Assorted music commentary

1) We got tickets to see Bella Morte on Wednesday! This one had kind of slipped beside or under the radar, so it was a very last minute "hey, we should go!" As it turns out, Bella Morte is NOT headlining, but that's okay. The headliner is Gorgeous Frankenstein, which is Dr. Chud and Doyle from The Misfits. And seeing as that's about as close as I can get to seeing The Misfits from the Danzig era, heck yeah we're going!

1.5) Bella Morte's new album is pretty darn good. I think tomorrow I'm going to go on an all Bella Morte kick, because I'm probably not as familiar as their music as I was at one point. :)

2) At my co-worker's birthday party yesterday, she told me to pick out some CDs to play from the extensive collection. I found an R.E.M. CD I had never seen before, which turns out to be a German bootleg. Particularly as it had a cover of "Spooky" on it, I had to borrow it. It is fabulous R.E.M. from the just before Out of Time era, and that's probably some of my favorite R.E.M. around.

3) No one made too much fun of me for failing to recognize Faith No More and Iron Maiden songs. :)

4) (Possibly only one person who reads this blog may be able to help.) Jerome wants to go see Gwar in November, and I am very much opposed to seeing Gwar live. So if you know anyone in the Seattle area who is going to see Gwar, let me know. I want to say the date is either the day before Thanksgiving or possibly the week before... He'd rather not be the only person he knows there. And we both already asked the above co-worker's husband if he wanted to go... :)

Ick, I hear Gwar shows are kind of scary. I'm definitely not going.

But Nightwish is coming again in Sept. You guys should go. I'll be there :)

Dawn said...

Yeah, that's why I won't go with him. :)

Nightwish is a big maybe. I'm still recovering from the Gorgeous Frankenstein show, so if we're there, I'm definitely going to be wearing earplugs. But at least it's a night that I'm in town and NOT doing anything else! :)
