We went to the Orange County Fair yesterday. Bought a few things, ate a few things (including a deep fried Klondyke Bar which I didn't think was that good.) And then saw a concert. :)

Chris Isaak puts on a very entertaining show. He's always making funny remarks, wearing sequined suits and just having a really good time. He started off by thanking us all for turning off the tv, getting off the couch, locking the kids in the closet and coming out to support live music. He said if we weren't there, he'd just be wandering around the fair in a sequined suit eating deep fried butter and that, in fact, his band was the musical equivalent of deep friend butter. He ran into the audience on one of his songs and raced right past us. There were a couple of times I was laughing so hard my eyes were streaming.

He said they had gone down to Sun Recording Studios in Memphis (where all the people he listened to as a child recorded (Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison....) That they had recorded about three albums worth of music and it would be coming out presently. And that we could order it soon but it would require a computer and ah, ah, a ouija board. Sounds like he doesn't get on too well with itunes. *g*

Anyway, here's an assortment of you tube links if you're wondering what his concerts are like:

A good song to see what his concerts are like:
