Not exactly fresh, but I guess I needed a week or so to recover.

Saturday before last, K and I did something extremely out of character—not only did we go out (which rarely happens), not only did we go to a concert (I think the last time was Suzanne Vega in August of last year), but we went to see a band we’d never even heard of: Katzenjammer.

These four young women play an amazing variety of music, including such diverse genres as Western (Hey Ho, On The Devil’s Back) and J-pop (Le Pop), on an amazing variety of instruments ranging from a plain old acoustic guitar through kazoos and biscuit tins to an awesome Cheshire-cat-themed bass balalaika (far left on the photo above). You can get a taste of their work on their MySpace page. They have a CD out, which you can buy on ITMS if you’re not in Norway; unfortunately, it doesn’t quite capture the crazy energy they display on stage.

Not sure how K liked them. They’re not Depeche Mode. K is very into Depeche Mode.

Oh, and Leisha: thanks for dragging us there, but if my head explodes “while I listen to Le Pop”, I will come back and haunt you.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go sell tickets to a funeral so I can buy tickets to Katzenjammer.

  1. Tee-hee, you’re welcome. Almost a month later and your head has not exploded … so we’ll have to try again in January and see how you get on then. (Am very disappointed by your refusal to wear the polkadot dress as you promised …)

    It was fun and I’m happy you guys came with me. I consider dragging you along like that a good deed. ;-)

  2. Unfortunately, I have a weekend seminar at work on the 23rd and 24th… I was not very happy when I was told, but I don’t really have much choice.
