Late Night FDL: Sunday Bloody Sunday

U2 – Sunday Bloody Sunday

U2 played for a small crowd at The Roxy…

U2 played a free show for 500 fans at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles on Thursday and videos from the show have been posted online. The rare club date landed in the middle of the group’s 5-night residency at The Forum as part of their “Innocence + Experience” tour.

The 12-song set featured a mix of classic tracks and four tunes from the band’s 1980 debut, “Boy.” Tickets were distributed free by radio station KROQ; U2 were scheduled to perform at the station’s “Almost Acoustic Christmas” last fall but had to cancel following Bono’s bicycle accident in New York.

Among the celebrities spotted at the show, according to various media reports, were Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Jack Nicholson, Kevin Smith, and more.

Tomorrow nite I’ll back in the saddle…!

    Women Banned From Voting in Parts of Pakistan Under New Agreement

    ” In parts of Pakistan, women are now banned from voting after an local politicians and religious elders came to an agreement. Obviously, they were all men in Hangu and parts of Malakand, districts of the north-western province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. It is all part of the Purdah traditions of the deeply conservative Islamic Pastun tribes in the area. Local mosques recently placed men with batons to beat any women who tried to vote in parliamentary elections. Now, all women are simply banned from voting.”

    Well well

    Since i was raised in the occupied north of ireland, in a dirt poor Catholic housing estate (you call them projects here) in Craigavon, Co Armagh – here is a more accurate way to look at this song. I was there in Craigavon on January 30th 1972. I even remember where I was when “I heard the news today.” It should also be noted that Bono of U2 is not very well respected in poor catholic neighborhoods in the north of Ireland. He blames the “troubles” on the IRA, not the British. Sinead O’Connor on the other hand sings a number of stellar songs about Ireland that does in fact put there blame directly at the feet of the British.

    Anyway- enjoy.

    We called it our “Sharpsville” named after the Sharpseville massacre when South African troops opened fire on unarmed protesters in apartheid South Africa. Here is Sinead with another great wee tune. The famine song. I have played this to my Idle No More Native American friends who say- “yeah us too.” Colonized people who fight the colonizers get each other on a gut level

    Best Album EVER in my own honest opinion. Sinead O’Connor- Universal Mother.

    If you get the chance, give it a listen and buy it if ya like it.

    I was raised in a public housing project in the occupied part of the Bronx……and what we understand is that the IRA once fought the lousy British but ended up being nearly as much an organized crime group as a liberation movement.

    LOL

    When Irish eyes a re smiling’, watch out. the fuckers are up to something.

    See you at Truthdig eh?

    Deeply ironic that the one most friendly here is a right winger that I argue with and disagree with on almost everything. Yet is still pleasant and friendly.

  • Michael Cavlan RN

    Oh and BTW Dubby Boyo

    For the record, in the Catholic housing projects in the occupied north of Ireland- the IRA are viewed as heroes. That whole “The IRA are gangsters, criminal thugs and Godfathers” has been a standard propaganda line used by the British. Remember the Hunger Strikes with Bobby Sands? That is what the entire Hunger Strikes were really about. the refusal of Irish Republicans to allow the struggle and resistance to be criminalized.

    The Irish know that. Cant realy comment on those folks in the Bronx.

  • dubinsky

    my sympathies are not with the British, but some facts remain.

    and being hailed as a “hero” by people doesn’t make it so.

    the Russian people were so deeply traumatized by the Nazi invasion that they considered Stalin a hero despite the obvious truth that Stalin was a monster.
