So I went today after the much awaited ‘The Doors‘ tribute concert in Tollygunge Club. Honestly, I didn’t even know I was supposed to go, it was rather an impromptu decision taken by my eccentric Maata-ji and her very nice and daani friend to take me along. Very, very nice of the gentleman to sign us in, I must say.
Enough on nekamo, more on the concert.
Before it started, Totoboy introduced me to Anwesha, Saloni, Rebecca and few others who soon became (along with me of course) the loudest and awesomest crew of ze evening. As a matter of fact, we took pics at, *gulp* Morrison Hotel (:P), gossiped, Anwesha and I were plotting to kidnap this hot gora person and then as the show began, we were the frist to go onstage and last ones to get off. Oh, and we were joined by this random hot dude who was clearly a bigger and nuttier fan than us!
It began around 8:30 I think after the club people did an immense amount of dhong. AND, then, our group was the unstoppable dancing force of the evening :)
They kick-started the performance with LA Woman, Whiskey Bar, went on to ‘Light my fire‘ and so on and so forth. I honestly cant even remember how many times I was inches close to flashing (:P) and tripping and falling down because I was jumping so damn high!
As a matter of fact, all of us were high on brilliant fucking music. Even though they were cover songs, the band was as freakishly awesome as the original. The guitarist was the best, methinks. But he had tits. :|
The lead singer had a sexy raspy voice. Seriously, I’m not joking. I could like marry his voice. BUT, he was mota. Like if Morrison were alive, that mota.
Drummer was good too, but I’ve seen better. Keyboardist was frankly as good as it could get.
All in all it was one of the best nights I’ve had in 2011. And I don’t think I could have enjoyed it more than I already did. The company, the music, the ambience was all I needed to loosen up and remember that life is what happens when you’re JUST HAVING FUN :D
Danke ‘Peace Frog‘, you made my day :)
