Mexico: tough crowd

Postby quasarwutwut » Wed Jan 19, 2011 12:39 pm

Jeez. This does nothing to improve my poorly-researched notion that Mexico isn't as fun as the cartoons suggest. From cbsnews.com:

"After members of the band La Excelencia in Guadalajara, Mexico refused to play more songs after closing time, irate members of the audience killed two members of the band and detonated a grenade inside the bar, Vida Divina, according to Mexican newspaper El Occidental.

A 26-year-old woman attending the concert was also shot and injured.

According to El Occidental, four drunk men aggressively demanded the band play more after their set ended - and they did - for a while. After they stopped around 4 a.m. local time Monday morning, one of the men threw a grenade at the stage, and people ran out of the bar. As they did, two of the band members were shot."

Hey, at least they wanted the band to play more. I've seen crowds at Lily's lob grenades to get Quasar Wut-Wut to stop playing.

#1 rule of playing in front of a rough, irate, and drunk crowd: renditions of the theme from "Rawhide" will always calm them down.

I'm assuming Jolie will be the one showing Henry how to play The Sports, because she really has a hell of an arm. She knocked Brent out from the back of the room - and he's a big dude! And ugly!
