Dresden Dolls At Bimbos

The Dresden Dolls’s reputation for crazy crazy stage shows is well deserved! There were people walking around in stilts, and lots of people dressed up. The opening band, The Red Paintings, was dressed up in kimonos and kabuki makeup. There were 2 SF groups that performed full routines during certain Dresden Dolls full of acrobatics. There were also people doing live body paintings on stage. The strange dichotomy between the Sufjan show and the Dresden Dolls explifies why I love living in San Francisco.

I’ve decided my new strategy at Bimbos shows is to take pictures of the marquee. This pic comes courtesy of my friend Shadow.

Biggest suprise of the year! The show will probably go neck and neck with Radiohead for best show of the year. I think I counted 16 members in Sufjan’s band. On top of that, there was the 24 member Pacific Mozart Ensemble choir. That’s a whopping 40 people on stage. During “Metropolis…” tons of inflated Superman were unleashed on the audience. Later during Sufjan’s Xmas song, inflated Santas were unleashed. The show was something unique, and I’m glad I could take part in such a amazing performance. More pics and video after the jump…
