Ministry, Thrill Kill, und Hanzel und Gretyl - My Razored Flesh — LiveJournal
Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress
Ministry, Thrill Kill, und Hanzel und Gretyl
Saw Ministry tonight.

The show opened with Hanzel Und Gretyl, who totally rocked. I really liked them. (Unfortunately, doing further research on them, they are not a german band) :(
Anyway, they sounded german. We watched them from the balcony at the Vic.

Then came Thrill Kill, so we movede downstairs, got about half way to the mosh pit and stopped, they were playing alot of their old classics, but the music levels were off, and the lead singer was totally wasted, so his singing wasn't the best.

Then, finally Ministry was coming up, and we managed to get to the pit, while we were waiting, we saw Val and Dreg from Fashion Bomb, in one of the VIP balconies, Val was with some cute blonde, they waved to us and we waved back.

Ministry came on and the crowd surged forward and I waws doing my best to keep the moshers off elspethnoir. Got my ankle stomped a few times, it's all swollen.

Anyway, Ministry rocked! They played a mix of new and old songs. Then they came out with a bottle of Champagne, sparklers, and a birthday balloon, it was Al Jogensen's birthday, and the whole audience sang for him. He was visibly touched, opened the champagne and showered the crowd with it.

Near the end of the show, Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedy's joined Al on stage, and sang a few songs, in between rants. We got tired of Jello Biafra singing after 4 songs, so we left.

Oh, and I loved Al's tshirt, it said 'FUCK BUSH'

Prevailing Condition: tired tired

It's still a little swollen, but I can get around with it. I just have to remember, when I am sitting not to cross my ankles. *ouch*

For the most part I did. So, I feel it was worth the money.

Yeah, I remember Hanzel und Gretyl from about 7 or 8 years ago. They used to play at the bar I was doing show at in Clinton Iowa. They rocked back then even though most of the people that were there back then didnt really care for them. Plus most people just sat there looking at them funny. I havent seen them or talked to them since then though. Would have been kinda cool to see them again.

Turns out someone I know had 2 extra tix and didnt call me. He was supposed to if hiw "date" fell through. Eh, oh well, dont need to spend any money right now anyways.

We ran into that someone at the show. He was there by himself. His date wasn't there, because he said she did not like Ministry. We found out later that she was upset that he didn't invite her to go.

I heard that she was there. If its the same her. I was a little disappointed when I heard that he ended up not taking anyone. Eh, oh well. Hes kinda like that. Young and "in charge." He does as he wants and thats about that. I remember those days. It was a long time ago in a distant mindset when I was going to take over the world. Ahhhh, the memories....

He looked like he got his ass kicked in the pits even though "the pits were really lame."

If it's the same she, she spent the night drinking at berlin, because she couldn't get in, they were sold out.

I got a bruised ankle from the pit, there was some punching and headbutting too.
