Hahahahahaha... this show was funny... especially at how Pitt was HYPED about seeing the Psychedelic Furs. Surprisingly, they sounded really good... and it was very strange seeing Mr. Butler sober and actually SMILING!!! WTF? Anyways, we had some free tickets for this show courtesy of Balcony Lights, Thank you very much, so we all met at the Club House... had some drinks... and drove to the H.O.B., which is within walking distance of our nest. We hung around outside the H.O.B., feeding the slots, and I was laughing at how many people were just giving away tickets for this show. If you ever have nothing better to do, try hanging around the entrance of the H.O.B. and scamming free tickets for the nights show. We all walked into the H.O.B.. and quickly found our way to the bar. As soon as we got our drinks, the Psychedelic Furs started playing from behind the closed curtain, and a big roar went up from the crowd as everyone recognized the opening song Love My Way. The band proceeded to play all the hits... a few obscure ones... and although they never played Pitt’s request of I Just Want To Sleep With You, they did play mostly what the crowd wanted to hear... Pretty In Pink... Mr. Jones... President Gas... Here Come Cowboys... etc. They sounded good. I was seriously amazed at how Richard Butler was acting on stage. Long gone are the days of him being all drunk and stumbling around and forgetting the words... what a trip. I’m glad for him. He looked like he was having fun up there. As I was standing there laughing at how silly everyone was looking while rocking out to the band (one dude was throwing up GANG SIGNS !!!), who do I run into but Talitha, a friend that I haven’t seen in like 7 years... wowsers... was she a sight for sore eyes. Once Pretty In Pink was over, so was the show pretty much, so we left to go grub some 99 cent breakfast and to practice. It was an OK show, but only cuz we didn’t pay for it... HA !
