The Morning After Voltaire

And by "morning", I mean "afternoon". We didn't wake up til a bit late!
"LOOOL"

 First and foremost: You know how you get this impression about people, but they usually just disappoint your expectations of what they are like in person? Voltaire is the opposite. You get this impression of him, which is awesome, but when you meet him, you realise he is FAR, FAR COOLER than you could ever expect.

Most of the photos of him on stage were taken by Shaun, since it was literally about fifty degrees in that room and I was on a swivel chair. But do you know what? that somehow made it better. It was a really intimate show.

In short, all I can really say about him is, he is even better live than I could ever imagine. His level of interaction with his audience exceeds expectations. Oh, and we nearly made him drown in Bacardi due to the "Ex Lover's Lover Drinking Game" (which is, "When I say "die", you take a big drink. Every time.")

 He started with "Death Death (Devil Devil Devil Devil Evil Evil Evil Evil Songs)" and finished with a very heartfelt, I think, rendition of "Science Fiction Double Feature". He told some VERY funny stories about whenever he went to the airport, which concluded in him giving a woman a copy of Ooky Spooky for her kids and saying, "I think they'll enjoy Zombie Prostitute". (This is also the album with "Cantina" on it. Yeah.)

Afterwards, he hang around a very long while. As in, he went off at 11:30, and came out about ten minutes later. We didn't leave until 1:30-ish, because we were talking to him and some other people. He is an amazing guy, and I hope he comes back soon, because Melbourne loves him.

But maybe in a less closed in location next time, with some air conditioning. :P

Cannot recall what I was laughing about, but this was
not the most flattering photo of Voltaire. Poor guy was
reeeeally overheated from being on stage.
