Ziggy Stardust Does the Time Warp...

"Ziggy played guitar, jammin' good with Weird and Gilly"...Ziggy Stardust
To those friends who chose to pass on tonight's edition of "Every Wednesday Girl's Night Out"... not to rub salt in the wound, but you picked a hell of a night to miss!

For those who have been reading along these past three months, you know that my friend Jackie and I have been ditching our hubbies, just about every Wednesday night, to solve the world's problems over dinner and drinks, and enjoy some great little concerts put on by some of the best tribute bands around - all over at the LV Hilton.  It really is mindless fun, and if you walk in with no expectations, other than to hear some covers of some really great classic tunes, sometimes you are VERY pleasantly surprised!  Tonight came in at, probably, #2 for us...we still have Which One's Pink, the Pink Floyd Tribute band, in first place, and I think Jackie would throw down and fight anyone who disputed that fact.
David Brighton's performance as David Bowie (http://www.davidbowietribute.com/) tonight, was pretty incredible...from his voice (as well as the solid band), down to the look and mannerisms!  Some of the greatest known hits ("Fame", "Golden Years", etc.) led the evening, followed by the "Ziggy Stardust" tunes of the 70's, and on through the 80's.  The evening ended with a rousing, audience involved, rendition (by David and his lone female backup singer/organist) of "Time Warp", from The Rocky Horror Picture Show fame.

How to wind down after such a great evening?  Post to the blog!  Next week?  The band playing homage to my "boys", Page and Plant!

"It's just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right.
With your hands on your hips, you bring your knees in tight.
But it's the pelvic thrust, that really drives you insane......
Let's do the Time Warp again......
Let's do the Time Warp again!"
