I enjoy seeing the Skids every year at the Cradle for their end of the year show they usually have for the Chapel Hill crowd ! Im never disappointed by the music they play, Rick's twang grinding guitar and Mary's.... what look's to be effortless playing like she has possesed her bass guitars' soul and the ever ponding beats Of Daves' drums having a trance like effect over the crowd and the guy that is always at their side but seems to be never mentioned Tim Barnes giving them a complete large and polished sound ! I love hearing all my favorites....Bannana Puddin... Dirt Track Date....Voodoo Cadillac and even some new material from their recent Ep... Zomified which was great to hear ! But they should think twice about the crowd they invite on the stage ! I think their songs bring a great feeling of fun and joy as they amp of the crowd ! But I have a real problem when playing one of my favorites.... "8 Piece Box" and have the invited crowd on stage to chew on chicken and then throw pieces of chicken from the stage like they are throwing a baseball in a major leauge game ! My girlfriend was hit in the eye with one such piece and caused me to really look twice at the antics as uncalled for... if not just plan gross and rude ! Im there to really to enjoy and let loose with the music I love but now have to possibly for go their next years show just to avoid possibly getting my eye put out by an uncaring fans with no reguards to the other members of the audience and their enjoyment of a usually great and fun show ! I guess I can just listen to the Skids at home and enjoy the music without these kind of antics in my living room where I have the safety of not being pelted in the face with a half eaten piece of chicken ! My hat's off to the band and their great tunes but not to the crowd......from a loyal and faithful listener since their beginnings ! Thanxs !
