The freaks come out on Halloween. They also travel in packs.
Last night, Marilyn Manson played a show at The Roxy on Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood. He was joined during the encore by "not only one, but two mothafuckin' treats." Johnny Depp played guitar and Die Antwoord's Ninja joined on vocals. Watch a crowd sourced video above, via YouTube. Be warned, there is some explicit language.
There are a few notable parts of this video. First of all, the sound quality is pretty good for a crowd sourced video. Johnny Depp is stationed right in front of the camera, and his guitar playing comes through loud and clear. The other guitar amp is on the other side of the stage, and it doesn't come through as well but it's pretty decent. The band plays a strong version of "Beautiful People,' Manson's 1996 hit, and there's an incredible amount of energy on stage. This is raw, hard rock and roll.
Through the performance, there is a fascinating subplot as you watch Manson's hat. Manson is wearing it, then Ninja wears it, then it gets taken by someone in the crowd, then security gets the hat back, then it finds its way back to Manson before quickly winding up on the ground, then Depp puts it on, passes it over to Ninja, who finally gives it back to Manson. Truly riveting stuff.
