Tenacious D Get Out And Vote ’08

-A.S. The Beastie Boys took the stage to a roar from the crowd. MCA asked one crowd member why they waited 20 years to see them. Ad-Rock chimed in, asking where the person was the last time they were in town. Mike D added in some banter about drinking a bacon Bloody Mary in Milwaukee. The goofiness from the 3 MCs set the tone, as they introduced Tenacious D.

Jack Black and Kyle Gass did their stretches onstage to warm up, and surprised me by opening with “Kielbasa Sausage” at a Get Out and Vote concert. Next up was “The History of Tenacious D,” which Black assured the crowd were feats they had actually accomplished and not just a list of B.S.This photo of Zack and Kyle Gass at Rothbury is Zack’s first appearance on the blog in almost a month.

Black asked Gass who he was voting for, and when he replied with undecided, Black launched into a verbal assault on Gass. This prompted Gass to storm off the stage, mooning the crowd on the way out. Black told the crowd he was thankful that Gass’ shirt protected them from a full moon. Black lured Gass back to the stage with “Dude (I Totally Miss You).”

Other antics from the D included Black playing baby making music on a toy saxophone while Gass boogied with his pants around his ankles. During “The Government Totally Sucks” Black wiped out while trying to walk onto a speaker rack at the front of the stage. He shot up, informing the crowd that he was ok. At songs end, he said that he hoped nobody was YouTubing his fall.

Black said he asked Crosby and Nash if they were playing “Ohio” and since they weren’t, Black and Gass sang a bit of the song until Black decided they were butchering a classic. During “City Hall” Black had two decrees to make. One was the legalization of marijuana. The other was legalizing gay marriage, “because they are human beings.” All Gass could come up with was no more male butt floss on the beach.

If I was surprised at the opener, I was even more so to hear “F*ck Her Gently.” After, the crowd sang along to every word of “Tribute.” Then Black went all Ron Burgundy on the crowd, saying he wished he could make love to every single one of us. That segued into a song about wanting to “f*ck the nation.”
