Cansei de Ser Sweat

LovefoxxxParka.jpgCSS at Neumos

Lovefoxxx came out in a shaggy silver King Dome sized parka. Her hair was up in a space tomahawk bouffant and her face was painted. She aerobically hopped, wriggled, contorted, and sang on her hands and knees to people in the front. She asked a front row muse what his favorite alcohol was. His answer was tequila. She was genuinely happy for him that his favorite alcohol was tequila. Lovefoxxx signaled for someone to bring him tequila but because the main level of the sold out Neumos was designated all ages, no tequila was brought out. Upstairs, where there was alcohol, body heat rose from the dancing packed-in horde and it felt good to sweat one last time before winter sets in.

CSS enjoy playing live. They enjoy their songs. They had fun and it emanated throughout the animated room. White helium balloons were tied everywhere on the stage and bass player Adriano Cintra had a Spongebob balloon tied on to himself. The all ages crowd leaned and screamed in unison to Lovefoxxx’s party howl. The Neumos vibe was enthusiastically soaked in soaking it in.


Lovefoxxx kept the parka on for a while. It wasn’t just a quick showpiece. She must have been absolutely sweating balls. Finally she shed it and revealed a leotard wrapped in fake flowers and vines - a onezie. The stage was spread with dual guitars, keytars, Korg, bass, and drums. Lovefoxxx brought out a cardboard cutout of Britney Spears. It was fondled and given a keytar solo. People poured water on their heads and for the encore, people frenzied and ripped at their own shirts. There was lots of eye glitter and estrogenic power. “Left Behind” was a highlight, although there really were no low points of the show. It was all delivered up and switched on. The set seemed fast.

CSS are beloved. Cansei de Ser Sexy. They belove back. They are donkey. Their performance for and interaction with the crowd imparts a true sense of party. The rock and disco sounds of this band from Sao Paulo, Brazil aptly get a crowd off.

Wow. I would say that it looks like a good time but those pictures are just terrible. Why would you even bother posting those along with the blog?

You are right nobutyeahbutnobutyeah. They suck. But they show an approximation of what was going on. I was there and thought the pictures represented what went on. I wish I had a good one of Lovefoxxx in the parka.

And if I didn't post pictures, someone like you would have said, how come there are no pictures? How lame is it that you don't have pictures.

So I posted them. They're not perfect. Neither are you.

If you got better pictures, point me to em. Please.

Remember kids, a phone is not a camera.

Nope. No phone. I use a Kodak C763. 7.1 mega pixels and shit. Low light's a bitch.
