Recently San Jose had 4 concerts over the course of about a week, with heaps of local /international bands. However, the only band we recognised was They Might Be Giants (TMBG), from the "Day on the Meadow" show July 3rd. They sing the theme song to Malcolm in the Middle, "You're not the boss of me"... and for only $15 for a whole pile of bands, that's pretty much a steal here. So we went in time to see TMBG. They ere really great - they have a huge kid following, I think, and are very energetic. but their songs are very kooky and about things like the sun, dragons, different countries and things like that. Weird.
The band before them I am newly converted to, I think they're a local band from Chicago - they're called Madina Lake and here is their website. The lead singer and the other guy with blonde hair (and the black stripe) are identical twins.
Funny things seen:
The coffee girls gave out free coffees from little coffee-brewing packs on their backs. Novel. They also stood in front of us and danced to the music. (Brendan took enough photos at key points that we could make a little video of tehm dancing if we wanted.) The girl in the white top also danced and swayed a lot.
Signs: How many funny things can YOU spot?
