I went to see the joint Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven New Year's Eve show last night. Cracker
played a version of Up Against the Wall Redneck Mothers that was tweaked to satirize the administration. It was fun, especially if you know the song. You can find an MP3 of an earlier perfomance here. The show was filled with odd sights like a family that brought their 10 month old. A ten year old who was rocking out with some devil signs, which I thought was for metal only. The crowd was active in general. I've been to mostly indie shows of late, where the "dancing" is usually restricted to various forms of head movement. This place was lousy with hippies who had no problem breaking out the crazy interpretative dances. One chick even started pole dancing.
