The Donnas rock. I suppose I could end right there.
But, to give more detail, I could say
they rock hard and fast and don't really give a fuck about being overly
poetic. I wish I was like that. That's why I like them, I guess.
They're not like me and only in my wildest fantasies am I like them.
And, this is made more real when I see them live. Standing up there,
all defiant and screaming, they are the way I feel on a good day. The
sign of a good live show, for me, is when the band has the presence to
make me feel like I could get up there and rock just like them, because
I want to be them, if only for one glorious night.
The Donnas do that for me. And, by the looks of things, they did for most everyone else at the show as well.
The set was, unfortunately, short-lived, only about an hour including
the encore. But, since most of their songs are under 3 minutes, it sort
of makes sense. The set mixed in a few songs from their first two
albums, but they stuck primarily with the newest album, Get Skintight.
There were a few songs I would have liked to hear, but all in all, I
walked out of there wanting to call up ex-boyfriends and scream into
the phone, "I DIDN'T LIKE YOU ANYWAY." And, that's a good thing.
