Headbang To An OrchestraPosted: February 22, 2012
I have an embarrassing story about this T-shirt. My sister bought it for me, and for the longest time I just thought it was a cool graphic tee. Then a friend asked me, “Oh, is that an Echo & the Bunnymen shirt?” and I was like, “Huh?” See, I didn’t even know that it says “Lips Like Sugar” on the shirt! I mean, I know the song, but that’s about it. Now I feel slightly pretentious wearing this when I know next to nothing about the band, but well, it is a cool shirt.
I wore this last Saturday when I went to a concert organized by a friend’s roommate, who’s a drummer (yeah, it’s the classic “I know a guy who knows a guy.”) It’s all classic pop and rock songs performed by an orchestra, but with a drum set – sounds weird, I know, but it’s awesome to hear an orchestral version of Enter Sandman and Sweet Child O’ Mine. I was also very excited that there was a Linkin Park song in there too (I was probably the only one to recognize it though :D)
