Just A Complaint and Casual Cruelty

What a toss. If I wanted to go watch Mercury Rev while they were in the country, I would have to toss ninety bucks up to go and see the Finn Brothers at the Opera House, since Mercury Rev are opening for them.

The Finn Brothers bore me. Always have. The drummer's suicide wasn't enough.

You're being deliberately provocative, aren't you. *lol*

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa! Whoa!

Do. Not. Knock. The. Super. Finn. Brothers.

Granted I would've wanted to see Mercury Rev at their own gig but it's The Finns. So there's no way in the world that I can see where you're coming from. :)

Anyway, I'll let Jonathan and Grasshopper know that you're disappointed when I see them play from my seat in the 2nd row.

the worse part of them being an opening gig, i might add, is that they won't sound as good as the finn brothers--and it's not like the finn brothers need to sound good.

still, i hope they're good.

Funnily enough, he says, not taking the bait, we're in the exact opposite boat. In order to see the Finns at the Burswood theatre in Perth next week, we have to sit through an hour of interminable drivel from Mercury Rev, the most overrated band in the world, first. ;)

you could always arrive afterwards.

though personally, i don't like to do that. there's a couple of times i've seen opening acts that haven't been so impressive to me before, and been quite impressed. so i always go.

Hm, interestingly enough, in order to go to the Opera House Studio on the 12th, 13th, 15th or 16th of July I'd unfortunately have to see Mercury Rev (overrated boring boring boring) and the Finn Brothers (boring boring boring since the first Crowded House album at best - Split Enz did rule...)

hell why don't we all just sit in a bar and mumble and grumble together and quite possibly belt the crap out of each other as well as we defend our respective musical tastes. i'm sure that will be more fun than any life changing musical gigs ;)
