season of the witch
The Rasputina show was a blastthey seem to have gotten more comfortable with touring in the last few years, and someone has finally figured out how to properly mike a cello. Only two cellists this time, plus the male drummer who gamely wore a corset of his own. We got to congratulate him on it personally, since the band walked right past us on their way in and out. The set wasn't heavily slanted toward Cabin Fever!which was nice, since I've only ever heard half the album, at Lauren's apartmentand the covers were guaranteed crowd-pleasers all. They did the versions of "Rock & Roll" and "Wish You Were Here" off The Lost & Found EP, but we also got cello renditions of "Blister in the Sun," "Bad Moon Rising," and, inexplicably, the first thirty seconds of "Baby Got Back." They also get kudos for coming to Tucson and avoiding Phoenixnobody does that.
