Mono-vember bootleg #4

Prom time!

Hello lads and lasses--

Well well well. January has come and gone, and here we are with our last installment in our live-from-Pehrspace bootleg series. I had some laughs. I cried some tears. I ate some kelp. And you?

This week's recording comes from the Winter Wonderland Formal Prom, and as such there are a number of seasonal touches--namely our latest Christmas song opus, "Hot Sleigh," receiving its live debut. And then there's the slow jam. We debated long and loudly about what would make the absolute best slow-dance prom number, and although there were several strong contenders ("I Want To Know What Love Is" lost by just a hair) we eventually settled on "Hello" by Lionel Richie. Since it's a cover, and since we recorded it, I'm just going to go ahead and declare it our Song Of The Month, even though nobody actually requested it (tough luck, bastardos!)

This week's special musical guest was Jillinda Palmer of Breakups/Damselles/I Make This Sound/Spongebob fame! She said she couldn't hear herself at all during the show, but since she was kinda close to the room mic you can hear her okay. Thanks Jillinda!

The set list:
1. Hot Sleigh
2. I Must Be Dreaming
3. I Keep Knocking
4. I Heard Her Calling From Another Room (there's a lot of songs that start with "I" in this set, aren't there?)
5. Hello
6. CA 3A 569
7. Don't Dance
8. Hearts Going Steady

So awesome! But how bittersweet knowing there's not going to be another next week. This post, however, is incomplete without ema's masterful "Prom Queen."

"Prom Queen" is coming, it gets its own post. Don't worry.
