When I asked for tickets to the September 13 Clutch show at the Orbit Room, Metalhead Ned looked at me funny. I get it, my look doesn't scream "ROCK!!!". However, to my credit, I knew one Clutch song (Yes, "Spacegrass". Which honestly, I always thought was titled "Jesus on the Dashboard"...)
Mostly, I explained, my boyfriend wanted to go. "Yeah, he seems like a Clutch fan", was Ned's response. "Um," I thought, "What does that even mean? Because he has a beard?"
After seeing the show, I realize it's a pretty awesome compliment! Because Clutch fans are some of the most passionate, excited, loyal fans I've seen!
