Tapes n Tapes @ Hexagon Bar
w/ Miss Fairchild, Solid Gold
April 20, 2006
Alcohol. Such a duplicitous beast. If I hadn't had that drink I could have left during Miss Fairchild. (It's not good when you can tell you're not going to like the band before they even start playing.) On the other hand, if I hadn't been forced to stay for Miss Fairchild, I would have missed Tapes n Tapes (billed as Elvis vs. Elvis.) On a normal evening I probably would have flaked out and left early, but around midnight my mantra quickly became a determined, "I didn't stay up past my bedtime for this shit." So--I stayed until 2am. And Tapes n Tapes were great. I'd like to seem them again some place I could hear them better.
But, back to Miss Fairchild for a minute. Everyone seemed to like them but Dave and PJ and I. Which was odd, because we hated them. I guess they tried hard. And the flute was different. But.... Seriously, DJ P. Nice? Are you kidding me? And the cheesy props?!? Last night I kept dreaming that Prince joined the Lollypop Guild. Thank God I only had 4 hours to sleep until I had to get up for work.Posted by me at April 21, 2006 5:33 PM
