Weekend: the highs were high and the lows were low.

This weekend started off with seeing a play adaptation of the novel, Don Quixote. I was so excited and even got all dolled up for it. I expected theatric greatness, for anyone so ambitious to turn something like Don Quixote into a play must be a seriously artistically confidant person. It ended up being so brutal that we actually had to walk out. Not being a theater expert, I’m still not quite sure if this play was just following traditional stage cannon or if it really was truly bad. The actors were overly goofy and the writing was so superficial that all the integrity the book has was removed. Or, maybe I’m just not a fan of theater?

On a more incredible note, I saw Grinderman live at metropolis! Nick Cave performed like a mad man and meant it. Although his natural knack for being an amazing stage man was unusual and great to watch, this wasn’t the most remarkable thing about this show. The members of the band are nearly seniors and they were on fire the entire time. This wasn’t just a musical act, it was a freak show! I loved it and haven’t stopped thinking about it since.

Uhhhhhhhhh. Plz!
