The dude and I went to the REM concert with a friend last night. After The National and Modest Mouse, these two girls behind us had this conversation:
"I hope these people stand up when the show starts."
"They won't. They're old."
"I hate going to old people's concerts."
I'd like to point out that we were all younger than Michael Stipe. The dude pointed out that they played a song about the Iran hostage crisis; "what can you girls tell me about that? I thought so." Later they were saying how hot Michael Stipe was and yelling for him to take off his shirt. Um, apparently they didn't know who the old people at the concert were.
