Ride theory

Let's face it, you put Henri Faberge and the Adorables, The Bicycles and Relief Maps together at the same time and you've got a great triple bill. Normally I'd be forced to skip out on such an event, but since I am in training from 9 to 5 - my first-ever brush with regular hours, unless you count my short stint in the ice cream retail business - I actually got to go to this show. Yay!

Relief Maps got on stage at 9 p.m., a little later than expected because of an unfortunate delay in The Bicycles' arrival. You may have missed the great Mocking Music bass controversy - but now it seems they actually do have a bass player (and when I post further pictures, he won't be obscured by a microphone).

I was wondering if they'd put the Bicycles on first to give drummer Dana Snell a break. Nope. Here's a few Bicyclists.

Henri and Co. rocked the joint, even at half (some might say third) strength.

Of course there was chaos on the dancefloor. It was all too, too swell.
