We saw Marian Call on Saturday night perform a full set. The show was to benefit Wild horse Ranch Rescue in Gilbert. For once it’s a charity I can get behind as you can see the work they do, and the effects of it in person, or horse if you want to be picky.
For the entrance charge of $20 we got a ceramic bowl, filled with our choice of chili or minestrone , a Marian Call CD and the concert itself. This is what’s known as a bargain.
I would like to be the first to say that objectivity is hard for me with regards to talented women with red hair. ( Don’t worry Tori you’re safe I just expanded the category to living in USA, not living in USA)
Hearing “100 easy ways to lose a man” live was an unexpected treat as it’s probably the best use of her voice when not singing her own work.
I rather cheekily , I hope not dickishly, suggested about her new song “Karaoke” that “Jonathan Coulton called and would like the song back” but it’s really good and had the kind of comedic build up that I love within some of his songs. A duet would rock because I think the voices would mix really well without someone needing to fit paul and storm with tighter underwear:)
The new road song was really good and I am totally spacing on the name of the guitarist that accompanies her but damn he’s good. This was an awesome evening that even I’m not going to take the time to poke fun at the more surreal aspects of the evening at least tonight;)
Creddy and myself are big fans of the work of Mark Jonathan Davis and his best known creation Richard Cheese “Tomorrow’s standards today” While I’m not a fan of the venue or the way the VIP tickets were handled it was like every other Cheese show we’ve been to. Musically awesome ( I could watch “Bobby Ricotta” goof around all night) with the real show being the audience participation between a set we’ve seen 2.5 times prior.
Guess what when he comes back later in the year we’ll be there too.
Given the star wars geekery from his other works and the pseudonymous singer I’m still surprised that the audience has yet to be invited out for milk and wookies.
An idea : Would the correct term for an older cougar be sabre-toothed tiger?
