Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuttin' ta F*&! Wit!

As promised, I'm taking some time now to write a quick blog about the Wu-Tang Clan concert SB and I attended on Monday. That's right, the Wu-Tang Clan. I'd seen the concert advertised for a while and thought it would be interesting to go because I used to listen to them back in the day as a rebellious teenager and I still pop in a Ghostface CD every once in a while in my car. So on Sunday I asked SB if he was interested and much to my surprise he said "yea, bring da muthaf%$#in' ruckus!"

I bought the tix and then we realized we were little scared. Neither of us had been to a rap show, would there be thugs and gangsters poppin caps in the dorky white guys there? We overcame our fears (and the rotten weather) and it turns out most of Wu-Tang's fans are nerdy white guys just like us. We learned another valuable lesson too, rap shows have complete disregard for the scheduled start time. It was supposed to start at 8:00 but I suggested we show up late so we wouldn't see the opener. We got there at 8:45 and waited over an hour before the screen hiding the stage came up. And then the opener came out! They were a Wu-Tang affiliate called Ice Water. They did a few songs then the screen came back down for about another hour before we finally saw Wu. The concert finally finished up at about 1 AM, resulting in me calling in sick the next day for work.


You can see it was actually quite similar to the last concert SB and I went to, Weezer. Each band has similar gang signs and a fanbase of dorky, urban white dudes...









Here's a quick vid I took with my phone. video

Sweeeeeeeeet. I don't have any plans to ever go to a rap concert, but now that you've confirmed I won't be the victim of a quadruple homicide I might change my mind.

Dammer were you planning on going with 3 of your friends?

I remember when we were into wu-tang. And I made a big wutang sign out of duct tape and Dave Werner wanted it from me or something. I don't remember.

Lol, no, you can have a quadruple homicide without the others being your friends.
