Do You Brush Your Teeth Before You Kiss?

On Saturday I came extremely close to having a devastating night without Damien Rice. I was lucky enough to have Kellen to go with at the last minute and we had a fabulous time. We took the LIRR (Long Island Railroad) out to Jones Beach Theatre and watched two of the most passionate performers I've ever seen. The only disappointment was that Damien didn't sing Cannonball or Blower's Daughter or Lonelily... but he did sing quite a few songs that I was unfamiliar with and fell in love with at first listen. His lyrics are so passionately heartbreaking. I think there's a little part of each of us that can relate completely. The venue was amazing. The water surrounds the entire stage and then the stadium comes out onto the land. It's a pretty sweet setup.

Fiona was a nut. She flailed her arms and legs like Elaine from Seinfeld and sat/laid on the stage during different parts of the performance filled with emotion. After the concert we went to Tom's Restaurant - of Seinfeld - and got some grub. I got home around 3:30. I'm still a little tired.

I've been to that restaurant! Too bad they only use the outside and not the inside in the show, eh? I loved all of the paraphernalia on the walls, though!

Is there something more implied in this title? Was it Kellen, or Damien? Do tell...

Steph said...

Whats with the title to this post? Are those words to one of his songs? I have his O CD....hmm.

Yancy, yes he played Volcano. Of course he played Volcano. :) At the show on Saturday AND the one last night at Central Park (I sat outside the venue and listened). I love Damien.

Steph and Mollie - the title is not a title of one of Damien's songs, nor does it describe any activites with Kellen :P -- it is a line from one of his unrecorded (but hopefully soon to be released) songs called Accidental Babies. Now if I had put THAT as the title, wouldn't you be wondering a little more??
