how soon is now?

I went to see Morrissey on Monday night at the Orpheum and it was an awesome show but the Orpheum is kind of a wreck. I counted at least four ginourmous holes in the walls and lights surrounding the stage and the whole place is badly in need of a paint job. What’s up? Where is that wealthy socialite who will fund a refurbish for the place? It needs it badly, it’s such a nice theater really.

Also there is no AC which I know but somehow always forget. Our seats in the balconey were Africa hot. Morrissey said we could all just sweat together. He changed his shirt four times, by my count. I thought I might pass out and fall over the very short rail. I think the people who sit below should be made aware that someone could fall on them at any moment.

Otherwise, great time.

    Oh, I know! The Orpheum is terrible. It’s really a shame, because if they fixed it up, it would look gorgeous. It must have looked nice at one time, but not now.

    Try sitting downstairs some time when there is a show where the people are really dancing. Then look up at the balcony. I would say it probably moves a good 1 to 2 feet up and down. Not very comforting when you are sitting below.
