Bright Eyes/The Faint tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 11:57 am May 11, 2005

Well, it should be a historic show tonight… for One Percent Productions. The Faint and Bright Eyes already have played their share of arena gigs, but this will be the first “arena” concert promoted by One Percent (that I know of) and it’s already a success. Unlike Sokol shows, where the dynamic duo of Marc and Jim are front-and-center, taking your dough and stamping your hand, tonight they’ll probably be holed away in the MAC Center’s swanky rockstar green room, dining on the veggie tray and horse-tub of cold beer, surrounded by a covey of half-naked groupie-whores, completely oblivious to the territorial pissing going on upstairs by anxious/heartbroken teens and their angry parents searching for decent seats. Barring a tornado (and after last night, I’m not kidding) I will be among the mob. The show starts promptly at 8 p.m. with Mars Black opening, which means I’ll get there around 9:30, just in time for The Faint’s high-NRG dance routine. And then, Bright Eyes. With the days of emotional eruptions behind him, there will be nothing left to watch but Nik Fackler’s fine videoworks. Will Conor and Co. bring the room down, like in KC and Seattle? We’ll find out tonight…
