on the fourteenth day of christmas…

14 Dec

a brief recap of last night, you ask? okay.

it started with an early dinner at the always-good cantina laredo. i am a creature of habit and i always order cheese enchiladas at mexican food restaurants and cl has the best i’ve ever had. they’re cheesy. they’re onion-y. they’re perfection. i also had a nice buzz from a huge margarita, so i really thought everything was good. onward to dallas.

the doors opened at 8, which is exactly when we got there… only to join a line that took 30 minutes to get through. it was fun though, actually. they passed out goodie bags filled with stickers, cups, programs, candy canes, ribbons, and ear plugs. and we got several visits from frosty, rudolph, a totally trippy ventriloquist & his freaky puppet.

the first act was a youth orchestra headed by buffi jacobs, who is a member of the polyphonic spree. they were awesome. they opened with an instrumental version of radiohead’s just. so cool.

next up were the syncopated ladies, a tap dance troupe of ladies-of-the-later-life. that means they were old. but very cute.

the chameleon chamber group was quite interesting. a bit… surreal.

um, gustafer yellowgold. i think the less said, the better.

finally, the spree. yay for the polyphonic spree and christmas time! they did a christmas set and a rock set. both were totally festive and high-energy. i did my first ever youtube uploads, so here they are. sorry for the blurred bits – i’m not a cinematographer, ya know. oh, and sorry for the overlay of my horrible singing voice. i know you didn’t pay to hear me sing. but you didn’t pay, did you? so i’m not sorry.

    Grinchy on Gustafer.

      i know, i know. not really my cup of tea, though, especially sandwiched between the two spree sets. there was one guy who more than made up for my lack of enthusiasm – he totally hippy-danced the whole set. i actually watched him dance longer than i watched gustafer’s videos. geesh, that sounds grinchy, too.

    I must say…. I was at that concert as well and I must agree with Megan. Gustafer was probably great for the kids from the afternoon show; however, having him on that late at night seems weird. Although, he kind of gave me the heebie jeebies but I just can’t tell why. Huh, whatever….
