so precious and so cruel
Wow, wow, wow… Erasure was great last night.
I had dinner with Tod, Doug and Greg beforehand, after a mini self-makeover at home and a lot of paper towels, lordy it was hot and sticky yesterday evening. We ate at Rice where the meal was also hot and sticky, but in a very good way. I’d definitely go back, I had mandarin orange chicken in honey, very nice.
The concert was definitely for Erasure lovers, all the “If they don’t play this song, I’ll die” songs were played, new stuff, old stuff. 4 costume changes for Andy, fabulous diva backup singers, Vince looking strange, per usual and doing a fine job of the rap on their cover of “Rapture”. The stage design was a little creepy, but perfect for the small venue, a small forest of twisty, gnarled trees. We sang, we screamed, we danced.. I left sweaty and exhausted. And woke up this morning hoarse. 😀
PS: Anyone in DC that wants to see/meet them, they’ll be at Tower Records today, from their website…
