the rufus concert
went to the rufus wainwright concert last night.
it was an outdoor concert and it rained all evening so despite the fact we were freezing messes and looked like drowned rats by the end, the concert was a grand time.
the magic numbers and a fine frenzy opened up for him, both of which were pretty darn enjoyable considering opening bands often suck badly.
i used to wait on rufus and his boyfriend on a pretty regular basis at the soho house. they were always nice as can be.
he chats a lot between songs and is terribly funny. he had several costume changes. he did some judy garland. i fell in love with his trumpet player, as is my way. a concert isn't truly a concert until i start fantasizing about the trumpet player, honestly.
a crazy german girl was singing along to every single song which would have driven me crazy but she had a lovely voice so i didn't mind.
the "encore" was literally another full set (6 songs or so).
in all, freezing rain aside, it was pretty awesome. would see him again in a second.
