twoapennything: "Dear Boss" Letter from Jack the Ripper to Scotland Yard - 1888 (Dirty Martini)
So, yeah, Sisters of Mercy concert last night . . . it was an all right show. Andrew is Brit-twiggy and bald and chain smokes while he sings, and the rest of the band was . . . well, who cares about the rest of the band, right? The smoke/fog machine was turned up on high *coughcough* and they are still into lots of multi-colored lights. The only complaint I have is that they didn't perform This Corrosion, which is akin to Laura Branigan (were she still with us) not performing Gloria or somesuch. Highlights for me were Dominion: Mother Russia, Ribbons, and Lucretia. Yeah, they played Temple of Love, but I don't really like that song.

I wore my black ballgown skirt and a top very similar to the one the model is wearing in the picture (no, that's not me with the blue dreds). Like, where else am I going to wear this? I received quite a lot of compliments, though, from random strangers and friends alike, so all-in-all it was a fun exercise in costuming! I chatted with a rather nice man named Randy in the smoking area -- he was wearing a full skeleton suit, with matching gloves. We had a nice conversation about Bauhaus vs. Love and Rockets, both of us actually erring on the side of Love and Rockets.

After the show we went to a club and danced the rest of the night away at 80s night -- it was so much fun! When I was in high school, being tucked away in the middle of Nowhere, Arizona, we had dances quite a lot as weekend entertainment because we weren't able to just pick up and go out to movies or out to dinner or whatnot -- our campus was in a very isolated location. Last night was like a flashback those fun times, where we would just dance until our faces were shiny and our hair was soaked through and our feet fell off. Those were good days. Anyhow, a bonafide hot guy asked me to dance, which was fun and flattering, and, as one of my friends said, it's always fun to watch the goths cut loose a bit and not be able to resist smiling while they windmill-dance to Tom Jones's Kiss! ♥

I got home at 2:00 a.m.

Next up on my concert calendar:

Ministry -- May 12th -- Ogden Theater

Erasure -- May 16th -- Boulder Theater

Nine Inch Nails with Bauhaus -- May 30th -- Red Rocks Ampitheatre

I know I just saw Bauhaus this past November, but a NIN/Bauhaus show is just too good to pass up. Especially at Red Rocks.

And, finally, because I'm older than God, I just have to say that it really kind of sucks to have to ice one's knee after a night out, or to actually hold an empathetic conversation with someone about how your clodhopper clubbing shoes exacerbate your bunion. -.-

A night like last night is always worth the ice pack, though!

Rose Patterned Wellingtons. Cutest. Wellies. EVAH.
