Thursday night concert --The Dan Band
I'm semi-NOT going to apologize for the video. I know, I've done a couple lately and while you are all riding high from "Suzy Snowflake", I have to show you this one. Although not quite as retro as Suzy, The Dan Band is something you gotta see.
Joe and I went to see The Dan Band last night. Yes, we bundled up to survive temps in the low teens, but that's what us hardy Chicago folk do--we bundle up and go. Let me tell you how freaking cold that wind is blowing across an open parking lot of a huge venue. Brrrrrr.
The actual main act was Cheap Trick, but who goes to see them?! Not me. They were old and "low energy"--yes, those were my actual words after we walked out after 3 songs. But we didn't mind that so much, we were there to see The Dan Band. They were hysterical and fun to see live, but I was bummed they were only allowed a 45 minute gig amidst the loaded set list of the night.
As there are only a few of us who actually follow The Dan Band, I have to explain that his show is made up of all songs that woman have made famous. The "I Am Woman" Tour is hilarious, if not entertaining. Gees, these boys can dance! Do a few searches on YouTube if you like what you see here--he's worth the look see.
Hey, Happy Friday, pallies! We are off to a basketball game tonight, The Nutcracker on Saturday, and some Christmas shopping downtown on Sunday. I hope this weekend finds you (and me!) some time for reflection of the season, some good holiday movies, and perhaps being with those you love. Breathe deep, my friends, for this is some stressful time of year.
