Jaya and I snagged ourselves a couple of tickets to see El Perro del Mar and Taken By Trees @ the Troubadour and it was FAN-TAS-TIC. Since we didn't bring a camera (stuuuupid double As!!!! shaking my fist in the air!! damns youse!), here are some highlights of the show:
001/ It was my first time at the Troubadour in West Hollywood! Parking was shit but the venue was small, loud, and super intimate.
002/ Taken By Trees' front woman, Victoria Bergsman, made me love the tambourine just a little bit more (and made me want bangs, again).
003/ El Perro's Sarah Assbring just KILLED ME. Her bat-winged blue romper paired with her adorable soldier-march dancing... no words, just no words for the adorableness-ness.
004/ Apparently, Corazones Rojos was there! WHHHHAA? am I right? Small world. I didn't ACTUALLY see her (I'm not always the most observant person, hahahah), but in case she saw me or my sister: I was the giant (literally GIANT; I was wearing 4" platform wedges) leaning against the back wall wearing: black leather jacket with gold trim, black lace top, black bow belt, black skirt , black tights, and these creamy Jeffrey Campbell shoes (wowwee, that's a-lots o' black). Jaya was wearing her trad-ishy black shorts and thigh highs socks with our recently scored plaid shirt (the one from the last post). Awwww, I wished we had taken pictures! Double AA batteries!!!!!
005/ Both ladies sang cover songs! Taken By Tree covered Animal Collective's My Boys and El Perro covered The xx's Shelter (click on links to hear song/download mp3).
006/ Ohhhhh, lastly: the dude standing in front of us was THE BEST DANCER IN THE WORLD. He looked like a regular frat boy schulb and danced like every song was an Elvis song. He knee was going, like, a mile a minute, head swaying side-to-side... all this going on to his own beat (read: not any of the songs playing).
