Funny Facebook Post of the Week

The show was good, but almost no one showed up…Architect / Worms of the Earth.

Andrea E. Menzies If Daniel Myer were playing in downtown LA, New York, or Austin, TX I would be worried it would be a sold out show. But not here in Richmond land. It was like 30 people tops. In Texas when Assemblage 23 played the fire marshal had to kick people out because they overbooked the show so badly people could not breath.

Andrea E. Menzies Oh well at least we were still a stop on the tour, and the tickets were cheap.

More on the Covenant and De/vision show.

My review of the Covenant and De/vision show:

Covenant and De/vision remains the best show I have seen in years.  It has a light show and sound system that takes you out of this world. You will see visions of parallel universes as you dance in epic ways. Covenant and De/vision played at the Red Eye Fly and Elysium this weekend in Austin, TX.  One wrist band got you into both events, tickets were available online in advance at the Secret Oktober store in the South Austin area.  As music crossed the ocean in in epically new ways at the dawn of the Matrix style world of the 90s Internet, Covenant and De/vision were pioneers and headliners in the electronic music world.  They will always have a special place in my heart, even if the song Dead Stars got so over-played some people would go on screaming sprees if they heard it one more time.  Their show has lost no energy over the years, and is filled with a powerhouse sound. The Covenant lead singer touched my arm three times as I sat by the bathroom door at the show.  I am still thrilled by it.

One down side of the show, was that promoters were trying to make it a two day event.  Everyone wanted to be associated with the big headliner acts that packed the venues like sardines.  Most of Facebook mentioned afterward the first day was filled with more than a bit of melodrama.  I hear some hip-hop guys tried to start a fight by the dance show.  Synthpop and goth guys wearing make-up, styled up hair, and corsets are NOT there to fight your man-hood.  Some people say that since some goths and industrial types wear white make-up that it is not multicultural, and all the people into it are super-white Eurotrash.  This mythology is NOT true.  At the show the last few people I hugged goodbye were a Mexican-American person, a Chinese guy, and a person of Philippine decent.  It was seriously NOT an Anglos-only social event by any stretch of the imagination.  There is a Facebook page that I am on called “Black Goth Girls” and it has many thousands of people who post, and follow the group.  Warning: you may be alienating yourself from MANY attractive single girls if you are a guy starting fights at a goth dance concert.

The concert was a success despite drawing in the haters.  There will always be some people out there who try to start trouble at every turn.  If you are lucky enough to be on one of the tour dates Covenant and De/vision have not yet played, you should make it out to the show.  I will download their MP3s on Amazon.com music service with renewed energy after this great music event.
