For serious? No, really. Serious?

Yes, for serious. Minnie Driver will be playing tonight at The Double Door. No, it is not some acting thing. No it is not improv. Singing. She will be singing.

You would think actors would learn that the actor – slash – musician thing is the bad way to go (see here, here, here, etc…) And if I remember correctly, didn’t Ms. Driver play an absolutely horrible cabaret singer in a James Bond movie? And didn’t she sing an ear piercing cover of Stand By Your Man?

So, if you have nothing better to do, venture out and see and “slashie” crash and burn.

    I caught some of Minnie Driver’s show at South by Southwest last March. Here’s the review in the Austin Chronicle: http://www.austinchronicle.com/issues/dispatch/2004-03-26/music_set3.html

    She wasn’t horrible, but not great. Not a total train wreck, but I’m glad I had a wristband and didn’t pay specifically to see her.

    Fresh from her engagement at Amazon.com films!

    Yes, she did sing Stand By Your Man in a Bond film, but he was typecast as the sexy but talentless moll of the local Russian mafia don. She had to fake a bad Russian accent and having no talent all at the same time. I thought she accomplished this well. Now, if only I had money for the Double Door…
