Blood On The Dance Floor Webster Theater Hartford, CT Saturday September 21, 2013

Dahvie hiding his age

Almost two years

ago I ventured out to interview BOTDF and it didnt turn out so well.  Since then they have been a great source of entertainment for me as I mock their idiotic schtick.

I wanted to give them another shot.  I certainly had no interest in speaking with them but I did want to catch their act- and an ‘act’ they have.  There is something ridiculous about a room less than half full jammed against the stage.  Why?  Back up! There’s plenty of room, but these kids want to be near their idols, so there they stood.

The sound was awful.  The room just wasn’t full enough for the volume so there was little to no clarity. Visually, the film showing was on a too small screen and too low behind the drummer.  Ya couldn’t really watch it.

What you could see is the infamous Jay gyrating in his quasi S&M leather boy wear.  He is the gimp.  The mere site of him set me off.  There is flaming and there is needs to be snuffed out.

Here is some bullets on the Blood On The Dancefloor show

1- they throw blood at you. I swear I am so glad I was away from it or I would have punched someone in the head.

2- there is a man in a gorilla suit who throws glitter

3- there is a violin, a bass and a drum……and a keyboard

4- Dahvie is a short round man who without hairdye and makeup would look like a Chino down at the bodega

5-Um.. ever see a big boy crowd surf on an inflatable turtle through a crowd of 12 year olds?

I will say some great things. The crowd was in love and they were happy and really engaged in the act. I am very familiar with the bands work but again, with the horrible sound quality I was at a loss.





But here is the bright spot? Michael Sadleir the bassist who struck me as a healthy Sid Vicious. 

 What on God’s Earth is he doing in this freak show?  For that matter why is there a 45 year old woman playing violin?  We can’t hear it. Who’s the chick in the pleather skirt, we can’t hear her either.

Sadlier held his own detached by the antics of two peacocks and holding a very steady beat.  He needs a real band.  He is far too charismatic to be in the background of Monroe’s bullshit.

I loved that the crowd had fun.  I had a few good laughs cuz I wasn’t soaked in fake blood and I appreciated the cheesy theatrics.  I just really wish I could have heard it more clearly.  Next time maybe?  Maybe.
