I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

The opening act for CVB was a band named 'Enorchestra', which I figured 'okay, whatever'. 1muse pointed out that it was not spelled that way but was in fact ENOrchestra.
They did a full-album cover of 'Taking Tiger Mountain (by Strategy)' which was, frankly, the best fucking Eno cover I've ever heard- and outright brilliant. Imagine 10,000 Maniacs, in their heyday, covering Taking Tiger Mountain.
Now add in some additional cleverness.

It was just awesome.
CVB were, of course, good. Oh, and Victor- the bassist? The guy I'd been scamming on since I was 16?
Came out of the closet.
'God, the way the nation is... 11 states outlawed me.'
'Oh shut up, Victor, the fact it's illegal just makes it more fun.'
'Well yeah, but either way it makes it easier to figure out a tour schedule.'

Oh fun.

And they were- as is only to be expected- great fun in concert. These boys really click together so damn well.
  • thanks again--i had a blast!
    oh, and i checked 'shut up little man.' i don't think it's the same guy i know, but it's kinda frightening to think there's more than one guy like that out there:-)
  • Sounds like a blast. Is this the one concert you'll see this month or are you still planning to see the Dresden Dolls again in two weeks?
  • i was wondering if i saw you there .. were you sitting at the tables on the right (as you face the stage)?

    i had a fantastic time. what a great show! i took two boys who aren't so familiar with cvb (moreso with cracker) and they also loved it. :)
    • Yep- tall guy with the tiny woman.
      And I just was looking at your LJ and have the sneaking suspicion I know you Trivially (on the occasional Tuesday, anyways): we have a mutual friend who shares a name with you, if you're who I think you are.
      • my name's not N-----, though i couldn't respond to your post on my journal.. my only Tuesday habit is WeBeSushi, though. :)
        • Okay, you aren't she whom I thought you to be... which would just be WAY too small-world. ;)
