Cam and I took in the Dresden Dolls show last night. It was my frist concert of 2008 and it was a great way to start my musical year! I knew I had loved seeing them live the last time we went but I had forgotten some of how awesome they were. There was less circus in the opening acts this time, although we still did have a acrobatic hoop guy doing his thing when we got in. There were two opening bands. Friendly Rich and the Lollypop People who were really neat but only got to play a few songs (time contraints at the Phoenix because they turn into a nightclub later) and then Die Mannequin who were so full of energy and fun. Not really my style of music but enjoyable nonetheless because they put on a great performance.

The Dresden Dolls were amazing. Last time I saw them I really didn't know who they were. I actually had just agreed to go because I think A. I'd seen their lyrics used on a lot of Buffy icons so that indicated to me I might like them and B. I'm pretty sure Cam gave me a free ticket that time lol. This time I knew most of their songs and could sing along and loved the whole thing. A few girls shoved their way up to the front and tried to cut infront of me (which didn't happen) then infront of this girl who was shorter than me by a good 6 inches! Seriously there's no need to stand infront of someone like that, you can see over her just fine. I'm sad that I've grown older and don't feel right doing what I used to do at shows and take people out at the knees for that ;)

A few song highlights for me were 'Half Jack' and 'Gravity' which are two of my favourites. I think that tonight I heard every song that I would have wanted to hear again live which was unexpectedly amazing. They also covered Mein Herr from Cabaret which I videoed, haven't looked at it yet to see if it is watchable. I'm sure it's going to be shakey though. However for your enjoyment I have some photos posted here: http://laurentian.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2023747&l=f8ca6&id=158901505

The show was great, such great energy for the entire time. Cam caught me some flowers from Amanda's piano and I bought a cd and had it signed by both Amanda and Brian :) It was a fantastic night. I want to see them again now!

I used my concert high energy to finish cleaning the apartment, doing dishes and such as my roommates should be getting home today and woke up singing 'Bad Habit' by the Dolls :)
