Matthew and I went to see Vienna Tang and Alex Wong in concert last night, with and thanks to the very thoughtful yukinooruoni. We’d never been to the venue, the Variety Playhouse, before. Its seating is a combination of theater and nightclub which is a surprisingly effective combination.
The show rocked, and I was particularly impressed by the versatility of Alex Wong, who played a series of different percussion instruments, as well as the piano in one number, and also sang backup. It was a delightful way to close out my Very Good Day yesterday.
Thank you Geoff! *mwaaa*
You’re very welcome! Glad you enjoyed it. Next time, I’m taking cookies!
Glen Phillips was pretty good too. Not as musically good as Vienna and Alex, but good in his own way. We were introduced to the first kid-styled song about radiation poisoning! You can youtube “glen phillips solar flare” to hear it. Also try “glen phillips drive by”. Quite wrong, but funny too.
We felt bad about having to skip out on Glen Phillips, but with the amount of sleep I haven’t had this week, I was afraid to strain the tolerance of my capricious immune system any more than I already have. I’m glad it sounds like y’all enjoyed his set! I’ll definitely have to YouTube him.
And thank you again for the wonderful evening!
