"I love Simon and Garfunkel!"

It was time for the Kings of Convenience to visit Seattle on Saturday. Though their set was short (only about 75 minutes), it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. They obviously had a lot of fun on stage, and the improvisation made for some uncommon variations of the songs.

However, the title of this post reflects one of the funniest moments I have ever seen. (Even surpassing Primus' "take the rock and shove it up your ass" comment from Roskilde.) Following the first song, one woman yelled "I love Simon and Garfunkel!" The band was starting their second song, but abruptly stopped. Erlend explained how S&G never made a single good album, and how they were a great band for the iPod generation. And ended: "What would you rather have? Two, what -- sixty-year olds? Or two hot Norwegians?"

The show also included four kids on stage at one point (the band kept complaining about an all-ages show), and the call for a drummer. ("You can play? Good. Pretty much, it's the beat from Outkast's Hey Ya. Though we made our song first, it's still the exact same beat.")

I guess the only thing that was bad about it, was that Neumo's charged $6.50 for a Maker's Mark (but I did get to say "Maker's Mark, neat", which made me feel cool).

The Life Aquatic: Criterion

All you need to know: "Ten complete video performances of David Bowie songs in Portuguese by Brazilian recording artist and actor Seu Jorge (PeleĀ“ dos Santos)"

Single and double disc editions, though. Damn. I loved the cheapness of one edition.
