I am still confused by some of the idiots from last night at MGMT. MGMT has clearly become way too commercial, because I was surrounded by these silly people, who made me feel ashamed to be a human.
Mr Luke Steele was beautiful, and I think that I love him. Although when he came on, most people were all quiet, some people actually left, and these dudes next to us asked us "Who the hell is this guy?" and then stared at me blankly when I explained, and then were especially confused at my enthusiasm and love declaring.
There were this group of guys who had absolutely no clue standing next to us. They threw a glow stick right at the head of this guy on the microphone who was trying to crowd control. So this security guard came storming in and threw the dude out rather violently. But they were getting so agro because MGMT hadn't come on yet, and just going psycho. It was like, where is the love? I don't understand why everyone can't just be happy and chilled out? So MGMT came out at about 9:45 and these guys started going psycho and were all oh it's finishing at 10 o'clock. I was like yes, they are going to play a 15 minute concert, and told them that it was more likely to finish around 11 or 12, and they got SO angry at that, because they honestly thought they would be leaving at 10. I actually asked them, have you even been to a concert before, because I haven't been to any where they actually started on time, and the guy yelled at me and was like EVERY CONCERT I HAVE EVER BEEN TO IN THE WHOLE WORLD HAS STARTED ON TIME. Freakin' idiots.
There was this other girl who was going psycho yelling swearing like really filthy and angry because MGMT hadn't come on yet. She seriously screeched and swore for ages and ages. Then MGMT came on, and she spent the whole time making out with her boyfriend, and talking and messaging on her phone, and literally did not look at the stage once.
There were hilarious people, who looked like they had tried to dress up exactly like MGMT, with wild headbands and capes and what not. They looked like carbon copies. But ironically the dude they were trying to emulate came out heaps casual in a tee.
Anyway, I just wanted to dance and go wild and be free and happy, but I have come to the conclusion that people can't just be happy. How did our society get so angry?
Ok, the rant is over.
MGMT were all kinds of cool. I expected them to be more wild and hippyish, but they still rocked out. In fact they are a lot more rocker than I had thought. They played all the songs pretty much as you would hear them on the album, which is good and bad at the same time. I really like when bands experiment and play things differently at gigs, because if you wanted to hear the songs exactly the same, you would just sit at home and listen to their album.
I didn't get any pictures, because I thought it would be unsafe territory for Mr Camera. So everyone you must all use your imaginations instead!
And that's the end of that chapter....
