I'll be at this one for sure. I graduate college (after 7 years attending) two days prior to this, so I'm going to be off the wall crazy for this.

Big fan of Sunken Gardens as a backdrop. :)

Holy SHIT, what an absolutely gorgeous venue!!!

Thanks for the pic, so far that Nokia complex in Grand Prairie is the closest I've been to an actual San Antonio show, and between the tightness of the scheduling, my broke ass finances, the short notice for on-sale dates, and the small size of the venues...well, I've begun to realize most venues might likely sell out before I even figure out how to get there and pay for the tickets.

But if I skip South Dakota and head straight here instead after Des Moines it might be do-able and GODDAMN, seeing what a beautiful venue it is hosting the show has really helped strengthen my resolve to find a way.

Hope to see you there!

I've already decided that if I can only make it to ONE Texas date then it's gonna be THIS one.

So are you gonna get up early and meet me at the "Bees Are Beneficial" event there on the same day?

Ha, badass. There's an online pre-sale on the 23rd starting at 10 am up until 10 am on the 24th. At this time they will be shelling out the tickets at $19.99. One hell of a deal to see Manson. Loving this. Thanks for the update, Norse.

You're welcome.
I tried calling the station, but didn't get through, as i'm guessing many people are pissed about the password fuck up.
I just kept trying different combos til one went through. Did you get your Rave ticket?

I might greyhound between the Texas shows. Its waaaay cheaper than flying, and practically gets me to the city at the same time [though boarding earlier].
Its 38.50 from Dallas to San Antonio, and 30 From there to Houston.

I was hoping to find someone that was driving to all three, or atleast to two, but no luck yet.

We could look into renting a car, but I dont know if that'd be awkward for you. Cause I still dont drive.

So I took a couple stabs at it but hadn't gotten to the radio station stuff yet, lol.

And I'll be Greyhounding to San Antonio from...wherever, lol, but I'm assuming I'll have to skip out on the Houston show in order to make it to Oklahoma City and/or Kansas City in time. I've had a LOT of trouble on those routes before and missed out on some very expensive tickets I'd already bought, plus the Houston show's at a House of Blues venue, which I fucking hate. And I'm doing my limited run on even more of a shoestring budget than usual, so any car rentals and stuff like that are probably a no-go, sorry.

But I got my Milwaukee ticket, at least!

Killer fucking show! Manson made a comment after "Hey, Cruel World" that we were the best crowd he has seen. The regular set-list was played, without "Murders Are Getting Prettier Everyday". Everyone was ramped up to no end. Got to the venue around 11 and hung out with Diamonds&Pollen and this guy Mario all day, as well as Ms. TeenaByrd. Great group of folks to spend the day with, much love to them all. Gave Haz a hug at the end which was a fantastic night cap. The band is in top notch form. Unbelievable.

I was able to get some pics but only one of Manson cause the crowd was just too crazy, and I was far too into the show, for me to pull off more photos. Got only one of him right when "Hey, Cruel World" started up. Diamonds&Pollen should be posting more when she can. I wish everyone the best on their future venues.

You can see what happens when he throws them in several of the videos that have been posted already. It would be foolhardy to pay more when he's only playing for a few minutes and then flinging them to the ground.

By Jamie Harvey
San Antonio

There are certain artists that become part of your DNA and never leave. For me, one of those artists is Marilyn Manson.

Beyond creating some of my favorite songs, being part of a subculture that dictated my fashion and luring me with his constant controversies, I felt particularly bonded to Manson as a teenager because, even though he looked different, when he spoke people were often stunned by his intelligence. At my high school, an hour away from San Antonio's Sunken Garden Theater where I saw him perform live on May 12, I never looked like the rest of the honors students, or my volleyball team, for which I was allowed to make our entrance music tape. I had us running out to Manson's "The Beautiful People" in small-town Texas. Not to mention I was banned from seeing Manson as a teenager and sat home whimpering while all my friends got to experience one of my teenage icons.

To say that I'd be seeing the Antichrist Superstar on hallowed ground may seem highly ironic, but Sunken Garden Theater was the site of my first rock show. Even though that was 17 years ago, I can recall the feeling of walking into the entrance and somehow knowing this whole thing was going to be a big part of my life. This was only my third time back, and it would be a great one.


After the sultry rock of former "Gossip Girl" star Taylor Momsen's band the Pretty Reckless, I looked around and noticed I was surrounded by disillusioned youth who are still drawn to Manson after all these years. I wanted to hug them and tell them all would be OK, but before I could do that the black curtain billowed, revealing the shadowy figures of the band.

The recently released and highly anticipated latest Manson album, Born Villain, spawned the first track of the night, "Hey, Cruel World…." Together we were one, experiencing a catharsis as an emotional combination of excitement, anger and lust swept the crowd. "Disposable Teens" followed — an old crowd-favorite that evoked a sea of hair and sweat. Part of creating a good show for me is being in the perfect spot, and wedged alongside the mosh pit in a corner of the rail allowed me to see the band up close without being eaten alive (though I was almost vomited on).

Manson's eyes were highlighted in fluorescent pink as he went from wielding a butcher knife microphone to one adorned by brass knuckles. He stumbled around onstage with the music, at times almost in a convulsive manner. To his right was longtime band member Jeordie "Twiggy Ramirez" White, who has since transitioned from playing bass to guitar. Wearing a sexy dress and scary makeup, White played an understated yet intricate guitar, providing a syrupy anchor to the whole show. On the left, semi-new bassist Fred Sablan gave an asylum-worthy performance, moving in dizzying circles as he played and giving the crowd demented stare-downs, looking as if he would leap out and devour them. On drums, Jason Sutter provided the beats that make Manson's songs often electronically poppy.

The crowd was writhing as Manson's GRAMMY-nominated "The Dope Show" commenced, singing along as they moved. Manson has done some amazing covers over the years, and it was great to hear him perform Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus." After seeing many of his shows, I think that was a first for me. Later, Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" entranced the crowd. A new track titled "Pistol Whipped" was the first one to grab my attention from the new album, so I was happy to hear this live.

But it was his performance of "Tourniquet" that really got me. Sometimes when a band hits icon status, you forget that the songs have deep personal meaning for their creators. As Manson squatted and belted "Take your hatred out on me/Make your victim my head/You never ever believed in me/I am your tourniquet," you could see it his face, we all come from the same place.

"Irresponsible Hate Anthem" had everyone's middle-fingers in the air as we joined together as a group that has likely been bullied more than a lot of other subcultures. For the encore, the pulpit emerged and a Bible was torn and thrown into the crowd, causing mass chaos during "Antichrist Superstar." To end, "The Beautiful People" was Manson's goodbye embrace, and the crowd left better and more empowered for it.

I saw a photo recently and wondered what this block was attached to Twiggy's guitar, I thought it might be a camera, so I guess it is. I hope MM officially releases some photos like this on his website, that would be awesome to see.
