. . .The Soft Boys took the stage. They rule the earth.
The place RAWKED. The band seemed to really be enjoying
themselves, Kimberley Carvey was hilarious, Morris drank Anchor Steam and
looked cool, Matthew seemed to be having the time of his life, Robyn &
Kimberley had a couple of terrific guitar duels (during one of 'em they
actually morphed into a riff that sounded kind of almost sort of like "I Got
The Hots", which is good enough for me), Thomas Dolby joined 'em for
"Sideways" and one or two others. "Pervert" nearly broke my neck--each
member of the band is of course doing something different in that song and I
just kept darting my attention from one guy through the next. "Underwater
Mooonlight" was awesome... "In the beginning was the excuse," followed by a
list of excuses, and at the end of the 'feed the fish' part Robyn slips in a
nod to Country Joe by yelling "gimme an F" right before the chorus kicked in
(I think I may have been the only person in the audience who actually gave
him an F, though). YFF joined 'em for the final final final encore, Give It
To The Soft Boys and everyone went home happy.
