After going to the Johnny Vatos tribute to Halloween show last night I now more then ever long for an Oingo Boingo reunion. I got into the band 1 year after they called it quits and never got to see them live. This Halloween it will be 10 years since the band was last together. Vatos did a great job of getting John Avila, Slugo, and Steve Bartek together on stage again last night to do some rare Boingo songs as well as some other stuff. I was happy to see members of the band playing together again, but I think everyone in there was hoping that Danny Elfman would show up. He didn't so we tried to have a good time anyway.
In the spirit of the great Boingo Halloween shows of the past I came in costume. I was the son of the devil and the princess of the 6th dimension, or as I said last night "the result of the devil sticking his fork in that there tomato" (if you have no idea what I a talking about go see the Forbidden Zone, unless you are easily offended). I don't think a Boingo reunion will ever happen because Danny Elfman wanted a clean break of the band while they were still on top. But for us fans we will always hope against hope that someday there will be one more show. Last night is most likely the closest we will ever get, and it was a fun night, but it was no Oingo Boingo show.
What bands would you like to see get back together?
