Damn it, Tumblr’s rubbing off on me.
i like to think this is a dinner break at the awesome-guitarist-convention that is clearly being held in waikiki.
Alright, so. I would say this performance of Thomas and Nico tied with 802 Tour. Both shows were really intimate but in different ways. This because I felt like it was more intimate on stage, and with 802 it felt really intimate for the whole audience.
They did a lot of songs they wrote together. Most of them had Thomas singing, and they were all really pretty and I would like to hear them again. They each did two songs alone, and Nico got so excited about the idea of a puppy being there, aw. Nico isn’t even cute physically, but I swear I love him so much now too because he’s so.. I don’t know. His faces always cracked me up, as well as just his voice and the random things he’d say. And I wouldn’t have minded if he and Thomas started making out on stage, alas..
Thomas’s songs were Angel’s Share and a Footloose medley and I was more than a little annoyed with the girls who were sitting behind me and kept laughing during Footloose. Yeah, it’s funny to hear a breathy quiet version of Let’s Hear It For the Boys, and I kept smiling, but it was still pretty and I would have rather heard him than them.
The piano duets were nearly the best part of it, I think. Nico did call them homoerotic and this is where all the Peter Pears/Colin McPhee stuff came in. I loved how they kind of were back to back moving together, too, like when Thomas did his leaning forward, Nico would lean back on him some. Ahh.
i absolutely loved the piano duets from bali that they did. i had no idea what to expect from them (cause i didn’t see any of the stuff earlier in the weekend), but i liked it all. i also really liked nico’s fast piece that he wrote 15 years ago. and when he was like “can i play this piano?” and then twirled around to the grand.
