Marilyn Manson -- Huntington, NY -- April 29th, 2012

Went to see Manson tonight since my buddy had extra tickets. We got to the venue fairly early and waited for a bit til The Pretty Reckless came out. I never really listened to this band and didn't know much about them aside from the singer being the girl who played Cindy Loo Who in the Grinch movie. Once they came on stage it was clear to me that this bands popularity has nothing to do with their music. Once Taylor Momsen hit the stage everybody starts whipping out their cameras and yelling for her to take her clothes off. Musically they're not too bad. Taylor Momsen is actually a pretty good singer but as I said, no one was really paying any attention to the music.

Pretty Reckless: (8:00-8:45)

Hit Me Like A Man
Since You're Gone
Miss Nothing
Just Tonight

Under the Water

After sort of a lengthy wait the cloth dropped and Manson came out. He opened with one of his new songs which sounded much better than the songs he did off his last album when I saw him at Mayhem a few years back. Manson had all kinds of cool props like a butcher knife mic, a smoke gun, a disco ball hat, and of course the giant podium during anti-christ superstar. He also used confetti in the middle of the set which I thought was a little odd. One thing that kind of annoyed me is how Manson will grab his crotch and shit, isn't the guy in his 40's? The other negative was the douche bags. The kind that whip their shirts off and mosh to songs no body wants to mosh to. Aside from that it was a pretty enjoyable show, better than when I saw him at Mayhem. I went for free so I cant really complain.
