That was my gamble in missing it...

man, Kiki got drunk off her ass last night (my friend hadda grab her when she almost fell off a table). She read a lot of lyrics off a stand, following the example of a recent show by 94-year-old former Marx Brothers ingenue Kitty Carlisle. Best line of the night was "I may not know the words, ladies and gentlemen, but I understand the song." (Best anecdote to nowhere was about her sister's delight that Farrah Fawcett shares her malady of ass cancer.)

Among the new (to me) adds to the repertoire:

The Indelicates - "Waiting for Pete Doherty to Die"

I'd like to renege on previous comments of "not getting it"; three shows in thirty days cured me of that. Truly, I've never seen a more punk-as-fuck show. Last watch was ringside about three feet away and my table mates and I got just BLASTED; watching K+H at that proximity is some serious dick-in-a-blender action.

Now I just have to figure out if it translates to record well...

I've got both their records, and while it's a good way to introduce people to them (see anecdote above), it's not the same as the "oh shit, what's she going to do next?" experience of seeing them live.

But I bet someday people are going to trade recordings of K&H live the way they do with Bill Hicks or Andy Kaufman recordings now.

that sounds entirely plausible, but... hmmm

I might be lying. I might be remembering how much you loved his Robyn Hitchcock film.

K & H nominated for a Tony Award; world to end.

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 17 May 2007 15:10 (ten years ago) Permalink

Imagine the acceptance speech.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 17 May 2007 15:15 (ten years ago) Permalink

I suspect it might not appear on the CBS segment on the show... which means PBS will have the 7-sec delay standing by!

i want to see kiki and herb :(

Their Knitting Factory show is tnite, JW. (also Memorial Eve at Joe's)

Their only opposition in that Tony category is a one-man ventriloquist show.

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 17 May 2007 19:10 (ten years ago) Permalink

two last shows pubside; i'm likely doing both.

forksclovetofu, Thursday, 17 May 2007 21:44 (ten years ago) Permalink

gr8 seeing you forks! Did you have anything to do with our ticket snafu getting cleared up? I wasn't sure.

I didn't recall how elaborate K&H's version of "I Was a Maoist Intellectual" is ... the Chelsea boys were baffled.

Also, it's important to know that ass cancer trumps leukemia.

Hey dude, glad you made it out!
Yeah, a thoroughly awesome evening... but LONG!

I think I saw them go 3 hours at least once at Fez.

Defeated for a Tony by a DUMMY!

That's too respectable for them anyway.

Funny thing was I saw Kiki introduce Borts Minorts at a show in SF this past Saturday. Kiki was great, Borts Minorts was not.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 14 December 2007 16:14 (ten years ago) Permalink

Variety review of Wed night @Carnegie Hall (I skipped):

"If there's a sniper in the audience, I ask only that you kill me now," pleaded Kiki. "Don't make me go through this whole show just to shoot me later."

wtf, identifying "If You Were Born Today" as a Jimmy Eat World song?

Dr Morbius, Friday, 14 December 2007 16:22 (ten years ago) Permalink

Boy, I would've loved to have seen that.

I saw them at the Opera House in Sydney for so cheap (esp. considering the insane price of tickets for them in SF the last time around), but strangely the show was almost EXACTLY the same as the one I saw New Year's Eve two years ago.

"The neoliberals vs. the neofascists—I'm just happy that I've lived to see this spectacular bipolar moment."
