My First Show: The Octopus Project's Toto Miranda Saw Weird Al -- And Sill Has The Shirt.
|The Octopus Project|
To help preview the band's performance, we recently caught up with drummer Toto Miranda from the band and asked him about his first show experience. Seems like he got to see "Weird Al" Yankovic on the tour where songs like "Smells Like Nirvana," "Taco Grande" and "The White Stuff" got plenty of attention.
This was the early '90s, and not everybody under 21 could see Nirvana, Pearl Jam or Soundgarden for their first show experience. Miranda details his experience after the jump.
What was the first show you saw?
The chronology is a little hazy, but it was either Weird Al or Aerosmith with Megadeth. In any case, Weird Al was easily the best performance of the three. Still got the T-shirt! It was a Nevermind album-art parody.
Were you with your parents?
Nope. I was dropped off and picked up. Freedom!
What was the first show you spent your own money on?
These were them! That Mailboxes Etc. job really paid off.
