Destroy Babylon !!!!!!!
Through the generosity of an old buddy, I will be attending the Grateful Dead's latest incarnation (Furthur) this Wednesday at good old Radio City Music Hall. I have been so far out of the loop lately that I was not even aware of this show.
So, I gotta break out the combat boots, torn jeans and Black Flag T shirt. In other words, my usual clothes. I haven't worn tie dye to a Dead show since the early 80's. The only time's I wear my tie dye is to hardcore shows.
Because I'm a contrarian.
And besides, Black Flag were freakin' Deadheads anyway.
The missus is encouraging me to get out of the house and go to the show. Says it'll be good for me to have some effed up fun. What a gal.
Of course, my patience for "happy people" will be extremely limited; and these types of shows tend to bring in STUPID FUCKING HIPPIES.
Long time readers of this here blog are aware of my openness towards intoxicants and Dead toonage. However, I have never been a fan of the Utopian bullshit of Deadheads, whether it's temporarily supplied by a hit of acid or by their trust funds.
Still, a night out is a night out. And I can certainly use one!
