The Lovely Eggs say…

IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN TO A GIG IN RECENT TIMES, YOU’VE ALMOST CERTAINLY BORNE WITNESS TO THE SPECTACLE THAT IS “THE FAKE ENCORE.”

THIS INVOLVES A BAND PLANNING THEIR SET TO INCLUDE A FAKE ENDING WHERE THEY LEAVE THE STAGE, ONLY TO COME BACK A FEW MINUTES LATER FOR A FORMULAIC AND PRE-PLANNED “ENCORE.”

SPONTANEOUS MOMENTS ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY A LINE UNDER A SETLIST AND AN EXTRA THREE SONGS! B.U.L.L.S.H.I.T.

WE WANT TO STOP THIS SHOW BIZ STUNT RIGHT NOW AND BRING THE MAGIC BACK!!

You can tell they really fucking mean it too coz it’s ALL IN CAPS LOCK look.

For a definition of a “fake encore (v)” go to The Lovely Eggs website.
