01.08.07Music Monday A pretty fun doc about the lost days of Vegas lounges and the hard-working multi-talent acts that made them thrive. ALthough there's a notorious lack of footage of these guys in their heyday, the director tracks down a lot of them and shows enough modern-day performance stuff to give a glimpse of what it must've been like. All these guys are great, man... they're like the coolest version of your funny/annoying borderline alcoholic uncle imaginable. Especially this one dude Babe Pier. He does these impressions where he gets the voice pretty good but also does impressive physical imitation as well to give a really funny overall picture, even if his impressions consist of saying who he is, saying one line, then introducing the next impression. Plus he's got this hair... oh man... it's like... I don't even know what it's like, but it's funny. Him doing Tony Bennett singing Take Me Out to the Ball Game is hilarious. The other guys too, they're all knuckleheads who used to work all night every day to make those old days of Vegas the romantic vision of a memory it is to most of us today.

Good doc!
