Quote:
[Death Grips] pleaded “Art,” claiming that their lack of performance was the performance itself. I want to believe that this is true, and that these no-shows were motivated by the very healthy and very punk artistic impulse to subvert, confuse, and generally fuck with people. Unfortunately, this whole fiasco comes off as an insider-y performance art piece aimed to separate those who “Get It” from those who don’t, and that’s not called punk. It’s just Death Grips being a bunch of dicks.
and

Quote:
Ultimately, whenever a band—especially a punk band, and especially one prone to outbursts as Death Grips—pulls half-baked stunts like this, it comes across as the equivalent of a stoned teenager wearing an Anarchy t-shirt he bought at Spencer’s Gifts crashing his mom’s Volvo into a ditch on purpose. It’s not rebelling against anything, and it solves nothing. It’s just stupid.
Also, I don't think it's really entitled to expect that a band you paid to see actually show up and, you know, play. Makes no difference if the fans got refunded.

Yeah Brutal, I'm not pissed they didn't play, I'm just pissed at the stupid shit they did by booking it and trying to act "hip" and keep their "movement" between only them without letting anyone else know.

You know the band is a bunch of douches when finally the venue just goes "Okay they aren't coming or making any attempt to contact us so the shows over"

Yeah, honestly watching drunken white kids destroy their stage setup and drum kit was probably better than actually watching them play.

No. Death Grips is ace.

They got the job done seeing as how y'all keep discussing this. Thats all they wanted.

Remember guys everyone got a refund sooo technically y'all saw a free "art" show. The suicide note is a bit odd but to each their own.

I'm not worried about it or bitching or anything. I genuinely had a fun night hanging out with friends and such.

This.

I think a lot of people here confused me being pissed the show got cancelled over the fact that I just think the band is a fucking joke now for doing it.
