December 5, 2000 – Orgy Show at 103.3 Misfit Xmas party
Oh my god. This was an amazing show. Danielle, Eric and I headed out to Buffalo in white out conditions to see Orgy play at the 103.3’s Misfit Xmas party. We got there around quarter to 7, had to wait outside in the freezing cold for 20-25 minutes. It was terrible. Once we got inside, it was fine, I could feel my feet again, it was all good. We got barrier thanks to Eric. Dust For Life played first, and it was more enjoyable this time than at Geneseo with 3 Doors Down (but being at barrier makes everything more enjoyable). The guitarist Jason was late coming on stage. We found out talking to him after the show that they had told him 8:30, so at 8:10 he went and took a piss, got a beer, and then saw the band was on stage. So he came in after the 1st song. We were on the other side of the stage from him this time, in front of the bassist. They’re a decent band, they put on a decent show. Better than Geneseo, like I said.
Between sets 103 did some lame ass stuff on stage, boring. Danielle and I had our pictures taken by 2 different photographers. One guy on a digital camera, I’m assuming for 103’s website, and one by a chick. I also had the skanky Chuck Norris wanna be security guard take a picture of us with my camera. After that was Lifehouse. Not impressed, but the absolutely beautiful lead singer helped a lot. The sound was bad, you couldn’t hear his vocals at all, but then again, I was having a good time just staring at him. Then after a forever wait, as per usual with Orgy, they finally came on.
The show was incredible! The set list went something like this: Suckerface, 107, Opticon, Fiction, Gender, Dissention, Stitches, Where’s Gerrold, Blue Monday/You Spin Me Round. Only 9 songs, which I was disappointed about that, but it was a radio show party thing. And they made up for it with the show. We were right in front of Paige the whole time. When they came out Amir gave us love, held out his hand for us to grab. Suckerface, not my favorite song off VT was a great opener. 107 kicked ass! I love that song, and it was awesome live. The new shit definitely is good live material, which some people might not think so cuz it’s not really as guitar driven like Candyass stuff was. Anyway, the whole show Danielle and I were singing, and we totally got Paige and Jay’s attention. They looked over at us all the time, Paige gave us tons of love. Jay looked over at us during songs that he had ad-libs too (Gender, Dissention, Blue Monday) to see if we knew them, which we did. At one point Jay came over and held his hand out to us for a while, which was rad. Then, I don’t even remember what song it was, but it must have been Blue Monday, he was having everyone sing, was holding the mic out to us and stuff. Then he came down off stage to the barriers and came right in front of me and Danielle. He walked by twice, and then stood up on the step right in front of us! Danielle’s face was right in his crotch (lol), he was getting totally molested (not ONLY by us LOL) and was loving it the whole time, big smile on his face lol. His shirt was soaked, but it was really rad material, it felt cool HAHA. I was surprised that we weren’t crushed when Jay was in front of us, or maybe we were and I just didn’t notice, I was too busy with Jay standing right in front of me.
So then he went back onstage, and they finished up Blue Monday (if that was the song they were doing at the time) with You Spin Me Round, which Jay looked at us to see if we knew that was next. We hung out at the barrier still after they left the stage, to get the setlists or picks or something. Someone had thrown flowers on the stage, so the stage people gave us parts of them. Then I asked the guard for the setlist but he gave it to this other 16 year old chick who had been flirting with him the whole time (it was an 18+ show). Then they got Amir’s extra pics and gave them to us. I got one with a G and I on it. (oh yeah, I also got a Dust For Life pick, and setlist.)
Then we walked around, I got a shirt, and we met the guys from Dust For Life. I got a pic with Jason the guitarist and the singer Chris. I got their autographs and the drummer Rich’s autograph. I was talking to Jason, and told him I had seen them at Geneseo, and he had no idea they had even played there HAHA. He said he liked my pants, and stuff, was all flirty. It was rad. Chris was talking about how it was the worst show they played, he got hit in the head with a drumstick when the drummer tried to throw it to the crowd. Then someone kept throwing Trident gum on stage. He was so funny, cuz he said something like how that guy was going to meet some girl and have bad breath and be like, damn I threw all my gum at that band! Rich was hitting on me, shook my hand all that stuff, and was like, yeah I saw you down in front. haha It was kinda funny. After that, we left to hang out by the busses. It was so damn cold we moved the cars to the side where we were standing, so we could sit in somewhat warmth until they came out. Eventually we left, after about a half hour probably, because it was cold, I had gross vinyl pants on and had to pee. The show was totally awesome, mad love from Paige and Jay, definitely better than the other 2 shows of theirs I’ve seen.
A few observations from the show:
– Jay has a really nice tongue… nice and pink and shiny. And he’s mad skinny. Small nipples as well, not bad, just an observation.
– Paige’s platforms are huge
– When Amir comes on stage, he looks like a doll. Like a glam/goth Barbie
– Ryan has a really large head
