Spinal Tap Unplugged Tour!

Well, sorta:

http://www.unwigged.com/index.html

I'd *love* to see these guys. They crack my ass up, and they are pretty decent musicians to boot. Alas, they aren't coming to KC.

I've been a Christopher Guest fan since the National Lampoon Radio Hour days. His rendition of "Well Intentioned Blues" *still* slays me.

"The Middle-Class Liberal Well-Intentioned Blues"

I wish I was a Negro
With lots of Negro soul
So I could stay true to my ethnic roots
And still play rock 'n' roll

If I was a funky Negro
Eating soul food barbeques
I wouldn't have to sing
The middle-class liberal well-intentioned blues

Intentioned blues
Intentioned blues . . .

I wish I was an Indian
A grown-up Sioux papoose
So when I get drunk on a beer and a half
I'd have a good excuse

I'd be a noble savage
Wouldn't ever wear no shoes
And I wouldn't have to sing
The middle-class liberal well-intentioned blues

Intentioned blues
Intentioned blues . . .

I wish I was a Wetback
On a strike in a lettuce patch
Or a slant-eyed peasant with Viet Cong
Stashed underneath my thatch

I only ever cross a picket line
To pay my union dues
To keep on singing
The middle-class liberal well-intentioned blues

Intentioned blues
Intentioned blues . . .

But I am not a Negro (c'mon!)
Not a Red Man nor a Mex (join me kids!)
I'm a member of the oppressing color
Language, age, and sex

I sympathize with the Arab cause
I feel for the put-upon Jews
And I keep singing
The middle-class liberal
Humanitarian
Meaningful dialogue
We are all responsible
Well-intentioned blues

Intentioned blues
Intentioned blues . . .

Their site says 5/14 - Phiadelphia, PA - Keswick Theatre, but the Keswick site only shows a "10 am private event" for both the 13th and 14th?

While I liked CG in Spinal Tap, I enjoyed his role as the six-fingered man in "The Princess Bride", better.

I haven't seen Mighty Wind yet, though.

If it's Unplugged, they won't be able to go up to 11, will they?
