El pasado Domingo 14 de marzo en el club nocturno Velvet, The Whitest Boy Alive estaba dando fin a su último concierto en nuestro país ante cientos de fanáticos mexicanos. El incidente que está llamando la atención de todos es el robo (discreto) de los lentes de Erlend, frontman de la banda. Este evento ha causado polémica en el mundo de los conciertos llamados indie. ¿Qué dice la banda? Aquí les dejamos el comunicado que The Whitest Boy Alive publicó en su MySpace.
dear mexican audience
….i am writing these few words to make one thing clear.
the show yesterday ended like that, because somebody stole erlend’s glasses.
that’s fucked up, but it does NOT mean the end of the world.
the show was almost at it’s end anyway, we were going to play maybe two more songs
so you didn’t really miss out on something amazing.
of course there was better ways to end the evening, but you have to know
erlend doesn’t see without glasses, and that’s why we couldn’t continue playing.
yes he was upset, but that’s not why we didn’t finish properly.
it’s just impossible to play, sing, dance and entertain people without seeing them.
let’s forget about this strange ending and try to remember the good time we had
and we had some good time.
we are going home now after 3 great weeks in your beautiful country
and we will always come back, don’t worry
see you in a year or two
