This is a question Pretentious bollocks

Possibly the worst event I ever went to was an evening of turntablists in London. The lights went down, the first guy put a cymbal onto a turntable, dropped the needle on it and left it making screeching noises for ten minutes.

When the lights came up, half the audience had snuck out.

What's the most pretentious rubbish you've ever been to see in the name of art?

make the saucepan stop!!
I went to see what was a pretty obscure canadian post rock band in a grubby little venue in north london a while back. the second support act had the greatest & sillyest attempt at interesting music.

they were an emo/post rock sort of lot. for one of their tracks the lead musician bloke, who played guitar, fiddled with a sequencer, a keyboard etc. pulled out a violin bow.

nothing abnormal there. guitars, violin bows. a little wanky but not too bad.

he wanders over to his guitar stand to pick up his intrument. was it a classic less paul? was it buggery. it was a fucking saucepan.

he then proceeded to play his saucepan with the bow with a look of utter musical rapture, whilst the rest of the his band droned away in the background.

i almost died laughing. it remains one of the greatest things i ever seen.
