Dallas = Wienerville and Beck = Great


Dallas is officially wienerville. There are many other ways to say it, but that one is somewhat politically correct.

I could not believe how many people did NOT lose their minds at the Beck show last night. Granted it was Wednesday, but c'mon. I was there in the pit with buddies Mike, Zack, and Thomas and the lame Dallas crowd could not get excited. What is the point of going to see someone like Beck if you're not going to dance and jump around? Have you heard a Beck song?

Anyway, the whole "I am too cool for jumping around during E-Pro because I don't want chicks to see me look crazy" is gross. Suck it up Dallas. All of you German sedan/Tahoe driving little yuppites need to get a clue. You are in a state of suck, you will have to work hard to overcome it.

On a positive note, Beck was tremendous. Marionettes, Dinner Party Percussion Half Hour, Fighting Guys in Bear Costumes, Lots of Hits, and a token Dancing Dude. He is truly unique as an artist in America. Next time, maybe I'll actually get to see him in front a crowd more focused on the music than whether the token Dallas girl next to them will think them uncool by showing any excitement or slight movement of the hips during a particularly funky Beck breakdown.

Reminds me of the Muse show I went to a year back. Muse f-ing rocks and play some sick jams... how can you not want to jump around and scream? I think Trey and I were the only idiots going nuts...
