you didn't even know that I was in a punk band

Last night I went to the Nokia… um, I mean Best Buy Theatre in NYC to see Ingrid Michaelson. She is so entertaining live, 2nd time to see her in NYC. This time though she had two opening acts that I simply fell head over heels in love with! Bess Rogers and The Guggenheim Grotto. So much personality on one stage. Check them out if you can, they are awesome. Blog title inspired by Bess and can I tell you she did the best little cover I’ve ever heard; Def Leppard’s Pour Some Sugar on Me. It was grand. Ingrid did a cover of R.E.M’s Night Swimming; you had me at hello R.E.M... such a great song. I will be going to every Ingrid show in NYC from now on, without a doubt. Lastly, watching her and her band cover Britney Spears’ Toxic {with choreographed dancing} was almost as rad as this cover of Gin & Juice. Well actually Ingrid & her crew were more awesome but I just love singing along to Snoop Dogg’s words in a country rhythm.

So happy tomorrow is Friday!
Do any of you have a favorite cover song?

I LOVE cover songs. Don't laugh; but I heard this amazing rock cover of Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" a few months back that I adored!! :P

i was supposed to go see slayer next week, but my friend lost the tickets. LOL. i think that means we are too old to go see those types of shows anymore. HA!

I heart Ingrid!! It's been entirely too long since I've been to a concert. What I want to know is when Regina Spektor is going play a show...I'm dying to see her!
