The Bangles were good. Not the greatest show in rock and roll history, but as Snookums put it, “I never thought I’d see the Bangles perform live, so it was a bit of a novelty.” They did all of their songs that people remember, as well as some new ones from their forthcoming album. And I have to say, they’re all looking damn foxy now. They look so much better than they did in the 80’s. Oh, and who knew that Susanna Hoffs was, like, three feet tall? Seriously, that girl is tiny. Snookums and I were both in agreement that she’s no longer the hottest Bangle though. Vicki – the second one from the left – takes that honor big time (even if she does hold her guitar like a handbag). I also noticed that they made quite an effort to spread the singing duties around. One girl would sing lead, and then on the next song another one would, and around and around. I had to wonder if that was built into their reunion contract. It’s like, the other three are making damn sure that Hoffs isn’t the “star” anymore. Which is a shame, because her songs were the biggest hits. The others are all very talented, but she’s the only one with a really distinctive voice. They closed with an acoustic version of “Walk Like an Egyptian” that segued into “Mrs. Robinson” in the middle. Then for their first encore they played “Eternal Flame”, during which everybody in the audience just slow-danced with their sweeties. (I have to give a huge thank you to the Snook for indulging me in my girlyness.) I wasn’t that impressed with their other encore songs, which I didn’t recognize. But overall it was a good time, and they really seemed to be enjoying themselves.
