OK GO - November 15, 2006
OKGO=Tim Nordwind, Andy Ross, Damian Kulash & Dan Konopka
"A Million Ways"
This video was shot in a single,
Just Jess & I...
We were, of course, up front... maybe 7 to 10 rows of bodies back.
Everyone was jumping! It was beautiful madness!!!
AND THEN.... (lead singer) Damian, jumps down onto the floor....
With a wired microphone, no less!!!
Walks 7 to 10 rows back into the crowd.....
Stands right next to Jess and me while singing his heart out!!!!
The beat-up little theater was an incredible container of wild movement, profuse sweating, and insane, musical joy!!!!
What a Great Show!!!
(THANK YOU JESS... FOR INVITING ME INTO THIS!!!)
"Here It Goes Again"
And as a bonus to this great show, afterwards, when we went outside,
and Jess and I were going on to each other
about what had just transpired...
There, standing at the curb, was the drummer, Dan Konopka, getting some much-needed air, and changing his soaked shirt!!! Well... I waited until he put on his nice new dry shirt... and politely asked him to sign the shirt I had just bought inside!!! He, very kindly, obliged!!!
After he signed, he realized he signed over the image of Damian,
and not himself!
I said... "Well, go ahead and sign it again, on top of your picture!" He laughed, and said something like, "Ha, ha! You already got my autograph, now you want another?!"
WHAT A DIVA!!!!
SO HERE'S THE SHIRT!
It's hard to see from this shot, but Dan's signature is on the figure on the right.
It's getting a little faded.
I try not to wear it,
to preserve it. But it's hard!
I really like the shirt!!!!
"This Too Shall Pass" (Rube Goldberg Machine version)
(Going to see them at the TLA again 5/3/10!!!!!)
