I ♥ Detholz!

DS and I went ice skating at Elver Park yesterday. He was scared he wouldn't be able to stay on his feet. Considering it was his first time, I think he did pretty well.

I was happy to get to use the skates my parents got me for Christmas for the second time. Guess who has a another cut on their ankle? Yeah, me. At least this time I had the sense to stop skating before my ankle tried to fall off.

Last night, DS and I met up with KT1 and Anne to see Detholz! play at the Union. We first saw this band last November when they opened for Wilco.

This time, they were the headliner. A band called Maps & Atlases opened for them. KT1 described them as "math rock", and I described them as "awesome".

Most of their songs depended on this technique called tapping. Their fingers were FLYING!

And then came Detholz!, who brought along their groupies. Well, maybe they didn't bring them, but they were there...

Not that I don't enjoy the music, but what I really came to see was this man. He noticed I was taking his picture and posed for me in this shot. But what I really love is his dancing and facial expressions when he's playing keyboard. Mmmm, sexy! You should see his hips swivel.

The lighting was really weird, so the lead singer I was able to get good shots of, and everyone else in both bands tended to come out fuzzy if I didn't use my flash. But using my flash wasn't making cool pictures, so...

I tried to take a picture of us at the table by holding the camera over my head. Unfortunately, I couldn't tell if it was focusing, and this was the best that I got. You may not be able to tell it, but KT1 is in a dress, and her hair is CURLED. If you know this girl, you will see that this is something worth remember.

Afterwards, I got the keyboardist, who incidentally is named Jon, to sign my poster (which as the band members drawn dancing). He drew a speech bubble by his head and wrote "Thanks Jessica! ♥ Jonny 5" and then said "like the movie". And I said "Yeah, I get it" which made him laugh. *le sigh*

And this is solely for Spinning Girl: DS just told me he was going to kick me in the vajayjay.

Note: Yes, I am aware that the real Johnny 5 spells his name differently, but this Jon doesn't use an h, so it's just fine. If only he knew that I love robots. *double le sigh*
