On March 20th a group of the usual suspects headed to the State Theater to see The Legwarmers. For those of you that don’t know them, The Legwarmers are an 80s tribute band. If you can get to a show I highly recommend that you do as it is an amazing time. Everyone gets dressed up in some kind of 80s costume, drinks way too much and dances and sings the night away. The band really does play just about anything and everything from the 80s; from Rick Springfield‘s “Jessie’s Girl” to Van Halen‘s “Panama” they really do play everything. There really isn’t a song that they play that you won’t be singing along with and realizing that you pretty much know all the words (which is kind of scary).
The reason we all were getting together in the first place was to help celebrate Red’s birthday (and it just so happened that it was also Cliff’s birthday too) so we started out at Red and Supe’s place for a bit of pregame. It was here that we realized who the real star of the show would be this night when Woody showed up dressed like Richard Simmons.
Takes a real set of balls to show up someplace dressed like that. Kudos Woody.
We were all pretty liquored up already as we piled into the cabs to head to the show. Of course we had to get there early to be the first in line for when the doors open. We pretty much take over a small section of The State when we are there and we need to get there early to stake out the area.
So we got in pretty quickly and moved to our little area and started working our way through their beer and liquor stores. I think that pretty much everyone ended up pretty shitfaced.
Once we got inside everyone wanted their picture taken with Woody. Is that George Michael?
Once the band started playing everyone was singing…
….Rachel and Red are really going for it here…but the funny part is Woody’s face..he looks tickled almost as pink as his purse…
Then everyone started dancing…
….or if you are Rick you just try to dry-hump Woody….
The show was great and when it was over most of us no longer had much of a voice left and were way to drunk to be driving. Luckily, Super P had arranged a party bus for our ride home. But what we didn’t know was that there was going to be pole dancing for our entertainment on the ride home…
…poor drunk Cliffy just trying to take a bit of a nap.
Another successful trip to The Legwarmers.
Can’t wait til we do it again next year.
