here we are at the Glass Cactus after party where the Spazmatics played.  The Glass Cactus is rated by Billboard Magazine as one of the U.S.’s top 25 hottest clubs in the U.S.  The sound quality in this venue is phenomenal, which is hard to say for most nightclubs.

i have to say, when i heard that an 80s cover band was playing, i was secretly excited, but also really hoping that they wouldn’t suck.

they didn’t disappoint.  the Spazmatics are an entertaining group of guys playing super authentic 80s covers.

they played to track, sometimes making me wonder if they were actually playing.  sure, there was the occasional pretend gee-tar strumming, but for the most part, these guys were playing.  the lead guitarist was quite talented, playing some great riffs and solos that would rival the real versions of the songs.

the lead singer had a good range, hitting some surprising high notes!

their schtick is funny.  they dress in geeky outfits, speak in awkward high-pitched voices, and tell clever (“We’ve been ovary-taken”) and sometimes some not-so-clever jokes paired with silly sound effects.


if my raspy voice, puffy eyes, and sore feet are any indication, i had a great time reliving great and awkward junior high and high school memories through their  music.

who knows what these guys off-stage, but who cares.  seems like they’ve got a great thing going playing everything from Michael Jackson to Def Leppard.

at one point, they invited some women join on stage for Oh Mickey!  little did they know the entire audience would end up on stage.

    This was one of my favorite parts of Blissdom! It’s not often I get to let my hair down and just have a good time with a bunch of fun people dancing to music from my youth. I must admit, the recovery the next day was much tougher than way back when.
