"Unwigged & Unplugged" and Awesome

Went to see Unwigged & Unplugged - an evening with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer - last night at the Wiltern. They performed songs from A Mighty Wind, Waiting for Guffman, and of course, Spinal Tap. Along with all the greatest hits, they also had a few video treats including a clip of Spinal Tap's first ever public appearance - on a TV show in 1979. And among the many highlights of the show was an amazing cabaret version of the all-time classic "Big Bottom."

Also, I now know that Nigel Tufnel no longer has an amp that goes to eleven, but one that actually goes to infinity. Priceless.
