Last night, the XX performed one of the best concerts of my life. It was sublime except for you, the liquored up frat boy in the balcony who kept screaming at Romy, one of the lead singers and guitarists of the band, to "take your clothes off!!". Was it too much for a woman to be on stage and owning the whole crowd through her sheer musical talent and not because her body?
Could you not sit down and shut up while others were the center of attention instead of you? Romy is an insanely elegant and beautiful woman but she did not deserve the demeaning catcalls that you hurled at her. If you want to tell female performers to take off their clothes please take it to a strip club. That is the only venue where that comment might be welcome.
