Monday Photo Blog: The Last Supper

May 2nd, 2011 by

Personally, I’ve never been a Crass fan, so the kerfuffle over Steve Ignorant coming to the States to perform Crass material didn’t even hit my radar. I know plenty of people were either totally excited, or totally bent out of shape about it. Punkontroversy! Either you hate it, love it or don’t give a fuck, Patrick Houdek got some cool shots from the show at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago.

I am sadden to report that Steve has hired security goons who were searching everybody and going though pockets… I had two joints in my cigarette pack stolen from me at the door… then when I got inside I found out that my ticket that I had paid $20.00 for only allowed me to see the show from a back row in a balcony… I was not permitted near the dance floor. I have no idea how much dance floor tickets cost but surly for $20.00 I ought to be able to dance. I am in my mid 30’s and have love crass for nearly 20 years…. so sad that it had to happen like this. The cavity searches and contraband confiscations as well as the two tiered entry bullshit seems to run counter to everything crass stood for. Such a let down.

I don’t like Crass either, but this seems SO CORNY. the fact that they are all wearing Crass merch too, like an 80s metal video where iron maiden are wearing their own shirt! a fake crass show at a huge rock venue=so tame and corporate.

@ thexjib – You are posting this on any page that has anything to do with Steve Ignorant. It’s lame and you’re lame. They didn’t steal your dope, it’s illegal is it not? I personally don’t think pot should be illegal but really, what do you expect? But you seem like a total moron so it was probably beyond you to either smoke it before you went or hide it better. Steve didn’t hire security goons by the way.

@ Layla – Back in the day everyone in Crass wore all black as a sign of unity, they’re just doing the same thing for this tour. It’s not a fake Crass as Steve has made it very clear this isn’t Crass. If you don’t like them, why even bother writing anything? I went to the Chicago show and it was fucking great.

I was at this Chicago show,and to all of you assholes that think this is a joke,the jokes on you!You missed a once in a lifetime killer set by an awesome band!Steve and Carol and the band tore through those songs like they were written yesterday.This wasn’t just another band playing Crass songs.-Mario Rez

Wish I had the suspension of disbelief to enjoy a show like this, but the fact is that it’s not Crass. If you wanna spend a lot of money on some great renditions of their songs, that’s your prerogative. Don’t expect me to cry over missing out on it, though. I missed Crass a long, long time ago. I’m over it now.

You wouldn’t have to suspend belief, Steve Ignorant has made it clear this isn’t Crass. In fact, I don’t know how he could make it more clear.
