There aren't many performers that I like that are worth the price.
I hate crowds and rudeness and then you have to find someone that loves the same crap to go with you. It's a whole thing. Usually, I just sing along really loudly in the car and that gets me my music fix.
I do like different things though so when someone suggested we go see the Tran Siberian Orchestra I thought it would be fun.
Of course, that was before I got there.
I guess it shouldn't come as a shock that every group has groupies but I still was when the family wearing matching TSO t-shirts and denim jackets walked by.
It was a Christmas show so I figured there would be Christmas music. (Logic always gets me into trouble) I guess that is what they were playing but it was their own music and I had never heard any of it before. Not a single note.
Remember earlier I mentioned that song that we all like? In the THREE hour concert that was the only one I recognized.
What I got instead was back up singers who more closely resembled pole/go go dancers just with more clothes on. Weird hair flipping by guys who were confused about the fact that it wasn't the 80's anymore and a discount Morgan Freeman narrating the worst story ever told in Dr. Seuss like rhymes about a kid finding a box in the attic filled with really random letters.
It was weird. Seriously weird. Like a grandma-approved rock concert.
Sure there was more. A lady singer with a guitar that, based on her hand movements, I'm pretty sure could only play one cord. A fantastic retro 1994 screensaver featuring dragons climbing on a castle.
I could go on but this is the Internet and our attentions are short so I'll just end with the fact that I did have a good time mostly because I was out with my fellow Krav Maga classmates. I was also pretty sure if a full-scale riot occurred we were going to full on RULE the world.
RULE THE WORLD!!!
