That is so you can't see the poor job Manson does at acting. If you sit upfront (I was in AC) you can clearly see that the moves are 100% the same as Manson's and his body type is 100% the same. My guess is the darkness is to add to the allure.Ned finally came out and did his set, and was clearly pilled up. At one point he forgot a few lyrics in the Acid on the Tongue song. No one seemed to care, really, since Ned certainly didn't give a shit For some reason, it was really dark during Ned's set, and the spotlight seemed to be out. K5, baby. But a few dudes in front of me left during Ned's set griping that it being dark was "bullshit".
Yeah, it was cool to be able to put a face to the name. Seemed like the folks were keeping you busy saying hi, and getting tech support If you ever head back up this way, gimme a shout - I'll buy ya some lunch.It was good to meet you Jef. I had a lot of fun. The Detroit experience was great. The show has been getting better and better since I first saw it in Merrillville. The fans at the Fillmore were great. The theater was awesome. I just worry that Tara has too many guys getting "too fresh" with here
I will post more later.
The last time I was there it still was the State Theatre. I have not live in MI for 10 years so I don't know when it was changed.The Fillmore seems to be a much nicer place than it was when I was last there. I think Live Nation has been putting some money into the place, and trying to get some bigger names in. It's funny - I haven't been interested in too many shows there in quite some time, but all of a sudden this month I will be there 3 times in 8 days. (Most of the bands I tend to see play at places like Harpos, an awful heavy metal dive, but one of the few places that seems willing to have that kind of show.) It's a bit of a tight squeeze on the knees up in the cheap seats - I guess Americans were thinner AND shorter back in the 20's when the joint was built
Same for me - I spent more of the 90's living elsewhere than here. Since we came back in 2000, I hadn't been there at all. I seriously think the last show I saw there until this week was Anthrax/Public Enemy.The last time I was there it still was the State Theatre. I have not live in MI for 10 years so I don't know when it was changed.
I saw great shows there.
