Last night a group that I'm playing in opened for Har Mar Superstar, and I had no idea what a treat I was in for. Har Mar wears his paunch and Krusty the Clown hair (sorry dude, it's true!) like a goddamn sex symbol and takes an ecstatic crowd through an hour of equal parts Eminem, Al Green, Wendy O'Williams and Weird Al.
