Macaulay Culkin’s Band Booed Off StageBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - May 28, 2014
Macaulay Culkin is a pretty odd guy, but that’s part of what makes him interesting. He found success as a child and starred in many films during the 90’s including Home Alone, Home Alone 2 and Richie Rich. As he got older, he got less work and eventually disappeared from Hollywood.
When he reappeared as a young adult, he looked sickly and many people wondered if he had a drug problem. He has recently cleaned up his act and formed a band called Pizza Underground.
The band sings weird pizza-themed songs, such as Take A Bite of the Wild Slice and I’m Waiting for the Delivery Man.
Earlier this year the band released a video promoting themselves. The video was just as weird as the band’s song lyrics and showed Culkin eating a piece of pizza.
The band recently attempted to perform at the Dot to Dot festival but was booed offstage two different times and were unable to finish all of their songs. At one point Culkin was playing a kazoo and was hit by drinks and trash that were being thrown at the band by the crowd.
One crowd member described the band’s performance saying, “It was the weirdest thing I’ve ever watched. It was just bizarre.”
Culkin didn’t take kindly to the crowd’s reaction and stormed off the stage after being hit with a beer bomb. Before exiting he said, “Why are you throwing those? I’d rather drink them.”
While most crowd members agreed that the performance was bad, most were not happy with the way the band was treated and how disrespectful some people were being towards them. Some people actually liked the performance.
Have you heard any of Pizza Underground’s songs? What do you think of the band?
