My New Imaginary Boyfriend

Imaginary Boyfriends - I have lots of them and last night I met a few more. These aren't imaginary people, they exist, they just don't exist as my boyfriends. See I'm not THAT crazy, just a little.

Last night I went to a show at the Doug Fir.

The 88 - Opening band. Very fun, recognized a few songs, one because of The OC soundtrack. Why do I make so many embarrassing admissions on my blog? Each member of the band was intriguing for their own reasons. Brandon, on guitar, had Sideshow Bob hair (Rich deserves credit for that reference) and the red lights shining on it only added to the effect. Carlos, on bass, was adorable in a way that reminded me of an ex-boyfriend. Adam, on piano, bounced way more than I would think possible if you want to play the correct notes. Keith, on lead vocals and guitar, had a bright red tie and was quite the dancer/entertainer, played to the crowd and I bought it, and his facial expressions were beyond explanation. And Anthony, on drums, one of my new imaginary boyfriends, well the drums sounded good, but I really noticed him because, CUTE!

Matt Costa - My other new imaginary boyfriend. He's cute, he plays a mean guitar, and his songs vary from sweet ballads to sunshiny peppy songs (one is actually called Sunshine) to twinges of southern rock, all sounds I like. But he also won me over with his laid back sing along style, his soulful brown eyes, and my boy plays harmonica! If you don't know him and want to hear some of the new hotness, you can either go to his site or 3 Hive, a music sharing blog started by some college friends, check it out for other music too.

What about Davey Von Bohlen? Or is he just cute? Maybe Maritime hasn't been to Portland yet? Go here for the cuteness...bmaryansky.blogspot.com

What Ansley failed to mention is that Matt's drummer looks freakishly like Brian King, only shorter and darker hair. Even the same hairline.

All in all, a great show.

Hey, It's Ansley said...

Tam - I almost mentioned Michael Phelps in the post but thought I should keep some of my boyfriends a secret, especially those that haven't yet turned 21.

Michael Phelps said...

Are you ashamed of our relationship, Ansley?

Just thought I'd pop on and say hi to you Ansley. I still listen to that "Ed" soundtrack you made for me back in the day. :-)

Would Edward J. Stevens be another imaginary boyfriend?
