Control Zzzzzz

I saw Yaz, one of my favorite 80's bands, a few weeks ago in concert. If you want to see what the show was like. Do this:
  • 1. Grab a laptop

  • 2. Stand in front of a mirror.

  • 3. Press any one key over and over and over again.

  • 4. Never smile.

If you want to see what yours truly was like during the concert, stand in front of same said mirror, and yawn.

In other 80's news, my friend gave me a call and told me he had like 20 free last minute tickets to see George Michael in concert. He got them because he's connected with a bartender at one of the bars inside Penn station (below Madison Square Garden). Whenever a show doesn't see out, they throw a bunch of tix his way. Though I wouldn't have bought tickets on my own, I have to say, he was pretty amazing. And the light/video show was hands down one of the best I have ever seen.

Speaking of 80's, the first concert I ever saw was Thompson Twins, with OMD opening. What was yours? Reply in the comments section if you're reading this.

My first concert was Ozzy Osbourne back in 1983. I did see George Michael in his hayday and he was HOT!

Was that Thompson Twins show at Madison Square Garden? (Or was it Nassau Coliseum?) Either way, I saw that one too - fun!

Sorry to hear that Yaz sucked, but good to know that I didn't blow the exorbitant wad of cash they were asking for tickets here on it.

It was the MSG show.

I find this very amusing how she sits there like Jabba the Hutt and the audience goes wild. For added drama she throws her head back. Wow, so powerful.
