Iceage

On every blog in the blog-o-sphere, they are unanimously up Danish punk band Iceage’s dress.  Iggy Pop has raved about them and chances are, Pitchfork has named them “best new band of the day,” which as we know is the best honor that could ever be bestowed upon you.  NOT!   Iceage are young kids, making it more impressive that they are rockin’ at such a young age.  Most kids in this band are around age 21 now (approximately).  Well that’s the legal drinking age in America and these punks decided to drink to excess before going on stage at New York’s Bowery Ballroom for a sold out show on April 20, 2013.  Although lead singer Johan Surrballe Wieth (damn you Wikipedia)! Elias Bender Rønnenfelt made it through the show, he was so fucking drunk, he fell over into the crowd and onto the sound monitors – that had to have hurt- many times throughout the show.  Really piss poor, according to G.  I would have left almost immediately, but I was stationed a few feet away from Bjork and Matthew Barney, who were also in attendance, so at least I had some good people watching.  I attempted to meet the lead singer once the show was over and after such a crappy performance, you’d think he would have been nice, but he was not.  Well, Elias, it sucks for you that you won’t be photographed with me because I will never see your shitty band again.  Best of luck.  You’re going to need it.  But as we all know, both in music and in life, shit always seems to float to the top.

    I recommend that the author of this review publish a correction. Iceage´s lead singer is named Elias Bender Roennenfelt. Johan Suurballe Wieth plays the guitar!

  • Mrs. Wieth said,

    Damn – wikipedia? Damn you for being so selfabsorbed, you are more taken with Bjoerg atending the concert, than listening to Iceage.

  • The G said,

    PLEASE! I listened with an open mind and Bjork’s attendance was by far the best thing about that concert.

  • Mrs. Wieth said,

    RESPECT! Iceage considered that concert to be the worst ever.
