Women's Toilets at Rush Concerts Are the World's Loneliest Place, Says Blogger
Ladies, let us ask you a question. Do you like you drum solos? Do you like really long drum solos played on a comically expansive kit? Do you like songs with titles like '2112: Overture/The Temples of Syrinx' and lyrics such as "Stealthily attacking/By-Tor slays his foe/The men are free to run now/From labyrinths below"? Do you like 15-minute-long prog-rock instrumentals played by middle-aged Canadians?
No? Then let us ask you this: Do you like really clean toilets with no queues at all? Because if you do, we may have a new music recommendation for you.
Rush completed their umpteenth world tour this week, and in doing so provided evidence that there is no band more male-friendly -- and, conversely, more conducive to speedy and hassle-free female washroom usage -- than the authors of 'Cygnus X-1 Book I: The Voyage.'
San Francisco blogger Peter Hartlaub attended the trio's show in Concord, Calif., and took a photo of the respective facilities prior to the encore. The gents' loos apparently had a three-abreast line snaking out of the door, and the ladies restroom was almost eerily empty.
The snapper called his pic "proof that there's no place on the planet lonelier than the women's bathroom at a Rush concert," although we suppose there is a possibility that all the group's female fans had made to sure to relieve themselves pre-gig and were down the front, eager to catch every moment of 'Xanadu.' He's promised to reverse the process soon, taking a pic of a no-doubt under-utilised men's room at a forthcoming Tori Amos gig.
