Mars Volta @ Festival Hall, 25/01/10
Saw The Mars Volta at Festival Hall tonight. Amazing, as expected. Short show – two hours (was supposedly to finish at 11pm and finished at 10:30pm; no encore) – but still amazing.
Omar and Cedric are god. Together. I definitely want to have both their babies at the same time (this is actually possible – to father twins to two different men – but I digress). I am definitely going to marry Omar. And if anything ever happens to him, I will remarry, to Cedric. Omar would want that.
I wish I could be the tambourine/maracas/bongo drums player just so I could be that close to Omar. The beautiful Omar with his intense look of concentration and his cute vest and his hands playing that guitar the way I imagine they will play my body one day…
I nearly died of ecstasy (the non-narcotic kind) during the L’Via intro. Viscera Eyes was outstanding of course. They finished with Roulette Dares. No Televators – though the pub I had a pint at before the show (Carron Tavern) did put Televators on. It was two-thirds full of people who were obviously going to see the Volta.
When Omar and I are eventually married, we will join surnames. I will have a triple hyphenated name.
So cool it hurts.
Seriously though, if anyone sees me walking down the same street as Omar and Cedric, please restrain me. I don’t need a sexual assault record.
