here’s a video of me singing

4 Mar

A couple weeks ago, I got to sing with one of my favorite bands, Metal Feathers, at Port City Music Hall. It was so much fun and I’m really proud of myself for not throwing up or forgetting all the words or falling off the stage.

 

 

While I’m proud of my singing in this video (taken by Mike Cunnane of Brass Cankles and being my boyfriend), I also like it because I think I look wicked cute. I don’t have a double chin or crossed eyes and I love my outfit. Let’s talk about my outfit!

The two best parts of my outfit were birthday presents: my sweet Doc Martens from my supercool sister Rachel, and my slutty slutty dress from my mom. At first, my mom refused to believe that this dress was not underwear, but after much Clueless quoting from my friend Kate, she came around. I’m also wearing a stretchy gold vintage belt from Material Objects, two pair of tights, and my own jewelry.

Metal Feathers is playing tonight at the Apohadion with Brenda, Corpse Pose, and the Milkmen’s Union. You can listen to their new album here, and surprisingly, the perpetually out-of-touch and out-of-town Sam Pfiefle wrote a very nice review. I especially like the description of the Keith Richards jewelry box.

what Amazon.com thinks I want

Hello, Kate. We have recommendations for you.

Based on your interest in knee-high Doc Martens, we assume that you are covered in scars from various mosh pits and knife fights.

You must get into all kinds of trouble, you wacky iconoclast, you!

 

You’re a little bit goth, and a sucker for nostalgia.

 

But mostly, you’re just hopelessly trapped in the nineties.
