RE: JBC SEATTLE SUMMARY AND WHY YOU SHOULD BOYCOTT THE CROCODILE CAFE

Here's the thing about the assholes.....they were definitely JBC fans: they knew all the songs and all the lyrics and were shouting out requests all night. My impression of them is that they were witless morons who listened to JBC over the years only picking up the references to heavy drinking and totally missing the wit and subtlety. I have no doubt they thought they were every bit as clever as Pat and Max.
>From what I could tell there 3 of them. The crowd did try to stop
them....but who can stop a determined drunken idiot?
As for the band.....awesome. One great moment of between-song banter...Pat recounting some playground humiliation as a kid:
kid: Ya know your dad? Pat: Yeah kid: He drives with his brakes on.

Subject: re: JBC SEATTLE SUMMARY AND WHY YOU SHOULD BOYCOTT THE CROCODILE CAFE These are the things that mystify me. Why the Hell would 5 assholes show up at a Jazz Butcher show anyway? Anyone I've ever met who was into the JBC was always the coolest type of person. What was the the problem - Korn and Limp Bizkit weren't in town?
