Loser’s Lounge

My Thursday birthday treat was the Loser’s Lounge. They were doing a tribute to the Talking Heads this time. The picture below is of Alyson Greenfield, who was particularly great that night, and singer Tricia Scotti, one of my favorite singers who sings back-up at the Loser shows. Actually, everyone was on fire, the band especially. I decided they must really love the Talking Heads, because it brought out the best in them.

PS: I wish I was good enough to be a back-up singer. In my opinion they get the best part, making harmony. If you’ve never experienced it, it’s the most wonderful feeling in the world. It’s a full-body, extremely pleasurable sensation and it beats being the star. If you’re singing something that also means something to you, it takes you into the stratosphere of pleasure.
