Comin' from a Go-Go!
Hard to top Friday's SOLD OUT Christmas show at the State Theater, which included the incredible sight of a long line wrapping around the corner and into the parking lot. More than a hundred fans were turned away! Awesome!
As were dynamic new versions of Wake Me Up Before We Go-Go, Gloria (80s version, natch), a Roam/Love Shack medley and the appearance onstage of a signer-for-the-deaf who punctuated every nuance of the before-encore closer, Do They Know It's Christmas (Feed the World).
Plus, the band LOOKED great -- the gals pure Voices Carry vogue, the guys nodding to The Jam, Adam Ant, hair power and blue-collar cool. Add to that the debut of the Leghorns -- actual brass! -- and the show was pure McFly.
The Legwarmers know how to pick what was fun and hip from the first video age and make it new and smart all over again. In an era when the raw of punk has become the 'reality' of Punk'd, the Warmers are savvy and talented enough to bust through the too-cool-for-that cynicism that keeps too many people from smiling these days. I'll promise you this: Even Paris Hilton woulda whooped and danced -- for real -- Friday night.

Great show at the State Theatre 12/12/03, but how about adding some R&B tunes into the mix?
I have no a$$
I attended the Legwarmers show on Friday December 12, 2003.
Cru Jones and his friends rocked my a$$ off.
The show cost 7 dollars.
The band played until 1:30 Am.
It was a great value.
The Leg Warmers are a terrific band.
I really like them a lot.
Rock Over London. Rock On Chicago.
Diet Pepsi. Uh-huh.
You guys are A-mazing!
I just went to see your show last night and I have to say I have never seen a band rock so much doing '80s covers. I liked the spikey haired dude, he looked like the big brother from the Goonies. The bassist looked like Robert Smith from The Cure. Anyway, I had a lot of fun.
