A Buckethead Kind of Date

I took Keene out on a date last night. I bought concert tickets to Buckethead (one of his favorite performers). Spent a lot more money than I had planned, but oh well. Unfortunately, Keene was pretty sick the whole night.

But hey, a night out is a night out, right?

I had never seen or heard Buckethead before and I was very impressed. I got a little bored at times because, for me, it's hard to tell songs apart without lyrics.

From what I gathered, his appeal is that he's super quirky and considered one of the best (and fastest) guitarists of all time. He's also very entertaining: robot-dancing, handing out toys, using nunchucks. He even did the Thriller dance (apparently he's a big Michael Jackson fan).
