Actually, no. Sometimes the lead singer had a hat on.
We went to see The Slants and Men Without Hats the other night. It was an eventful day – I went to work, went home, picked up a couple kids, got stuck in traffic, got there in plenty of time, had the guy in line give us his spare ticket (score! we were short one), got seats behind the sound guys, watched a great show, got pictures of my daughter with The Slants, got autographs, left, got stuck in traffic, got home at 2:18ayem. Then got up at 7ayem to go to work.
But it was fun. And worth it. The kids had an awesome time, the traffic accident didn’t involve us, and all is well. I have video of The Slants portion of the concert, but you can’t really see anything. But you can hear it, by god, yes indeed.
Overall, it was a great concert. It was put together by a band called Massive Moth…but I have to say, sandwiched in between The Slants and Mw/oH, they kind of got lost. The kids wanted to dance, and they weren’t very dance-able. The Slants opened strong and put on a great show. Men w/o Hats…well, I couldn’t see much, but I what I could hear was impressive. They’ve changed over the years, but not for the worse. They did not disappoint. And they were smart – they saved “the song” for last. Well, second to last – there was an encore song.
Oh – and the played SOS by Abba. HA! It was great.
