it cost thirteen dollars and ninety cents to go. we hopped the bus to providence for a mount eerie show. but the kids there that night after carl blau played, they were restless and they talked and talked and talked and phil couldn't read his set list. and this one drunk kid in particular, i think his name was eric, he was throwing pillows all around that space and dancing like a jerk. and i couldn't hear the vocals because the guitar was way too loud, which doesn't make any sense at a mount eerie show, but phil felt he had to please the crowd. so he turned his set way up and played some really rocking songs. and the kids all laughed and danced and a few of them sang along. but i was kind of disappointed 'cause i wanted to hear "human human" and i couldn't really recognize the songs that he was singing. except "let's get out of the romance" and the one weird songs about cooking. and the show, it kind of sucked, i guess, even though phil's usually amazing. afterwards, the lights went on. it turned into a drunken dance party. i felt kind of bad for phil and the craziness carl started. and some kid tried to sell me coke and i got claustrophobic so i went out down to the street outside where all the hip kids were smoking. and i thought about what i'd say to phil if i ever got to speak to him. and i thought about the fucked up place and if i'd ever come again. and i thought about the brattle and the time i saw him there and how the kids were really nice there, no one was drunk, and it wasn't a bar. and he played till 3AM with all the lights off and all of us singing. and he ended with "human human." i thought it was amazing. it was great. yeah, providence sucks and i am never going back there. yeah, it was great. providence sucks and i am never going back there. fuck that place.
