Nobody loves Cupcakes anymore!

So that's 2 goddamn fucking tickets. Shit!


You did miss a thing-EXCEPT the most pitiful, waste of time and money! I will say that it was the WORST show ever. They played like the Keystone Cops. HORRIBLE. It wasn't Shane- Spider was OFF KEY, Andrew I am sure was high on sinus or allergy meds because he could not keep a beat. Just awful. I CANNOT believe they are starting with this bullshit again. Late, unprofessional and just an absolute joke. I am so angry. :evil:

So what did people think?

I thought it was a tight sow. Shane was much more much tighter than he was at the Fillmore, and seemed in a good mood. He played with the audience a bit (during Fiesta he passed his wine bottle to some guys at the barrier, letting people take a few swigs before asking for it back).

I think the only legitimate gripe people might have had about the show was how late The Pogues came on. Ted Leon and the Pharmacists finished their set around 10:15 and it wasn't until 11:15 that The Pogues took the stage. (I've been asked to pass along the band's apologies for this, and to let people know that their bus got stuck in construction traffic en route to the HoB).

The crowd seemed to be really enjoying the show, but prior to the band taking there stage there also seemed like a certain element ready to be angry (one guy yelling at Ted Leon & The Pharmacists "You suck! Get off the stage" in between songs of their set, others yelling while waiting for the band to start "Come on, you fucking rock stars! Takes your drugs on your own time!"), I was glad to note that this seemed to be a few loud exceptions and that once the show got rolling their pissyness was not at all infectious.

Also also - William Elliott Whitmore's set was really fantastic. Great presence on the stage, and great rapport with the audience. The audience really seemed to love him. I find it rare when the crowd shouts at an opening act "Two more songs!"

Great to hear after the ill comments from "Guest" on the other thread.

Maybe "Guest" imagined he would be able to close his eyes and not be able to distinguish the live show from the studio recordings done 20+ years ago and thus was disappointed.

Who can say? I don't know where Guest was in the venue. Maybe the sound was complete arse there. Or maybe Guest was expecting a big production-style show, ala Brittney, Madonna, etc. Maybe Guest's expectations were just entirely incorrect for the show.

I do know that I had a good time, and that much of the crowd also seemed to be enjoying themselves.

I personally thought the show last night was excellent. We saw them last sunday at the Fillmore as well and we all agreed that they performed better at the HOB show. We did have to wait quite a while for them to come on stage (much longer than usual) but it ended up being worth it in the end. I don't know why guest had such a bad time last night.. Perhaps he had never been to a pogues show and didn't know what to expect?

Where to begin to express my COMPLETE and TOTAL disgust at last night’s performance? Exactly when did 8 to 10 adult MEN forget how to tell time? Probably the same time they forgot how to play instruments they have had for over 20 years. I cannot believe with a night off they could come out and be that worthless. Taking the stage an HOUR LATE with no apology is just unacceptable. I really thought the band were through with pulling these bullshit, head up the ass stunts. It was just HORRIBLE. It was not just Shane. THERE IS PLENTY OF BLAME TO GO AROUND! Spider was just gross. His clothes were a wrinkled (I think he slept in them). The rest of the band looked just as haggard. Unless when they were in San Diego helping at the shelter sites there is no excuse for the way they all looked. Is it too much for you respect for the fans and look as if you had the taken a shower and wear clean clothes? From minute one it was like the band was auditioning for a reality TV show about an undiscovered group trying to get a record deal and were rejected in the first round. They never got a rhythm going. There was CONSTANT tuning the instruments, everyone trying to get on the same page and FAILING. Spider’s lead vocals on Tuesday Morning were horrid. I was shocked at Terry Woods faltering on Young Ned of the Hill. SHAME ON YOU, Terry. Andrew needs to pull his head out of his ass and find a beat, isn’t that the drummers JOB? I am so through. LOSERS!

We did have an iron once. Jem was most particular about it. Can't remember what happened to it.

What the fuck is up with this stupid cunt. You sound like a complete ass, shut the fuck up and stop complaining. I'm sorry The Pogues personal hygeine and appearance wasn't up to your standards.

:roll: This is just a stupid idiotic post. I enjoy reading this forum also because there is no sucking up around here. It is always possible to criticise the band or a performance but then at least let there be a valid reason..
Wrinkled clothes? WTF! And at first complaining about out of key and the next time about tuning?? :?

I've heard Fake That are back together and performing, stick to to your roots buddy!
