Super Diamond

Let's say you're out on a hot August night, and you bump into a young lady who's a ringer for Mila Kunis. Mila's doppelgänger takes a shine to you, and you share common interests, like horseback riding, recumbent bicycling, homemade salsa, and geology. She's a veterinarian, bright and witty. Given that she looks like Mila Kunis, she's also smoking hot. You end up talking and drinking for hours, then head back to her place, where you have incredible sex. Not one-night stand sex, but Wesley Snipes sex—furniture-cracking coitus you want to have again and again, and will, because you set a date to meet for dinner before you leave in the morning. Upon returning home, you get an invitation to meet some friends for brunch. When you regale them with details of your night over corned beef hash, do any of them say, “Well, she may have looked like Mila Kunis, but she wasn't Mila Kunis, so kick her to the curb”? No, they don't. Rather, they're in awe of you for scoring a girl who looked just like Mila Kunis. Similarly, Super Diamond isn't Neil Diamond, but they sound a lot like him. And that's still mighty fine. (With local openers The Dudley Manlove Quartet.) MIKE SEELY
