I only have time for a quick blog entry today, as I still have a lot of preparation to do for my band’s big benefit show at the Kessler Theater in Dallas tomorrow. Diamondbag is normally a Neil Diamond tribute band, but we’ve learned an entire set of new wave classics for this special prom-themed show. I ordered a “Frankie Say Relax” t-shirt from the interwebs to wear on stage, but it hasn’t arrived yet and I need to have some backup ’80s fashion options. I am now off to a vintage clothing store in search of some parachute pants and a Members Only jacket. Wish me luck in my fashion quest, and please enjoy Diamondbag’s version of the classic Buggles tune “Video Killed The Radio Star”. And yes, we are opening the show with it. I hope I don’t have to explain why…

    That was fun. I hope you packed the place!

    Also, I’d forgotten about Bruce Woolley and The Camera Club.
