And not some typical indie hipster band. That is what everyone is. Nope. Between my boyfriend and myself, we have a wide variety of musical talents, and ideas that could make good music. Also I have theater experience and a closet full of fun things to wear.
I can play the clarinet, and I’ve taken piano lessons before, so I’m hoping to get a keyboard one of these days. He can play trumpet, and the guitar. also he can play the Kazoo, which is a great skill to have. I would like to learn how to play the guitar as well, so we can switch instruments easier.
Speaking of kazoos, I shall never use my Evelyn Evelyn kazoo’s, signed by Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley.
My boyfriend thought of the idea, and they are so awesome! What I’m currently trying to do, is to get a frame. From there, I want to take the puzzle pieces of the game we were playing in line that I got signed (I had an “eyebrow” match, and a “piano” match) (I got half the eyebrow signed by AFP, then half the piano signed by JW) then place them in there, with the Kazoos and the signed piece of puzzle by Sxip Shirey as well.
I can’t stop thinking about the concert. It was the best night of my life. I was pretty close to the stage (in relative terms, I could’ve been standing at the back of the room, but I was lucky enough to snag a table), and…I died! When Evelyn Evelyn came on stage, I couldn’t hold myself back. I literally started to cry.
Before this night, I didn’t know much about Jason Webley and Sxip Shirey, but I have found myself two amazing new artists to ad to my collection of awesome music.
I wanted to tell them about how passionate they are about their music, and how it really shows when they are on stage, but I was a bit too star-struck to tell them. I felt bad that everyone was passing Sxip’s spot on the autograph line.
I want to see them again so badly. The three of them just work so well together. I couldn’t go to the second SF show, because it was my mother’s birthday, but I swear, if I had money I would fly out to New York to see them.
