I saw the Fab Faux last night, and they were spectacular. Some of the guys are friends of mine, so like any gig friends do my tendency is to say, "Yeah, I'll get there one of these days..." but the couch always seems of much more immediate importance. We had a dreadful day yesterday, put one of the cats to sleep, there was nothing I wanted to do less than see a show. But we went anyway and I'm glad we did. When you see a band that good playing songs that good, five great singers, a string section, a horn section, it's really something to behold. It's a close copy of the Beatles, not slavish, but it is also very good in its own right. For those who don't know the band was started by Will Lee, the bass player from the Letterman Show, and Jimmy Vivino, the bandleader on Conan O'Brian's show.
