It's been a few days since I've had time to sit down on the computer........For those of you who didn't know, I got the chance to see the Violent Femmes at the Vogue last weekend.
What a great show!!! Needless to say, there were lots of thirty-somethings running around reliving their high school and college years...and yes, I was one of them!!!!
For a three piece band, they sure can put out a huge sound!! Their percussionist was very annimated, and a lot of fun to watch. They also had a horn section join them for a few songs. They were called "The Horns of Dilemma." The sax player was great, and they had a guy with a slide whistle which gave everything a very unique sound.
They've only got a couple more shows before the end of this tour, but if anyone has a chance to catch them....I highly recommend it!!!
The only bad thing about the show was that my friend left a little early. It's kind of ironic actually, kind of sad from her perspective, but I couldn't help but laugh when it was all said and done.....anyway, quick story....My friend Jill and her boyfriend just broke up. The tickets for the show were a Valentine's gift from Jill to Russ. He was nice enough to let her keep them when they broke up (which I'm really sad about) but she left right after they played "Breaking Up is Easy to do." How ironic........she was outta there!!!!!
