On Friday night, I went to the Straylight Run concert; Hot Rod Circuit, Northstar and Say Anything opened up for them.
Say Anything was okay, my least favourite of the bunch, mostly because of the way the lead singer annunciated some of the words, really annoyed me (plus he sort of reminded me, visually, of Chris Parnell from SNL). I liked Northstar, they were good - and for some reason, I was mesmerized by the many (many) times the drummer kept wiping himself down with a towel after EVERY SINGLE SONG...and very thoroughly too. Hot Rod Circuit had an equipment problem before their set and the lead singer got all hissy-fit-y about it, storming on stage and yelling at the equipment people - it was mighty amusing. He was like "we were fucking paid to play and when we fucking get on the fucking stage, we expect everything to be ready so we can play for the fucking people". Ha.
Straylight Run were fucking awesome. Too bad from where I was standing, big fat heads were in my way so I couldn't see the far left of the stage, where the keyboard is. So sometimes I couldn't see Michelle and sometimes John. Oh well. I was hoping to hear "Costello" but John said that because we all illegally downloaded it, it wasn't supposed to be heard yet or something. So they said they won't play it...at least not any time soon. Too bad because I love that song. As for a song I never really thought much of before the concert, but liked it a lot after hearing it live, that has to be "It's For The Best". Oh and apparently, as Herberth told me but I wouldn't bet my cows on it, John Nolan was standing right behind me for the whole of the Hot Rod Circuit set and talking to people. AND I DIDN'T KNOW IT. Good thing I never did anything like pick a wedgie or something during that time haha.

Richard Simmons on Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Is he trying to be more gay or is he just like that naturally??!!
