Today is a day I’ve been dreading since 2008. That’s when the Beastie Boys show at All Points West was cancelled because MCA announced he had cancer. I was suppose to see them for only the second time that day. The thought of a world with out the Beastie Boys has been a sad one for me. I started listening to them fanatically in my high school years and they’ve been with me ever since. Their music is a New York institution, a battle cry for fun, and a way of life for me. I know it seems stupid but they meant/mean a lot to me. Too loose MCA (Adam Yauch) at 47 seems like a life lost far too soon.
