Tori Amos Isn't Having Any Of Your Shit Tonight, KThxBai.

Via Dlisted by way of Stereogum, we get this awesomely true story of Tori laying the beatdown on a pair of front row bound chatty Cathies at her San Diego show:

[Wednesday] night [12/12] at her San Diego show, Tori Amos showed two girls that she doesn't mess around. Two girls were seated in the front row and I guess they kept coming and going as they pleased. While playing "Code Red", Tori stopped halfway through and told the girls "Get the fuck out of my show! It's a privilege to sit in the front row and I reserve those seats for people who appreciate music, get the fuck out!" A dude then came out and escorted the chicks from the front row.

Now, good people can disagree whether it's right and proper for a performer to act in the way Tori did. In fact, commenters at Stereogum are doing just that. For my part, all I can say is, PUT THE DAMAGE ON, MISS AMOS. Frankly, I now sort of wish Tori had been near the 9:30 Club stage during Washington Social Club's set this past Saturday night to enforce some proper concertgoing manners, and if you were unfortunate enough to near the stage on the stage left side of the club last weekend, I daresay you know exactly what I am talking about.

Appreciate music? Tori Amos? She's based her career on being a 'victim' and cynically exploits other emotionally retarded people with her terrible, awful cunt bleeding music.
