A Recurring Nightmare

Filed under: Music — The Professor @ 8:43 pm

I know you have all been waiting for my review of the Social D show in Asheville, NC on Wednesday.  Well, not all of you, maybe:  commenter Green as Grass wrote to say that the bands I like sound “bloody awful.” De gustibus non est disputandum, Green.

The show was good.  This was the seventh time I’ve seen Social D, and they lived up to their previous standards.  The set list was quite different, with several songs that I haven’t heard live before.  Mike Ness was basically all business, and didn’t engage in a lot of patter this time.

The funniest part of the evening relates to one of my experiences when I went to the Social D show in Asheville in November, 2010.  (The band has played in Asheville twice . . . I’ve made both shows.)  At the 2010 show, there was a girl next to me with “Nightmare” tattooed on the back of her neck, and “Goth Bitch” tattooed across the knuckles of her hands.  So who was standing in front of me in line to get into the show? A girl with “Nightmare” tattooed on the back of her neck, and “Goth Bitch” tattooed on the knuckles of her hands.  I wonder.  Could it have been the same person?  I surely remembered her, but I don’t think she recognized me: of course, I am totally lacking in any memorable tattoos.  But at a Social D show, that should make me memorable.

And in case you are wondering . . . I didn’t come across any motorcyclists sprawled in the middle of the street on the way back to my parents’ house.  Totally uneventful ride home.

Here are a couple of shots from the show.  I was pretty close to the front, right on the edge of the mosh.

  2. @Green. There is a painting in my study that looks like that. I haven’t aged a bit since it was painted.

  3. Keep pissing in the wind. NSA would never share kompromat on you with the Obamanoids. At least when they blackmail you over your porn collection you can blame Greenwald.

  5. PS your Congressman Ted Poe called. He gave a speech on the House floor today denouncing the National Surveillance Agency. So it would appear your opinion is in the minority even within your own district, Professor. “the government spooks are drunk on power”. Rep. Poe also blows your argument that gathering a billion calls data per day can in any way shape or firm be justified by the Patriot Act or FISA courts which were intended for specific cases not mass indiscriminate surveillance.
