American Idiot = good fun

I swear, with twitter, instagram, tumblr, facebook, and now livejournal, it's really too much for one human to keep up with. LJ is niche nerd heaven, which I appreciate, but I don't think I have enough original thought to keep all of it updated/interesting regularly.

Anyway. I saw Green Day's American Idiot at the Ahmanson in LA a few weeks ago. It was a great show, if not a typical musical in terms of narrative. I enjoyed all of the music, the dancing was fun, it was emo angsty, and had hot girls. Really, I can't ask for much more. Two of my good friends in LA are devoted theater heads, so I saw it again this past Sunday. I wouldn't normally see a musical twice in such a short window, but this one is a good one for it - you definitely miss some things because so much is happening at once. I definitely recommend seeing it while it's on tour if it comes to your area. We lotto'd both shows and got front row seats for $30, so it's a good deal if you go that route.

I had a whole Lost Girl thing I was going to post about, but I suddenly have a case of the yawns, so it'll have to wait.

How timely - I saw Next to Normal which I understand has some creative commonalities with American Idiot. I didn't care for the music of Next, but I recall seeing the cast of AI perform 21 Guns on some awards show a few years back and they were pretty awesome. I hope to see it eventually.
