The British Skulls
Samuel and I went to see the debut concert of The British Skulls last night. The Skulls are a "girl group." By that I mean they are between the ages of 8 and 9. They played to a full house in the living room of the co-lead singer.
Unfortunately, all did not go smoothly. They belted out the first two numbers without incident. The first was called "We Rock," and the second had something to do with a ghost. But on the opening notes of the third, there was some sort of communication problem.
I think the actual words were, "Just shut up and play the song."
The keyboard player stomped off the stage, followed by the co-lead singers.
After about twenty minutes of crowd encouragement (and some parental intervention), two of the three members returned for an encore. One held her ground and refused to take the stage. But by the end of the evening they were friends again.
Nevertheless, this is probably the end of The British Skulls. Rock-and-roll takes no prisoners.
