rock star

this time Patti said 'fuck Bush' and not a word about Ralph Nader so all in all the evening was about perfect.

thinking there was an opening act, I arrived ten minutes after the scheduled start of the show only to find the floor jammed with people and the stage all set up just exactly as it was on sunday. yippee I think. I don't have to waste good back time on a band I've never heard of and won't want to hear from again.

of course the floor was full of people and I wasn't sure I could rally enough inconsideration for others to allow me to get in front of a bunch of them but I thought oh what the hell and dived in. I made good headway until I ran into a guy that leaned on me to try to keep me from getting in the space just in front of him that I had my eye on so I leaned back and basically acted like I didn't really know he was there and squeezed by him.

moments later a few other people nudge their way through and he starts to complain about the people pushing to get to the front and how he might just leave and how it was ridiculous that it was now twenty minutes past the hour and no one was onstage yet and on and on and on and I thought about turning to him and saying you're at a rock show. deal.

when did we get so old and fussy?

Patti and her band though managed to drown out this indignant man for almost two and a half hours. I was delighted the whole time and so far my back still does not hurt. there were a few pogo-ers and I almost pogo-ed a bit myself but fearing for my knees I sort of bounced up and down on the balls of my feet.

now I want to go form my own punk rock band.
