Holy shit, first off RT seems glitchy as fuck. First it wouldn't let me log in, THEN I just type the title to a journal, and it auto posted the fucker. What the ehll.
Okay so, I really need to stop going to mid week concerts, it fucking sucks the next day at work. but my fucking gods, so god damned worth it! Got to see GENITORTURERS celebrating 20 years of Depravity, their tour started here in ST FUCKIN LOUIS. Which honestly, that's a shock because they rarely if ever come through here. Let me put it this way, the last time they got close and I got to see them was in 2011 and i had the drummer and Gen the front woman sign my leg that I already had inked their logo on. Back then, they were shocked as shit that someone would tattoo their bang logo on themselves. considering i would think their main audience is in the BDSM community and also steam punks, not sure how/why a tattoo would be shocking to them. not shocking like WTF ACK but more like, whoa seriously? wow, kinda shocked. So anyways, that was backk in 2011, that was in KC, and that was fun then too.
So here we are, 6 years later now in St Louis to kick off their North American tour. I, was fucking hyped. Unlike SOME people i love seeing artists perform and LOVE loud music. Those who don't, are jsut fucking wrong. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! Plus Gen always puts on a damn good show. She may be older, but damnit she is still smokin and yeah I was up against the stage the whole time. She still has an AMAZING ass.... Hello g string.... For those that don't know (which i'm betting is several)Genitorturers are a rock/industrial group formed from florida that is heavily doused with sexual expression, sex imagry on stage and in lyrics, sexual freedom, fucking fuckery, and DOMINATION and submission. yup, BDSM is a big part of them.....and that's why we adore them.... So yeah I was up front and enjoying every damn second of the show as usual. Oh and btw, did I mention that Gen rubbed her monkey on my face? YUP!. I .....uh.... kind of feel that i need to clarify that especially after all the bdsm talk. Okay, one stage prop Gen has is one of those old kind of wind up monkey toys, you know the circus monkey that smacks the two cymbals together? yeah she was messing around with that on stage then leaned over the stage and started rubbing that on my head and face. I was like "YUP totally fuckin digging this!". Hey I know it's goofy but damnit, I was touched by THE performer, THE person I came to see. That is fucking epic. It's better than just standing on the stage play a couple songs saying see ya then walkin off. So yeah fucking awesome.
Despite it being really fucking late and knowing I would regret the choice at work the following day, I stayed a little later to talk to Gen and the drummer. First off, Gen, is such a sweetheart. seriously, when you get to sit and just talk to her, she is really awesome and sweet. But, Gen being Gen, she had quite a few people waiting to talk to her so, I was a good boy. I was patient and then, I caught sight of the drummer hanging at the bar. not a whole lot of people by him. So, I walked over , said hello, thanked him for an amazing night then asked "hey you remember about 6 years ago in Kansas someone had you sign their leg?" He had a slightly confused look but said "yeah I think so". Well, I pulled up the leg of my pants to show him that yup, that was a legit tattoo because it's still there, and oh yeah, when I got home from KC I tattooed his signature in place as well as Gens. Now, I'm used to going to concerts and everyone pulls out their camera to take a photo of the band, or hey this is me with the singer like they're best buds and all..... but the drummer actually asked me if he could take a poicture. That, kind of caught ME offguard. Of course i said yes, because shit why not? lol. I guess he just really dug the fact someone enjoyed their work enough to do that. And thankfully not enough to be like "I LOVE YOU let me waer your face...." lol
So, i go back to patiently waiting for Gen. Then, she is finally freed up a bit and I do the same. I shake her hand and thank her for an amazing show and pose the same question. She has a similar look on her face like she is a little confused or trying to remember and then bam.... same reaction when I showed the tattoo. She even grabbed the merch gu over and wanted him to see, who i had talked to earlier in the night buying a shirt, sticker, dogtag and joking with. He was a fan of theirs back in the 90's and got to work with them, and even he seemed impressed with it lol. So yeah, it was an epic show, lots of fun, great tunes and great times. If you like industrial, or rock, give them a listen, if you like what you find from them on youtube, go see them live. it is completely worth it! Note like i said, it's very sexual in nature BUT.... there is NO full on nudity, there is NO penetration of any kind, it is NOT a sex show.
