC (they may or may not be from the show Leslie was at) (actually, Leslie was probably at both).
