Reatarded: No Word on Jay Reatard's Surprise 12 Galaxies Show

I missed last night’s surprise Jay Reatard performance at 12 Galaxies because I had Digitalism tickets (no regrets). I figured someone would have some good shots on Flickr. No luck. Best I could do is this shot of their set opening for the Black Keys at the Warfield. Boooring.

I also figured someone would fill me in on the details of the show. No dice. Best I could do is this transcript of a gchat between me and some hater I know:

melena: the black keys bleeeew my mind last night
allan: omg, what about jay reatard?
melena: if that was the shitty band that opened i was not impressed
allan: oooo no way, i’ve seen jay reatard like 7 times
melena: it was like pseudo punk
sheer cacophony and not in a cool way
allan: snap

[beat]

melena: god the black keys are so insanely talented

Boooring.

    you conveniently left out the part where i said i wish they had sounded as good live as they do on both youtube and all recordings. just say no to drugs kids, they ruin live performances unless your whole audience is in the tone deaf haze with you. the hype blew it on this one. i’m not a hater i just don’t appreciate shitty performances or judgmental editors (♥) and i do love rockin’ sets and a good cocktail during said part-reatarded shitty opening.

    p.s: your use of the term “hater” fits right in with the previous discussion of hipster bullshit. san francisco hipster bullshit at that. way to go haighter.
