Extreme Behavior

Went to see Hinder last night at the Starland Ballroom.  The show was sold out and I got there just as the last opening act was wrapping up their set.  (Black Stone Cherry, who I'd never heard of, but I largely don't follow new music...)

Hinder was awesome.  They played all the stuff off their album that I like, plus a cover of Born to Be Wild and a song from their new album which hasn't been released yet. 

I was dumb and wore shoes with heels.  I had some mostly drunk annoying blonde standing in front of me who kept trying to push me back and I was really tempted to do one of two things-- 1. I was chewing gum and thought about blowing a bubble into her hair or 2.  Tell her that if she didn't get her ass off me she might catch my crabs (which isn't true, but seemed like a snarky thing to say in the moment.  

So two things I noticed about Hinder: 
1.  The lead singer, Austin Winker, has a spastic had thing that he seems to do a lot
2.  That same singer looks a whole lot like John Taylor from Duran Duran in the mid 90s.

I used to be so good w/ knowing music and bands. I thought it was my life, you know? But, I haven't heard of either of these bands. Guess if it's not made for toddlers... :(

He does kind of look like JT.

Hinder had a big hit this past year with a song called "Lips of an Angel."

Nope. Still no idea. I'm old now.
