The Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny era at Don Hill's kicked off (softly) one week ago. Which means it's time to plumb the internet for short-burst rants and raves. The consensus: the place isn't ruined, yet. Although Jack White seems to disagree. -
Some fans were surfing chill waves two days into the joint's rechristening:
Others noticed changes immediately. Luckily, they were plied with enough beer to not raise too much of a stink:
BBSBand: Shit, the stage at Don Hills seemed a lot bigger when we were Loaf? Still a kick ass rock spot. Red Stripe bottles? I'll take it.
Until the buzz faded and the night came back into focus:
BBSBand: Bad turnout last night but the show was still fun. Don Hills is a cool spot. Pain in the ass to get to though. Shady area.
Meanwhile, Don Hills found itself in an improbable new, sceney peer group:
Elsewhere, DonHills (or perhaps a Ronson?) pondered his own identity:
DonHills: Paul Sevigny better not fuck up Don Hills like he did Beatrice Inn! A Ronson Family take-over is much more fitting!
Some shows went well:
HuNTiT_PeRCeNt:Just got home,god is good,tomorrow night I'm performing at the pyramid,shoutouts to everybody up in don hills tonight,peace
Others, like Jack White's (performing with his 83rd side project, The Dead Weather), did not. And White let his choice words fly live from the bar's stage to a crowd including Terry Richardson (picture above, thumb up being good, absence of trademark grin being bad), Alexandra Richards, Liv Tyler and Olivier Zahm:
"Fuck you, you hip motherfuckers! Why don't you rock the fuck out?! Maybe I should go grab those free drinks and shove them down your throats, you hip motherfuckers!"
