More cowbell

Last night my nephew's band The Young Flyers opened for a band called Living Things who are touring the East Coast. When Living Things were playing, nephew drummer Andrew came marching through the crowd up to the stage playing a cowbell high over his head. Andrew is six feet six inches, so you couldn't miss the cowbell spectacle eight feet up in the air. The frontman gave him the nod, and up he jumped on stage for a minute or two, rocking out with his cowbell. I was dying laughing, and if you haven't seen the Saturday Night Live skit "More Cowbell" starring Will Ferrell and Christopher Walken, you are missing out on some seriously funny cowbell humor.

By the way, Living Things is a great rock band and are playing Tuesday night at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC. If you're around, they are well worth checking out. They're also at Lollapalooza this August. Here they are on Jimmy Kimmel a few months ago.
