Last night (September 6, 2002), my friend and I drove for about 2 hours to see the band, DBX. I wore my Oderus costume as a tribute to Dave and the band. Brockie was surprised to see "himself" there (he asked me, "What am I doing here?") and talked with me for a little bit about my "bad-ass" costume, before telling me he had to get a picture with me before the night was through. My friend and I then went to the other side of the bar and had a few drinks. Several people asked if they could take a picture of me or with me and at least two people thought I was actually in GWAR! I got to meet Brad (Jizmak) and Mike (Balsac) as well and all three of them were super cool guys. I was afraid they would be a little pissed at me for "biting off of them," but they all seemed to appreciate my costume for what it was -- a tribute to my all-time favorite band. Just before DBX was about to start their set, my friend and I went up front, about three people back from the stage. When the band came out, the first words out of Dave's mouth were, "We'd like to thank Oderus for showing up tonight!" The crowd went nuts and people tipped their beers to me. DBX played a few songs and then Dave said, "How do we sound, Oderus? You know, you look taller in the movies!" I did my best Oderus schtick and again the crowd cheered. About four or five songs from the end of their set, Dave leaned toward me and asked, "Dude, do you know the words to 'Fish F***'?" Of course I did, so Dave yelled into the mic, "Then get your ass up here!" Holy man! I was about to sing a GWAR song with 3/5 of the members of GWAR! Dave told me not to be nervous and just follow him, but as soon as I started singing, he backed off the mic and it was all me, baby! After the song was over, Dave shook my hand and told me that, "I kicked ass." A few of the people in the crowd also complimented me on my performance. I was so stoked -- I felt like an 8-year-old kid on Christmas morning! After their set was over, as Dave and I were waiting to have our picture taken, he told me that as soon as I started singing, he knew I knew the song and he just let me do my thing. Brad (Jizmak) also told me that I did really well. I felt like I was given one of the coolest gifts anyone could get, by three of the coolest guys I've ever met. As soon as I sign off, I am going to take my film to the developers and (assuming that everything turns out) will post pics here when I get them back. I also heard that two people got the whole ordeal on video, so Dave, myself and the owner of the bar we were at (Vnuk's) are going to try to track at least one of them down. I had such a great time -- I highly recommend that, if and when DBX is in your area, you check 'em out! Oh yeah, go see GWAR when they come around on their Halloween tour as well! That is all. EDIT: Had someone told me in 1991, when I started getting into GWAR, that sometime in the future I'd be singing one of their songs, with members of the band, I would never have believed them! I hope this doesn't make me sound like a weird, geeky, slobberin' fan, but if it does -- who cares -- I had a blast!
