….Or, more accurately, brand new Alejandro and the Fame demos of Lady Gaga songs, because that’s what we do — glam rock Lady Gaga covers with more Mohawks, more glitter, and more balls. Here’s a preliminary mix of “Paparazzi” that was done on my laptop over the weekend. It’s still not the final version, and we’ve got a few more tunes to come for your listening pleasure, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!
For those who missed (or those who simply want to relive it), here’s the complete (minus the talky parts) Alejandro & the Fame performance from last Friday, May 20, at the Boston University Theatre for the Huntington Theatre Company’s 35 Below party. It was pretty epic.
(and yes, some of the video is blocked by people, but you were more interested in listening than seeing anyway, weren’t you? Thought so)

We also did an encore of a Foo Fighters song that we never actually rehearsed. The songs we played were all the songs we knew, but the crowd really wanted an encore, and most of us knew the song, so we tried went with it. One girl even grabbed our lead singer from the crowd and said “I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU PLAY JUST PLAY ANYTHING.” So we did.

Friday night was the first performance of my all-male Lady Gaga cover band, Alejandro & the Fame. In light of the then-impending rapture, we changed our name to Alejandro & the Harbingers of the Apocalypse. We have since returned to the Fame.
Audio/video to come, but for now, here’s some pictures to tide you over:
Yes, I’m wearing leopard print leggings and jean shorts. No, I do not own the leopard print leggings. Yes, I did make my own jean shorts.
