The rest of the show was laden with hokey singing, more announcements of how drunk the musicians were, and fantastic time stops and switches between genres. About the only thing I didn’t hear was classical music and traditional Eastern Indian music. It reminded me of Frank Zappa, only cruder.
This was one of the few times I’ve seen a mosh pit at TC’s. My friend and Observer photographer Adrian Wylie had a hilarious take on the scene: “I’ve been wondering what Cheech and Chong have been doing,” he laughed. “Now I know.”
Counter Cosby is one of the opening acts at TC’s Speakeasy on Friday, October 3, and headlines a show at the Blind Pig on Thursday, October 30.
