That good, huh?
I enjoyed it. I am much more interested in his music than his personal beliefs, but he was much less didactic than I expected. He's a great speaker and even when I didn't agree with everything he said, it was engaging. The guy has made some incredible music over the years and he's obviously very smart. I definitely couldn't speak intelligently for 90 minutes about high school teachers, 9/11 and Al Jourgensen.
Eddy Current Suppression Ring got a nice plug, including a mention that seeing ECSR in Philadelphia recently was the first time he had traveled out of town to see a show since 1981. Cool!
One girl asked him why he decided to get out of music, even though he hasn't, and he was extremely nice about it. I half-expected him to berate the entire room for the question, but he didn't. He seemed like a cool guy.
I'm glad I went.
