THE POGUES ROCKED THE WILTERN THEATER


Last night LA’s Wiltern theater was packed with Pogues fans – many of them dressed like punks from the early 80′s. There were more than a few tartan kilts and an abundance of tattoos and Mohawks- on people of all ages. Irish whiskey and Guinness beer were the preferred beverages. The Irish group surprised the crowd by running onstage disguised as a Mariachi band with huge sombreros. Shane MacGowan was in decent shape (considering his self inflicted infirmities) and it was evident he is still ADORED by his hard drinking fans. He shuffled around the stage holding a drink and a cigarette (isn’t that illegal at the Wiltern?) and every time he spoke the crowd CHEERED although, due to his accent and slurring, he was impossible to understand. His voice is rough and powerful and not as easy to decipher as it was in the early video above. But he and his excellent band put on a strong two hour show that kept the mosh pit thumping. At the end everyone threw wigs and masks at the stage. They still love Shane! (Keep in mind those teeth are the result of socialized medicine.)

    Shame on you Janet. Britain doesn’t have a single payer system, like Canada, which is hugely successful, with all the funds for medical care going to medical care, not to insurance companies who won’t pay claims even if you have insurance. Britain has a Communist type of system with clinics for the poor. And Brits always have had an aversion to dentistry.

    Geez Janet, you are an idiot! Shane’s teeth are the result of long term neglect, bordering on abuse, not socialized medicine. What an ignorant thing to say! You really think a drunkard like Shane McGowan is going to spend any time brushing, flossing, and getting regular checkups? Come on! Don’t say such stupid things. It just makes you look dumber than that hair color of yours.
