Pop Evil Punks and a Class Act


On social media the other day I found footage from Palaye Royale’s final show opening for Pop Evil. While the brothers of PR defended their headliners as treating them well, fans shared the fact Pop Evil would not allow the siblings and their bandmates to interact with people between the start and encore of the PE set.

The funny thing is, I’ve waited in line to buy the opening band’s merchandise while rocking out and cheering to the headliner. Doesn’t Pop Evil understand this?

I was lucky jumping in line before Palaye Royale’s set ended that night to meet Emerson and Remington while Pop Evil was getting set up. Otherwise, I might have stayed for the headliners instead of leaving in silent protest as I did. Their greedy jealousy got me home by 10:15, so maybe I should thank the punks.

The clip showcased a rather mean prank. Here you can see a freeze frame of the event.

I Adore Emerson's Classy, Understated Quote
No doubt the guy thought it would be funny imitating Palaye Royale’s opening drum roll in the “Mr. Doctor Man” video with this dousing of talcum powder. And I might have been amused to a small degree had it not been for the fact the band wasn’t done performing.

As the video continued, Emerson stood up, tossed a stick to fans, and kicked over half his kit. I am sure this was in part to clear the toxic cloud away from his face, and no doubt released steam to stop him pounding the jerk into jelly. Afterward he had to get set up again before they could resume playing.

Did you know it’s unhealthy to inhale talcum powder?

    1. You're smart. ~nods~ I do like the occasional bit of soothing foot powder, myself. Be well!

  3. No I didn't know this. I don't like talcum powder though. I'm not much for smells like perfume and the like.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

    1. I'm with you! SO brought home Tide detergent and I gagged the first time I used the recommended amount. Heh... Be well!

  4. Talcum powder is now being implicated in some cases of ovarian cancer, too. Twice in my life i've had clients who generously doused their entire bathrooms with the stuff while putting it on after bathing, and that was two times too many.

    People who treat others badly get it back in the end.

    1. I've heard that. How awful! I never understood the use of powder after bathing, thank heaven, and like my unscented lotion. ~nods~ I tend to believe in karma, too. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Sounds like the "headliners" are jerks. This will come back to bite them in the future, whether they are aware of that or not.

    1. I hope you're right, my dear. That kind of behavior always disappoints me. I like how many rockers like Jon Bon Jovi, Nikki Sixx, Alice Cooper, and Marilyn Manson (despite some clashes MM has had in the industry) support younger acts. In fact, Nikki Sixx is how I heard of Palaye Royale. Be well!

  6. Mean people suck! And I'm not surprised that talcum powder isn't good to inhale. Sort of like tide pods aren't good to eat.

  7. Well to be honest with you I never thought about it but like so many other things that we inhale on a daily basis why should talcum powder be any different. Course, I will not be cutting it and snorting it either...haha.

    1. I'm glad you're in the know. ~hugs~ Take care, my friend.

  9. Without class, I'd say, the headliners, won't even mention their band name. You ended up seeing who you wanted to see and getting a good night's sleep to boot. Win!
