dude thats the hilarious indian telephone salesman
Well that was disappointing. We have been attending dinners at Abby's Table for 3+ years including hosting her dinners as MiPl events four times. We went tonight because we heard she was closing and wanted to go one last time. When we went to pay we were told that our punch card that we bought a few years ago ($180 for 10 dinners) was no longer valid (they said they sent an email in April which neither Stu nor Penny nor I remember getting). They told me the best they could do was 5% off our bill. So instead of the $45 we planned on spending we spent $71. What a way to ruin several great years of delicious dinners by refusing to honor the punch card I bought and leaving nothing but a sour taste in my mouth as their legacy.
Horrible. Snoop left his audience waiting for nearly two hours beyond his scheduled start time without an explanation, an apology, or any offers of a refund. Roseland's overzealous rent-a-cop patrol was more about nazi tactics and harrassing patrons than ensuring a safe, good time. It was a piss poor display and a hugely disrespectful way to treat people. We left when people started throwing things at the stage. From what I read, he finally showed up, did a piss poor 25-minute set and left. The Bossman lost a lot of respect and quite a few fans last night. NEVER again. Shame on you, Snoop. Marley would be so embarrassed. #snooplyin
Headless Pez are a buncha idiot assholes.
I like how this reviewer fornicated with the idea that The Killers had no great contribution to the here and now just like the article. They were great. This article? Petty and small (somehow I guess the writer isn't). Pathetic.
one of the worst audiences. Beautiful venue. Noel G's heart was not in it...I guess after 18 months of touring he couldnt be bothered to put any heart into it or the audience. One idiot right next to the stage screamed the entire show, meanwhile, 80 year old attendants were more worried about peoples IPHONES getting the Chief on video...
CHICAGO 2011 was much better and more professional
Give it a 1 out of 10.
This was hands down one of the worst presentations at TBA and in film in general. It is true; I have participated in 3-way video chat with my girlfriends- while drunk- and have felt so shocked at how base we can be to each other. However, if a group of so-called artists were to highlight this portion of our culture by doing exactly that, I would have expected more intelligence (rather than sheer stupidity the entire time), more forethought, less mockery, so much more. The presentation overall was a mockery of women. I felt that it was ageist in presentation and presented a small subset of white, middle-class, young people culture. How much more racist can a bunch of artists get than to force an audience- young, old, and multi-cultural (as multi-cultural as Portland can get)- suffer through what they think is funny. Deliberately priviledged bitches. That's who they are. If I were Hollywood Theatre I'd retract my name from any associations with Future Cinema. That was a mockery of art.
God, the Druthers are terrible!
Painful to hear and watch. Pull the teaching card
Father John Misty was great. Youth Lagoon was one of the most poorly mixed concerts I've heard.
Wow....well, I was going anyway...Sarah
It's great to have freedom of expression in the United States. That way silly pseudo-critics such as yourself can basically hang themselves with their uneducated, incorrect, unsubstantiated, unsupported and ignorant opinions. To be a true journalist, however, you need to be able to support your opinions and be able to show you have more than just the most superficial and shallow understanding of your subject matter. I hope one day you will achieve this but for now I can only laugh at you and your pompous and stupid statements. Greg Lake is a superstar, a superlative musician, a poet and founding member of two of the most influential and successful bands of the rock era. ELP was "bigger" than Led Zeppelin when both were in their prime. It's time for them to reap the respect they so richly deserve.
It wasn't that great. Over hyped.
This is a terrible show and a waste of the considerable talent onstage. The music is tepid, setting up hook after melodic hook and drifting away from them; it peters out whenever there's an emotional build and the composer always shies away from the obvious resolve at the end of the song chunks. We're given nothing to care about following a pretty interesting opening number (and the only music I remember a day later); the most interesting character turns out to be dead. Really? So many trite things in the plot that I can't even begin to catalog them. Certainly the worst thing I've seen at ART. Good people wasting their time on excrement.
Did they ever come out on stage? The front door didn't open till 8:45 PM and they still had not come on stage by 10:30 PM. 2 friends waited another 30 minutes and still no show. Who do I contact to get my money back?
Only in the most ridiculous sketches on Portlandia would the name "Black Pussy" be considered a "silly name." Adding to the fact that these shows are occurring on black history month, the insult is beyond outrageous, but I'm sure this juvenile band loves the attention. Send them back to their elementary school principal, and try again on the name.
Has Sallie learned to sing yet, or is she still gargle-screaming about the band's tub-thumps?
I had seen EDtM in Seattle in 2010 and it was fantastic so I was really looking forward to the Portland production last summer. I was sorely disappointed. The first problem was that none of the actors could sing. Oh, one or two of them were passable, but the rest couldn't carry a tune. The song "Good Old Reliable Jake" would have been funny if the joke was that Jake couldn't hit a single note, but it wasn't played that way.
The splatter zone was a joke. Rather than being sprayed by blood from the stage or from the actors, there were a couple of assistants wandering the splatter zone with plant misters. Why bother?
Inexplicably, this production used canned music. Why would you do that in Portland? You can find talented musicians everywhere you look in this city.
All in all it was a waste of $25 and I would recommend that everybody avoid the Portland production if it's being put on by the same troop.
Horrible! $4 wasted. I didn't know they could gather that much over priced crap in one location. A crappy tool box from the 70s with a few wrenches that where worthless back in the 1950s for $250! That is just one of the things offered by professional junk sellers at this event. It is not even a grarage sale as they advertise because it's vendors trying to sell you total garbage...er "antiques". The should rename it Portlands largest GARBAGE sale.
