The Gothfather

In high school The Cure was my favorite band. I looooved Robert Smith. I saw them the summer before my freshman year started. My sister and her boyfriend brought me to New Orleans to see them! How cool is it that I had older sisters to bring me to concerts? That was the Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me tour. I was lucky enough to catch them last night at Radio City. 21 years since the last time I saw them. They were amazing! I didn't know a lot of the new stuff, I haven't bought an album since Disintegration. The crowd was weird. What's up with that? Where have all the goth girls gone? Not one cool looking person! (Besides Moi). Robert was soooo charming. He talked about how wonderful the weather was and passing his driving test. Then for the encore he climbed the steps on the sides that led all the way up to the mezzanine. The spotlight didn't even make it that far up. So he was in complete darkness and someone had to kinda come get him with the flashlight. He started laughing and said 'I can't believe you fucking let me come up here'. But then he climbed up the other side during 'Why Can't I Be You?' They played a lot of my faves like Catch, Push, Charlotte Sometimes, Boys Don't Cry, Close to Me, Hanging Garden. They went off on 10:15 Saturday Night. Did I mention they played for 3 HOURS?! My favorite was Kyoto Song. It was the first time he put down the guitar and just walked around the stage and sang.
