The Marquee Will Read, Puppet Show
We could quite easily plug Unwigged and Unplugged, featuring Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer, but perhaps its better to turn it over to Spinal Taps Nigel Tufnel: Yes, hello? Is this microphone turned up to 11? I rather like Miami. I remember when we played the Marine Stadium back in 81 and midway through Saliva of the Fittest, a sea monster surfaced out of Biscayne Bay and ate three chicks dancing on a cigarette boat. I spent two nights in jail after the authorities claimed Id summoned the beast with the harmonies coming from my solo, which of course I did, but you cant exactly dust for harmonies. This show is inside the Fillmore, and its acoustic, so no need to worry about sea monsters. Maybe druids, though, if they have good fake IDs. Well be throwing in a bit of the slow stuff for the wrinkled crowd you know, the folksy bits from A Mighty Wind. Crap movie that was, but youve got to make the $34.50 entry fee worth it, I guess. Take a break from gazing at puppet porn and have some laughs.
