First of all, would like to thank MGMT for the show they did last night and i say that i feel reeeeeeaally sorry for the disrespect they had to stand when the crowd shouted "Foo fighters, foo fighters" al the beginning of Siberian Breaks. I felt really ashamed of being argentinian in that moment, because im not like that and I knew a lot of people while waiting to enter to the stadium that went just to see them. I mean, we paid 120 dolars to see you, guys. And here with 120 dolars we do like.. a lot of things, is not a little money.
I particulary dislike the stadiums because you will never see the band confortably. And not because you have to be standing all the time. I dont know, what is the deal in another countries, but in Argentina, if you want to see the band, you have to go to the stadium like (me, i went at 11am, and the fest started at 4pm) really earlier. And not just that, then, you are right 5mts from the stage, but, people who comes later, they also want to be close to the band, so they come at where you are, 5mts from stage, and that's what it happens. Flatenning. So you have to see the band that way. Or... you can go to the stadium at time and see them (if you can) in a 1mm size.
Yeah, well, the thing is that i was like at 10 mts from Andrew (OMG), and that kind of alpha male (but not just one) that went to see just FooFighters began to shout in a pejorative way things like "puto", "trolo", "maraca", "bala" (knowing that the language discribes the people that speaks it, you can deduce, for the amount of synonyms, how homofobic is the argentinian culture), which, all of them means homosexual. Thinking that they were insulting the singer, but they just put on evidence his stupidity. So I read in blogs and listened to comments like "well, the FF and MGMT audience are two totally different kind of things, they shouldn't put them in the same day, maybe with a band that lace them that could be arctic monkeys". But I dont think that they shouldn't put them on different days. I think that people has to grow up and learn to tolerate and have some respect to the bands that don't want to particulary see, cause maybe the guy next to does.
Putting MGMT with FF, could have been a good beggining to that change. But, obviously, we have to wait. The result of that mix was violent. I see MGMT as a band more to play in a theater and FF as a band to jump and break things. Maybe they simply dont sincronize. The audiences, for sure.
