B-B-B-Beastie Boys!

sorry boys!


BDO Melbourne is history. Cooled off at night here. Really stellar weather for an outdoor concert. I got to the showgrounds early to shoot the shout outs. Wandered through the crowd of 40,000 streaming in looking for people who were going to the Beastie Boys and wanted to be part of the pageant. I finished it up pretty early and put in a clip of some of the System of a Down guys beatboxing their shout out to the boys. Then we all sat around trying to come up with an opening for the show. Sometimes it takes many false starts before we hit upon something. TPK and Minton got roped into the festivities. First we tried to get them to use their computer skills for one idea that didn’t go anywhere (but we might bring it back for a future gig, so I won’t say anything about it.) But that was jettisoned at the last minute because in addition to BDO, today was the Australian Open final in Melbourne with Australian Lleyton Hewitt. We realized that TPK was a dead ringer for Hewitt and so he was enlisted to partake our last minute madness. About an hour and 30 minutes before showtime, our crew piled into a van and drove to a nearby tennis court where we staged a fake Australian Open Final between Lleyton Hewitt and our own Mix Master Mike. We shot all the pieces we needed with remarkable play by TPK and MMM and then sped back to the venue. It was about 8pm, 45 minutes before showtime. The piece had to be edited together and put into the video system, another last minute performance by all concerned. TPK’s oscar caliber performance sold the whole bit. He also reprised his role as Hewitt to present MMM with a trophy after 3 MC’s and 1 DJ. Hopefully Minton and TPK have some pics of all this.
