THE HIVES!!


THE HIVES WERE REALLY LOUD! THIS ENTIRE BLOG ENTRY MUST BE WRITEN IN CAPS TO SCREAM EVERYTHING ABOUT THE GREATEST THING THAT HAS COME OUT OF SWITZERLAND SINCE THAT LITTLE RED KNIFE. WHOEVER UTTERED THE WORDS THAT THE SWISS WERE UNBIASED TOWARDS EVERYTHING HAVE NOT SEEN THE HIVES JAM THE FUCK OUT OUT.. (BY THE WAY THAT IS ALL THEY DO IS JAM THE FUCK OUT AND I LOVE IT.) AS A CASUAL HIVES FAN, WHO ADMITTEDLY ONLY KNEW THE HIT SINGE “HATE TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO,” I DID NOT REALLY KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. I DO HAVE MOST OF THE HIVES CATALOGUE ON MY COMPUTER, BUT HAVE NOT TAKEN GREAT CARE IN GETTING INTO THOSE CRAZY EUROPEANS. ALL I KNEW IS THAT I LOVE LIVE MUSIC AND BEING SURROUNDED BY LOUD, LOUD NOISE. AND I RECEIVED EVERYTHING I WANTED AND TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY-SEVEN PERCENT MORE. IT WAS KICK ASS. AS A FIRST TIME MOJO BLOGGER I WILL TRY TO FORMAT THIS ENTRY LIKE I DID WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE. THIS ENDS THE ATTENTION GRABBER PARAGRAPH.

MUSIC, TO ME, IS AN ART. NOTHING IS ITS’ EQUAL IN TERMS OF SOCIAL COMMENTARY. IT SPEAKS TO ME ON MANY LEVELS AND I PRAY TO WHATEVER GOD I BELEIVE IN THAT DAY TO GIVE ME THE ABILITY TO CREATE SOMETHING THAT CAN AFFECT SOMEONE LIKE GREAT RHYTHMS, SOLOS, AND BRIDGES INFLUENCE ME. HASN’T WORKED YET. I THINK THAT MY SMUGGNESS TOWARDS MUSIC HAS NOT ALLOWED ME TO FULLY APPRECIATE THE HIVES ON THIS ARROGANT LEVEL. I HAVE BEEN SELLING THESE GUYS SHORT FOR YEARS. REPLACING SARCASTICALLY HUMOROUS AND INSIGHTFUL LYRICS IS AN ENERGY THAT YOU MUST EXPERIENCE. IF YOU COULD CRYSTALIZE AND CHOP UP THAT ENERGY IT WOULD BE SIMILAR TO COCAINE, BUT A LITTLE MORE POTENT. IN EVERY ONE OF THEIR 2 1/2 MINUTE MINI-OPERAS, OPERAETTAS IF YOU WILL, THE LOVE CHILD OF HITLER AND MICK JAGGER THREW EVERYTHING HE HAD TOWARDS THE CROWD.

OVERSHADOWING THE SPECTACULE OF THE MUSICIANS WAS THE ACTUAL QUALITY OF MUSIC. IN BETWEEN THE OUTLANDISH, ENGAGING PARLOR TRICKS OF THE LEAD SINGER, WHOSE NAME I HAVE MISPLACED, EACH SONG RESONATED WITH BRILLIANT PLAYFULLNESS. WELL, MAYBE BRILLIANT IS NOT QUITE THE RIGHT CLASSIFICATION, BUT THEY WERE GOOD FUCKING TUNES; WITH A HIGHLIGHT BEING A SONG ABOUT A BOMB. AND TO THINK, ALL OF THESE YEARS I BELIEVED IT WAS ILLEGAL TO EVEN THINK THE WORD BOMB IN A THEATRE. THE CONCERT CONCLUDED WITH THE ONLY SONG I ACTUALLY KNEW THE TITLE, PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED, AND DANCING BY THE MASSES. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THE LAMENESS OF THE VOGUE BECAME AS IT ONCE AGAIN AND BECAME A DANCE CLUB AT 10PM.

ALL IN ALL IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY OF ADMISSION, WHICH I DID NOT PAY, AND LIVED UP TO ALL THE HYPE I BUILT UP IN MYSELF. CONCLUDING THE EVENING BY NUMBER CLOSING ON TWO BEAUTIFUL WOMEN REALLY HELPED THE NIGHT’S CASE AS THE BEST NIGHT SINCE FRIDAY.
