praise the lords
well, what else could i do after a long day of webdesign conferencing than to go to a <a href="http://www.lordsofacid.com/">lords of acid</a> concert.
honestly, i can't say i've really listened to them since high school, but prasanth is a big fan. so he and a couple of other old friends from mssm all came into town for the show (Jeremy, Pete, and Scott (although Scott actually lives in nyc now)).
if you've heard the lords of acid before, you know that their music wouldn't exactly be described as 'intellectual'. but they put on an entertaining show. they had pretty much everything you'd expect: leather, latex, bullwhips, blow-up dolls (and sheep), barely dressed dancing girls, and occasional outright nudity. an all around good time.
the opening act, DJ Redboy or something sucked. first of all, it was really bad house music. i'm not really a fan of even good house. and then they pretty much didn't do anything. there was a mixing deck and turntables on stage and they were kind of hunched over them, bobbing their heads, but that was about it. we'd gotten there really late so luckily we only had to endure about 15 minutes of them. that was still way too much.
the Lords put on a pretty good show despite a small and not very excited crowd.
