35 years ago (to the date), the Sex Pistols performed a rather legendary show here in town at a venue that was once known as “Randy’s Rodeo”… I won’t spend too much time discussing the venue. The space currently exists, but you’re not going to find a venue that caters to European music acts storming thru the states. You can however take part in a Bingo game with local San Antonians.
Much to my surprise there’s a show this evening commemorating the 35 year anniversary of the Sex Pistol show. I guess some are of the opinion that this is a high-water-mark of some sort. Their visit here in actuality to me seemed accidental (at best) seeing how their US tour was destined to be a cluster fuck to begin with.
To which I’ve always had a bit of a problem with recognizing the Pistols for anything. They’re contrived chaos… 4 angry/white/drunken/catholic boys who imploded by design.
Fuck Malcolm McLauren and fuck this anniversary.
