Most Bitchen Girl Drummer Alert
posted by Sheri
I went to my second Sonic Youth/Awesome Color concert in two weeks, this time mostly as a birthday gift to my husband who's a huge SY fan. I don't know what's more surreal: the days back when I was totally wasted pinballing around general admission crowds or last night at five months pregnant, not wasted but whipwalking crookedly from the drive-to-the-city, late night, knocked up exhaustion—yes, and then I crept very close to a couple snoozes from the seat my husband inadvertently but legally (and to my complete embarrassment) scored me in the "reserved/disabled section." I love the new Sonic Youth album, but I'm not much a fan in their "moments of mucho noise," and twice in two weeks, well, I should get a "good wife" award or something...
Anyway, my oldness, my tiredness, and my general admission concert disabledness aside, the opening band, Awesome Color's, drummer really kept me going at both concerts. Allison Awesome is one bad-ass drummer girl, and, as always, it's so refreshing and fun seeing a girl behind the sticks. Check Allison out in action if you get a chance and check out their CD either way.
