Blue eyed dressed for every situation.

Yes, tonight's the night! Yazoo [Yaz here in the U.S.] are playing at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles. For years I've ranted and raved about how much 80's music has had such a profound influence in my life. Their first album UPSTAIRS AT ERIC'S was one of my first LP's that I bought with my own money. It's hard to belive that I've been dying to see this band ever since I was a little 'new wave' teen back in suburban Maryland. All of my hopes were shattered after they broke up a year or so later with their sophomore effort YOU AND ME BOTH. Forget the fact that I've seen Depeche Mode 4 times live. Forget the fact that I've seen Erasure 3 times live. Forget the fact that I've seen a lot of my favorite bands and performers from back in the day live already [Depeche Mode 4x's, Erasure 3x's, Duran Duran 2x's, Madonna 2.5x's, Culture Club, Tears for Fears, Human League, Howard Jones ...]. Now -- over 25 years later, all will be better in this world tonight ... at least for me! LOL. I'm going stag tonight. There was a little ticket buying debacle that happend but I didn't let that stop me. A full report and (hopefully) some pictures to follow.

I can't believe you got to go to this. I am so so so jealous.

And you know what - that line - blue eyed dressed for every situation - is my favourite line, from my favourite song!

Yazoo are timeless. I've been in clubs recently where they've been played and they are as relevant and modern today as they were twenty years ago.

email me - tbnil@hotmail.com - and let me know how it went!

I'm too jealous for words.
