I caught the Dresden Dolls playing in a parking lot in Little Five Points in Atlanta this weekend. The singer/keyboardist painted her face like someone in "Cabaret," and the drummer paints his face like a mime and acts like one too. While seriously overt, I was surprised how much I enjoyed them. She writes pretty interesting songs, and the drummer is fantastic, despite the miming. They covered a Black Sabbath song, which is the oldest trick in the book, but the drummer kept me interested even during that. All in all, I enjoyed them and almost bought a CD, which is very rare for me. I have no idea what they sound like on record, but I'd be interested to find out. Though probably not interested enough to go out and buy something.
