Meanwhile, In the Land of Morrissey…

Morrissey’s latest tour got off to an interesting start in San Jose, California, Wednesday night and it almost immediately got weird.

About 1:0o into this video–part way through the second encore–fans got a little…well, you’ll see.

But maybe this was just karma for some of the shit Morrissey (allegedly) pulled before the gig.

Meanwhile, here’s a fun look at a Smiths rider dating to 1986.  Not very adventurous, is it?  Click on the image for a better look at Stereogum.

    Not sure it’s karma. Thought this was the pretty much the way Mozzer’s shows usually ends..whole lot of lovin’ chaos.
