I Knew The Bride When She Used to Rock and Roll

You know that part in my profile bio where it says "I used to be a chick singer in an unsuccessful rock and roll band."?

Proof, courtesy of friend and fannish historian
[personal profile] gerisullivan , who unearthed pictures of one of the times the band was successful; when we were guests of honor at the 1985 Minicon, in Minneapolis (and thanks to her for letting me link to her post.)

As I say in the comment I made over there, the picture of me singing with my eyes open was a rare and anomalous moment in entertainment history. I normally could not open my eyes and look at the audience. I have no idea, since I certainly was able to keep my eyes open when I acted onstage.

Jesus Harold Christ, I was young.

Also? I married the handsomest man in the world. Also also, we had the best lawyer-bassist anywhere; Dr. Gonzo.

I was, upon occasion, capable of rocking out, old-school style. Heh.

And you've made my morning with your response, my dear. A long time ago, but it was a fun time, even if we never did become big stars. Heh.

*hugs and best wishes for your week*

I love your red hair and big suit--so very 80s!

Oh, you have no idea how 80s we were; except that we played music that people couldn't figure. No synths, covers of Warren Zevon, three-part harmony Elvis Costello stuff, the occasional original, all with guitars out front.

I was so tickled to see these pictures; I don't believe I'd ever seen any shots of us playing at that particular gig - one of the gigs I really relished, because it was a fannish gig.

00k!
If I'm counting on my fingers correctly, that con was a first Bermuda Triangle bid party, so whatever I was using for a brain at the time was elsewhere.

Heh ... so you were probably hosting a bid party.

Also? Icon love.
