We tried to see Freud vs His Ego at the Fringe today, but when we got to Granville Island there was a huge lineup for tickets. We knew it was going to be close but thought our chances were good considering there were dozens of people behind us in line. Unfortunately, I was the first person in line who didn’t get a ticket. Luckily, we had a great backup plan and managed to get tickets to Die Roten Punkte – Kunst Rock.
Die Roten Punkte – Kunst Rock – We saw the faux-German, White Stripe imitation rockers when they were in Vancouver for their first Fringe tour a few years ago. Kunst Rock is their third Fringe show, and I think they’ve now perfected their craft. The songs were catchy, the jokes were funny, and their lampooning of art rock bands was perfect. I almost died laughing when they stopped the show to mock a poor women who tried sneaking out with 15 minutes left. After a number of sellouts, they’re performing an extra charity show on Sunday at 3:50.****
