Music London Calling
I’m in London and Patrick Swayze is performing in Guys and Dolls in the West End. Eat your hearts out, suckers.
But I didn’t come to see Swayze. I came to see the Scissor Sisters in Trafalgar Square tomorrow night. I’ve known the lead singer—Jason then, Jake now—since he was a 15 year-old gay kid going to Northwest School. The Scissors Sisters are absofuckinglutely huge here, and it’s fun getting to be part of Jason’s entourage for the weekend. This is the first time in my life—and will be, without a doubt, the last time in my life—that I’ve been able to walk into clubs and recording studios and onto stages and say, “I’m with the band.â€ť
If you haven’t heard the Scissor Sister’s new album yet—Ta-Dah—go get your hands on one as soon as it’s released in the states. It’s fucking tremendous.
