Razorcake Podcast #455 with Kayla Greet

Hello again! Here’s another Razorcake podcast for your listening pleasure. This time we’re live. Well, the songs are at least. When I go to shows, I want to be present. Sure I’ll fire off a few quick pictures, but I like to watch the set with my eyes and not my phone. Sometimes I have to watch bands through the phone of the person in front of me and I just want to smack their mobile device out of their hands. Once I saw Bad Religion and stood in the back, but that didn’t stop this random drunk girl from periodically jumping in front of me to Snapchat a selfie with her back to the band. I feel irritated just from having typed that.

My point is that if you’re at a live show, you should be live too. Dance around, pump your fist in the air, belt out the songs along with the band, hi-five a friend. Just keep your damned phone out of your hands! So my solution is to hit record on my voice memos and put my device back in my pocket. I have tons of live recordings of shows now and I figured I might as well share those with someone else. And these songs in particular are (mostly) all the last ones in a set. That moment when your shirt is soaked in sweat, your voice is about to go out, and your muscles ache from all the smooth moves you’ve been doing – these are all of those.
