March 28 - Art Brut

Art Brut

It was nice of Art Brut to come all the way from England to play the Entry, but that doesn’t mean that I’m going to spend $20.00 for their album. I know the pound is stronger than the dollar these days, but c’mon, this is ridiculous! Their album has been domestically distributed for a while now; I can find a new copy in stores for much less than $20.00. I didn’t think I’d ever live to see the day when bands started charging $20.00 for CDs at shows. Disgusting!

Art Brut is just lucky they put on a good show. Their performance was just about as silly as their album prices. But as silly as they were, they were completely upstaged (in terms of silliness) by the opening act – a couple of brothers from Ohio known as Gil Mantera’s Party Dream. Cheesy music and nuuudity! They were freakin’ hilarious.
