Malcolm & Me, or, Standing outside a sold-out Justice show with money in my hand

I was wistfully YouTubing Justice today after missing the French electro-dance duo at Denver’s Ogden Theatre last Saturday night. After misunderestimating my ability to finagle my name onto the list, I found myself standing on a street corner in the snow, talking to a homeless man named Malcolm who was trying to hustle a few tickets. Malcolm tried to find me something but I wasn’t willing to drop sixty bucks. It was a sad hour in Fuel/Friends history. It’s okay, though, because I probably wasn’t dressed nearly hip enough – no faux-ironic neon, no skinny jeans, no ’80s pastel Reeboks.

But when I came across this video, I reconsidered my wanton frugality; did Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, Rick James, Stevie Wonder and Prince all possibly appear at the Denver show? Now I shall never know.

A girl can dream. This is all kinds of awesome.

  • Wow – those are some dead on impressions! But I have to ask – is there anything live about that performance? Sounds & looks like a bunch of acting. But I don’t know know my JUSTICE…

  • that has to be the most hilarious faux performance ever. I saw Justice when they came to Manhattan back in October and they were pretty amazing DJ’s. I’m not sure if they’ve changed their stage setup since then, but it’s your basic DJ table with a giant cross that flashes brightly in front of them from time to time. Great DJ set, but as far as stage performance is concerned, there wasn’t much of one.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
