So we've been making Wang Chung jokes among ourselves all week long after we found out that we were to open for them at my home town venue, The Vibe Lounge in Rockville Centre. But the truth of the matter is this; They Were Awesome!
They played their hits (of course) but not just right off the record but with beautifully intricate new arrangements which brought them into the realm of prog rock all the while keeping their pop sensibilities intact. The hilights (to me) were "Fire In The Twilight" and a semi-acoustic version of "To Live and Die in L.A.".
The band was incredibly tight and focused and their performances were totally relaxed.
It was a privilage to be their supporting band. Who'd a thunk you coulda seen such a great show five minutes from your own house?
