Asking Alexandria at the Ogden Theatre, 11/27/12


Last night at the Ogden Theatre, the fist-pumping, black-shirted, skinny jeans-wearing contingent was out in full force. As the England-via-Dubai outfit Asking Alexandria performed for a capacity crowd, mosh pits formed and quickly disappeared. Kids were throwing devil horns in the pit or ambling around texting in the back, and more than one couple was spotted taking advantage of the relative darkness in the waning hours before the impending curfew inevitably intruded on their stolen moments. Frontman Danny Worsnop, wearing a fringed leather jacket and no shirt, kindly requested -- nay, instructed -- women to bear their breasts. Some did. One, in fact, threw her bra on stage as a souvenir. If that ain't rock, what is?
