TOP TEN THINGS WE HEARD HIPSTERS SAY AT ALL POINTS WEST THAT WE’D NEVER HEAR AT A REGULAR TOOL SHOW

520

This past Saturday night, Vince and Axl bought tickets to hipster-douche fest All Points West with the express purpose of seeing Tool and Tool only. There was a serious and very visible divide in the crowd – namely, other metalheads vs. people who think Interpol is cool  – and your MetalSucks editors were privy to some pretty funny dialogue as a result:

  1. “I think they’re called, like, ‘Tools?'”
  2. <robot voice>”Intergalactic, planetary. Planetary, intergalactic.” </robot voice>
  3. Beat-boxing.
  4. “Gogol Bordello are awesome.”
  5. “Please don’t block my view of the stage.”
  6. “There won’t be any moshing. Look at all that mud! No one wants to get dirty.”
  7. “Where are the fried Oreos?”
  8. Scowling at Axl’s Slayer shirt.
  9. Scowling at Vince’s Paganfest shirt.
  10. “What’s that smell?”

No matter; Tool kicked major ass anyways. It’s like there’s an unspoken agreement between the band and their fans: “You bring the weed. We’ll bring the lasers.”

Here’s Tool at All Points West on Saturday night, performing with special guest drummer Frank Ferrer of Guns N’ Roses fame.
