Stuck my head into rehearsal last night at Ali's to drop off the old laptop (a prop) and prezzies for everyone - a new mix CD of derivative, dark rock. Just the basics, please, the most obvious tracks, nothing deep, please, God, I beg you.

I had a sleeping two year-old on my shoulder, so I could not stay, but I was already impressed by the five minutes or so I watched. The set (the coffee house) was crammed tightly together, as it will be at the Levin for this revised production. Very claustrophobic. Sweet.

Doug and Sadie will be performing a scene at CPT's Pandemonium III benefit this Saturday, and apparently they had a chance to work on that last night. I am going to try and check out at least one of the two or three times they will be presenting it.

i fucking adore apocalyptica. they were in nyc tuesday night and i would have KILLED to see them...they don't just do wussy metallica covers, you know.

pengo said...

Yes, I understand they play all kinds of wussy music.

lauralu said...

don't make me have to threaten you. cellists fucking rock. you should have cellos in your vampire play. it would make it much darker.

did i mention i used to play the cello?

also, did i mention i think we're coming to the play on the first friday? we're trying to get two other people to come with us, so we're trying to nail down when they can go, but if they, too, get all wussy, then we are coming by ourselves on friday.

pengo said...

Awesome. And of COURSE cellists rock. Are you offering to play cello in our production? We'd love to have a cello. The word "cello" freaks me out, even to look at it.

I am so glad you are coming the first Friday night. I will see you there, you won't be disappointed. Even with no cello.

Cello, cello, cello.
