I have never been so happy to have someone call me a “rich fuck.”

Obviously, I’m not rich. I’m writer for chrissakes — dinner tonight is Ramen with a side of broken dreams. All the same, though, it made me happy, because even though Jimmy Urine slung insults and prodded the audience all night, we loved every minute of it.

I wanted to make it out to the group’s show at The Glass House in Pomona Monday night in the event I couldn’t go to Coachella, but lucky for me, I’ll get to see Chvrches twice this week, both at SoCal’s biggest music festival and in one of its best smaller venues.
