Last night Leslie, Ben, Allen and Leslie's friend Gretchen (who is in town visiting) were going to go see Infinity at Spaceland, and I was going to skip it, but honestly, how can you skip it when Infinity is a lesbian Journey cover band???

Leslie and Ben saw them by chance last year, and have been talking about it ever since. Last night was mine and Allen's (and obviously Gretchen's) first experience with Infinity. I have to admit, they had been a little oversold. Apparently their stage show is usually a lot, well let's just say more. Last night was a pretty tame version.

In LA, if you want to have a cover band have some sort of following, you have to have some sort of gimmick- in this case its the fact they're lesbians. And they're really good at it. The lead singer kind of looks like Steve Perry, which is scary, except she apparently loves it. She wears fake side burns to add to the likeness. The drummer wears a fake moustache. There are two guys in the band which does kind of ruin the effect. I heard people commenting on it last night.

Anyway, it was good to get out of the house and do something.
