Last Minute Thursday: Apocalyptica
Don't get me wrong, I understand how technically proficient the members of Apocalyptica are. As musicians go they're extremely talented, but their true genius, I believe, lies not in their skill but in their decision.
Think about it: Metallica covers on trombone? That's a bit depressing, isn't it? How about oboe? Interesting, but not quite right. Metallica covers on a theremin? Creepy.
Celebrate them for their Metallica covers. Celebrate them for their original songs. Celebrate that they're playing tonight at The Marquee starting at 6:30 p.m. Just don't forget to celebrate their decision to do all of this on cello.
