Happy 90th birthday to actor Abe Vigoda. Oddly enough, I saw the rock band Abe Vigoda last week. I did not stick around after the show to ask the band if they’ve met the actor who their band is named after. I enjoyed the Abe Vigoda show, so I am sure I’ll have the opportunity in the future. Happy birthday Abe and thanks again for rockin’ Abe! 🙂
Also celebrating birthdays today are actor Billy Zane and actress Kristen Davis.

On February 13, 2011, California’s “tropical punk band” Abe Vigoda opened for Wild Nothing at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom. Their music was a lot more electronic than I thought it would be, based on on-line descriptions of the bands’ sound. Lead singer Michael Vidal has a very intense stage presence and his performance reminded me of a bobble-head doll as he didn’t stop moving for the duration of the set. I didn’t stick around to meet the band after the show, but I would have loved to have had the chance to tell them that I’ve met the actual Abe Vigoda, the actor whom the band are named after. Next time…
