The Dresden Dolls are simply amazing. Even if you ignore the on-stage antics and the amazing energy level, where else do you get a set that includes "Coin-Operated Boy," a Jacques Brel song, and "War Pigs?"

Current Location: Greek Theater, Berkeley
Mood: impressedimpressed

I'm glad you had fun. They are a really fun band.

No shit. He came out in what was essentially a nightgown - which came off fairly shortly.

He lost at least two drumsticks - at least one into the audience.

And her voice is like syrup...

My favorite song by them is "girl anachronism"

I'll have to dig that up - they did a couple of songs I didn't recognize, but I don't think that was one of them.

well here are the lyrics. I think you will understand why i like it.

girl anachronism

you can tell
from the scars on my arms
and cracks in my hips
and the dents in my car
and the blisters on my lips
that i'm not the carefullest of girls

you can tell
from the glass on the floor
and the strings that're breaking
and i keep on breaking more
and it looks like i am shaking
but it's just the temperature
and then again
if it were any colder i could disengage
if i were any older i could act my age
but i dont think that youd believe me
it's just the way the operation made me

and you can tell
from the state of my room
that they let me out too soon
and the pills that i ate
came a couple years too late
and ive got some issues to work through
there i go again
pretending to be you
that i have a soul beneath the surface
trying to convince you
it was accidentally on purpose

i am not so serious
this passion is a plagiarism
i might join your century
but only on a rare occasion
i was taken out
before the labor pains set in and now
behold the world's worst accident
i am the girl anachronism

and you can tell
by the red in my eyes
and the bruises on my thighs
and the knots in my hair
and the bathtub full of flies
that i'm not right now at all
there i go again
pretending that i'll fall
don't call the doctors
cause they've seen it all before
they'll say just
she'll learn
the attention just encourages her

and you can tell
from the full-body cast
that i'm sorry that i asked
though you did everything you could
(like any decent person would)
but i might be catching so don't touch
you'll start believeing youre immune to gravity and stuff
don't get me wet
because the bandages will all come off

and you can tell
from the smoke at the stake
that the current state is critical
well it is the little things, for instance:
in the time it takes to break it she can make up ten excuses:
please excuse her for the day, its just the way the medication makes her...

i dont necessarily believe there is a cure for this
so i might join your century but only as a doubtful guest
i was too precarious removed as a caesarian
behold the worlds worst accident

Yes, they did play it - it was their last song. I couldn't make out all the words (a problem I have with concerts).

but isn't it fantastic!!!

Yes, yes it is.

That's one of my favs too! but they didn't play it in SD I'm jealous......but their version of "War Pigs" is AWESOME!

Their version of War Pigs is definitely awesome.

It was funny - I started chuckling about a line into the song, and all the guys started looking at me like "You know this? What is it?"

Apparently classic Ozzy isn't real big with the younger gay crowd.

'Course I had the same reaction with Cyndi's slower version of She Bop, and there's just no excuse for that.

LMAO her slow version of She-Bop is different & awesome in a whole new way (she did the faster version in SD, but the slow version is on the Acoustic Album)

..due to the price difference at SD we had a fairly older crowd and when "War Pigs" started everyone freaked out

where else do you get


The context of the discussion directly implies a definition of "set" that would exclude YouTube from consideration, since it is

  1. Not a musical group

  2. Not performing a list of songs in fixed order

number 2 is easy to hack
number 1 is a matter of breadth of interpretation

Le sigh.

de gustibus and all that

Perhaps your sentiment is better described by this, about 40 to 55 seconds in:

It's not the same captain, it's not the same.

Saw them open for NIN 2 years ago or so. . . good stuff!
