Awesome trumpets: no longer an oxymoron

Curt Ramm played with They Might Be Giants in Wednesday and last Friday’s shows, and I’ll admit, he’s given me more than a little crush on the trumpet. I’m sure Greg will be jealous. I can’t find much in terms of videos of him except for Bruce Springsteen stuff, but here’s a too-short video of him in Hotlanta when Gregory and I saw him:

And here’s one from last year, it seems.

I wanted to find a video of him just showing off like TMBG had him do at the concerts. It was shiver-inducing. The music playing on his site is quite good, though.

They Might Be Giants. Maybe.

I got to see them last weekend in Hotlanta, GA. Pretty good show, although it had a more “indie” feel than I was expecting. I guess Greg‘s idolization of them leads me to think of them as a fairly major/big-label group, which they aren’t.

They put on a good show, even though I’m never a fan of a performer looking bored as a way to look “cool”, which the accordion guy pulled. Dude, get crunk. You play an accordion.

Greg and I missed JoCo‘s opening act due to some stupid traffic in South Carolina, but I should get to see him when I go to the Charlotte version of the concert this Wednesday with Nathan and Michael.

While Greg’s off gallivanting around in San Fran, I’m going to be seeing two of his favorite musicians perform.
