Yay! We manged to get tickets for and go to all three of the free "Best Ever" events put on by Google as a promotion for HotPot in Portland. Last night was the last, featuring Y La Bamba, Typhoon & The Dandy Warhols, took place at University Chapel, pictured above.
Y La Bamba: right up my alley. Dramatic vocals from the lead singer, an accordion, castanets, a ukulele at one point, yay! Plus take a look at the neat Vintage Tiger Sweater, which she later took off, I'm sure it was hot on the stage in all those lights.
Typhoon: Lots & lots of people on stage at once! Which meant they had a very big sound. Violin, Cello, two trumpets, 3 guitars, 3 people on percussion...or something close to that.
The Dandy Warhols: Light Show! Whoa. My personal favorite was the Moire Pattern pictured above on the right. It seemed like a big concert in a small space, which is a good thing in my opinion.
