I'll Wear Any Color As Long As It's Black

I had really hoped to post this before Wednesday so any New York friends would be reminded to go, but an onslaught of visitors and partying left me without any free time. Anyway ChameleonsVox played in Boston on Tuesday night. While ChameleonsVox is not the original Chameleons, it is Mark Burgess with a backing band playing Chameleons songs. My friend Glenn (of Blacklist / Cult of Yotuh / Wierd) was playing drums and — obviously — I am a huge Chameleons fan, so even though the show was at some weird irish pub, I still had to go and I am so fucking glad I did. There was just something really special about hearing all of those songs I know so well and love so much and to see them in such an intimate setting with a backing band made up of fans — people who want to get that music out there again — instead of watching a bunch of old dudes in some huge venue where the magic would have been totally lost on anyone who had never seen the original band. It really was awesome. I heard that the two shows in New York were incredible as well and there are more dates on the east and west coast to follow. I would really urge anyone who has even a passing interest in this band to check it out as you will be completely blown away. One thing I always complain about is reunion shows and how they seem pointless because you are missing everything that made the original band/scene/etc interesting and exciting in the first place. This is the exact opposite of that. You get to feel it all. And it feels fucking good.
