Donald Trump will be making a campaign stop at the Oklahoma State Fair today at 5:30. Admission is free with a State Fair ticket or confederate flag.
I'm actually really excited about this. I'd never vote for him and think he's nuts, but I get a kick out of Donald Trump the political entertainer. He cracks me up. He's the president every dystopian future comic book has warned us about. It's like watching a performance artist, professional wrestler and angry six-year-old all rolled into one. He's putting on one hell of a show. I can't wait to see him ride around in a rascal, call a carnie a loser, and yell at everyone "High And Dry! High and Dry! HAHAHAHAHAH!" He will definitely make the state fair great again.
Other people are not so excited. For example, the local band "Uncanny Violet Unicorn" is pissed that Trump's appearance bumped them from the State Fair stage.
"Matthew and I spent about a six-month period specifically working on our set list, just for this show," Elektra Autrey said about her band-mate.
And, now, they've gone from the big stage to a smaller set at the beer and wine garden.
"It can be a little frustrating when an outside force comes and pushes you off stage to talk about other things," Autrey said.
"He's probably used to having his way, because he is a multi-millionaire, a famous person," Autrey said. "Sometimes, you can forget that the little people just trying to make ends meet, we work really hard too."
I don't know about you, but I feel sorry for the Uncanny Violet Unicorn. Not only did they get Trumped, but they may have the weirdest band name of all time! Seriously, Uncanny Violet Unicorn? That's definitely uncanny. They should have gone with Lisa Frank Vomit.
I did a quick Google search for some Uncanny Violet Unicorn videos on YouTube. The first thing I found was this video titled Violent Diarrhea Unicorn:
That wasn't the right video, so I did more googling and found the Uncanny Violet Unicorn website. They're an Americana goth rock duo that performs "Moody artrock by which to mourn lost loves and/or shake one's booty." Basically, it's the type of fair music that will either make you cry into a corn dog or greatly enhance your meth trip.
The band features Elektra Autry on guitar and vocals and apparently Boo Radley on violin. They actually performed at the State Fair's Beer and Wine Garden last night. Here's the performance:
Hey, that wasn't too bad. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised. In hindsight, maybe the fair should have tapped them to be the opening act for Donald's performance.
Anyway, you can check out more of Uncanny Violet Unicorn here. I wonder what stage they'll be performing on at next year's Arts Festival? Hopefully they don't get trumped again.
