Metal in the Media


  • Axl Rosenberg

Update, 10:44 am: Bram from Metal Insider did get into the Europa show, and recorded some footage of the band performing “We Gotta Know” with John Jospeh from Cro-Mags. Check it out after the jump!

I was supposed to see Refused live for the first time last night (I missed them in April, frowny face), but the show was outdoors, at Williamsburg Park, and it got rained out. I mean, this must be the first time in my life the ticket didn’t say “RAIN OR SHINE” on it. I’ve seen fucking Warrant play in the rain, but nnnooo, it was too much for Refused/the promoter/the venue/whomever I should be directing my rage at right now. And p.s. it was done raining by like 8/8:30 anyway so really what the fuck.

The band and their tour mates, Off!, then moved the gig to Club Europa in Greenpoint… a place which holds like a fraction of the number of people who would have seen them at Williamsburg Park. And that show was free. Needless to say, there was no way in fuck I was getting in.

So the only Refused I got to see last night was on Jimmy Fallon. And now I know: if I wanna see Refused, I don’t need nice weather, or for the guy at the door to be my eskimo brother — I just need to have been horrible on Saturday Night Live for a few years!

And here’s the vid with John Joseph:
