What's in that box?

This Tuesday night I saw the first ever show of Wakey!Wakey! with a full band! And what a band: bass, cello, viola and violin, drums, second keyboard plus a guest accordionist and guitar player. It all comes down to solid pop with the extra of subtle lyrics and Mike Grubbs definitely is a talented singer with a great voice. One could feel that the band had been rehearsing hard and the place was jammed-packed with people who were really excited to hear this premier. Check out the movie of 'Messy Girl':

I am so waiting for his first single to come out! Who cares about sleazy Gavin with the hat? Mike is so much hotter!

The second performer at the cross-pollination event at Pianos was Casey Shea with his band. At the guitar was the universally known Jeff Jacobson, Casey's good old pal from 'The Undisputed Heavyweights'. The setup was the classic Beatles formation and Casey's music reminds a little of that era too, but with a slight 80s touch and a big smile on the face. And boy, he can pull off wearing long hair and a moustache! Watch and listen for yourselves:


The highlight of the night was of course the actual 'cross-pollination': the two performers shared the stage for three songs and it all culminated in a cover version of 'Dick in a Box', originally performed by Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg. Lucky me that I was recording it, it was hilarious:


There are lots of pictures of that night in my photodiary if you are hungry for more.

Oh, and after the show, just around the corner from the Pianos, we spotted Chloe Sevigny. Poor girl, obviously she didn't know where the real shit was going down. Maybe someone should tell her about next week: cross-pollination again on Tuesday night, this time with Here lies Pa and Jay Mankind. But boys, as much as I love you, it's going to be tough to follow up on that show!
