can you picture that?

So tonight I went to House of Blues on Sunset to go see the Socal Vocals. We actually ended up missing their first song, but the band that was playing when we first got there, Quazar & the Bamboozled, was by far the strangest thing I've ever seen on stage. I can't tell you for sure how many members they have, but I know at one point I counted 13, and I think that might have been a low point. Check out these pictures. They'll give you some vaque idea of what I'm stillll struggling to understand. The music itself reminded me of Ben Folds on crack, but I have to say that they weren't bad. They put on a show, and they played well. I was just in system overload the entire time. And it didn't help that they played the song "Can You Picture That?" and all I could think of was Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem in the original Muppet Movie. And yet... There are unmistakable similarities...
