Alrighty, Kid A, I mean, kids! It’s time for another Vagabond Saints Society bag of gooey wonderfulness and yes, again, it’s at the “home” of VSS – and Official Music Sponsor of The Less Desirables – The Garage!
This time, we’re tackling a long-requested, special interest show. Radiohead. After the KISS onlaught in November, The BCPF and I were able to sit in on a planning meeting with the “powers that be” in VSS and hash out some of the schedule for the upcoming year. At this meeting, I don’t know that they got the latter parts of the year worked out, and the goodbye to David Bowie was completely a last-minute thing, but they did get one thing settled: they were going to do OK Computer in its entirety and staple Vagabond Saints Socialite, Patrick Ferguson of the band Vel Indica, would do the lead vocals of the highlighted album.
In addition, there will be other Socialites doing a few other select Radiohead songs and there’s talk of possibly having a few people doing songs that aren’t on the auxiliary list or OK Computer. Well, I’m going to go ahead and admit that I don’t really care one way or another about Radiohead, but I am a huge fan of one song in particular, one that isn’t on OK Computer, but is on the list of auxiliary songs and the awesome Doug Davis allowed me to have that one. It probably helps that I knew about it and was able to request it at first mention online. This song is “Creep.” I’ve been looking forward to this, a lot.
I thought all of this had been derailed this week. I came down with a cold, or some comparable illness and I’ve been fighting with my voice since last Thursday. I think I have mostly taken care of it, but I will have to still be careful. Luckily, there’s only one part of the song that I have to belt out and I think I can get through that okay. We’ll see, but I think it’s good to go.
The show, as I said, is at The Garage and, as always, the doors open at 8p and the show is scheduled to start at 9p. It will probably be a big deal, so you’ll want to make sure you don’t have to listen out on the sidewalk. Show up and be counted! Hope to see you there!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
