Didn't you get the memo? Everything bad that happens is the fault of Obama and/or ISIS.
Too bad those bombers saw great place with rich culture (and great choice of bands) as the great target of bombing

thanks Irvine, that's really sweet x
we're in the countryside, a train journey from Paris, but spent most of Wednesday mooching around those same streets where some of the attacks took place in Bastille and in Les Halles, just having a lovely time in the city after our U2 gig - crazy how things can change from one day to the next... am hoping all my friends and work mates are ok though - won't hear from most until Monday, but everyone will be shellshocked i'm sure... dreadful times

MSNBC reporting that one of the members of the band that was playing was killed.

Fuck. I mean, I don't know anything about this band, but it doesn't matter. Fuck.

That conflicts with what was posted by Chan Marshall on her Instagram. David Pajo was contacted by a member of EODM and reported they were all safe.

Band's manager has re-iterated that no band members were killed. Good to hear that, at least.

I heard that all the band members managed to escape the sight before the fiasco really unravelled. I think they updated their Facebook page and stated that everyone from EoDM is totally safe.

1 EODM crew member was killed and 1 seriously injured. Band is fine.

From Consequence of Sound via NBC San Diego.

I feel ill just reading the tweets and news snippets people posted in here from those who were caught up in this horror. Holy crap. I just can't even begin to imagine.

So, so, so utterly devastating and tragic. mama cass, I too am glad to hear you're okay, and I'm sending tons of love and thoughts to you and everyone else in Paris and France as a whole.

And yet idiots like him are the same ones who, when the issue of gun control comes up right after a mass shooting, are the first to go, "Now's not the time to talk about that! We shouldn't politicize this tragedy!" Right. Okay.

I confess that normally I would rather eat my own nose than visit this corner of the forum, but this is just such an enormous tragedy that I need to voice something of my thoughts. I feel at once a bit lucky and incredibly sick that the same year I visit Paris is the same year that its two worst modern atrocities occur there. I think of all those beautiful boulevards I walked down and wanted to call home, some very close to where the massacres occured, and it's just inconcievable thinking of those streets and their beautiful people being filled with so much terror and sadness... I hope badly more than anything that love and respect for one other, in all aspects of life and politics wins out after this rubbish, and that it only makes people closer no matter how much they want to tear it about. I pray for everyone there, particularly the Muslim people of France, constricted by the country's conservatism that has for so long been disguised as progressiveness. I love France and I love Paris, all my thoughts and loves for everyone over there right now.

I know. Despite the fact that the refugees are actually here, because they are trying to escape from the kind of people who organized the attacks. Blaming them, the first victims, doesn't even make sense (not that retaluation even does).
