I love when bands perform in costume. To me, it makes it clear: they’re there to entertain you, not to exorcise their own creative demons or live out their high art. And I appreciate that. Not to say a lot of great performances don’t come from people who make music for themselves and no one else, but I often find the most entertaining shows come from people who do it for the kids. And I can’t think of anything that could motivate a band to don a goofball costume for fourteen years more than The Kids.
To win tix, you must either provide a link, in the comments, to yourself wearing a silly costume, like this, or to a suitably silly stand-in, like this. A few random winners will be chosen to go party at the Fonda this Friday. Costume optional. But if you ask me, it’s highly encouraged.
