Alejandro and the Fame: Live In Concert

For those who missed (or those who simply want to relive it), here's the complete (minus the talky parts) Alejandro & the Fame performance from last Friday, May 20, at the Boston University Theatre for the Huntington Theatre Company's 35 Below party. It was pretty epic. (and yes, some of the video is blocked by people, but you were more interested in listening than seeing anyway, weren't you? Thought so)

We also did an encore of a Foo Fighters song that we never actually rehearsed. The songs we played were all the songs we knew, but the crowd really wanted an encore, and most of us knew the song, so we tried went with it. One girl even grabbed our lead singer from the crowd and said "I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU PLAY JUST PLAY ANYTHING." So we did.
