Early this month, Naoto and I went out on a school night for another fun Chris & Heather event. If you’ve been around here long enough, you know how much we love going to the Calendar Show every December. The 16mm Film Festival has a similar vibe, but, at least for the May show, there were more old commercials mixed in and only one music act.
The commercials were from before my time, but you could feel the nostalgia in the room. I loved this Kiss action figure one especially.
And who knew there was a Farrah doll? The little boy in this commercial cracked everyone up.
And of course there were lots of videos of musical acts. George Jones is always a favorite and so is Buffalo Springfield.
To start the show, Chris sang a tribute to Cynthia Plaster Caster who died recently. He sang his song “Little Girl” which was really soft and sweet.
The rest of the show was Chris doing his quirky, smart, charming thing. His music is wacky and fun. He writes songs for The Flat Five, our favorite local band, and also has released several of his own albums. (His newer albums are available on Spotify and I’ve added a few of his songs to my summer playlist.)
We’re going back for the June show on our anniversary this week!
