Cosmic Thing

Last night was a blast! My birthday present from Kitty were tickets to the B-52's concert at one of the local Indian casinos. I was a bit dismayed when I saw that the tickets were "general admission," but things worked out great! We had dinner at the casino's steakhouse which was just "ok." Service left a lot to be desired and we ended up at the auditorium less than 30 minutes before the show was scheduled to start. Fortunately the B-52's must no longer be a "hot" act because there were still pretty good seats to be had. As soon as the show started, however, seats became a moot point.

With the first few bars of "Pump" from their latest release "Funplex" there was a rush of people to the dance floor in front of the stage. Kitty and I leaped out of our seats and were within 20' of the stage in seconds. For the next 90 minutes we danced our tails off to "Roam," "Private Idaho," "Planet Claire," "Mesopotamia," "Cosmic Thing," "Give Me Back My Man," "Deadbeat Club," "Whammy Kiss," and of course "Love Shack." The show ended with "Rock Lobster." I left the building covered in sweat. It felt so good for an old bear to be able to rock out like that. It was also really cool to see a bunch of folks our age also doing the same.

This was the 2nd time we have seen them here in ABQ. Both times it was an awesome show. Now if only Cake would come back.
