I went to see Clinic last night at the Henry Fonda Theatre and walked out 40 minutes into the set. It was only a matter of a few songs before I decided I was going to duck out early, but I wanted to make sure I gave them a fair chance before I did so. I was so bored by them, it was painful. All I could think about was the fact that my legs were getting stiff just standing there. I was trying to pay attention, but watching the crowd was more interesting. At least they were a bit more animated.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve seen far less live music. More often than not I am so uninterested in seeing bands play live. I recently bought tickets to several shows in hopes of changing my own mind. Monday is Helmet at the Troubadour, which should be interesting. I’ll let you know how that goes.
