"If you hired the B52s to perform for your son’s Bar Mitzvah, but you paid extra for them to apprentice under ABBA for a year in preparation for the event because your son, who excels in school and is light years ahead of the rest of his class, has a deep love for the zaniness of the B52s but ultimately has to admit that late-70s europop is really his jam, and then on the day of your son’s most special event the band gets kidnapped and locked in a janitor’s closet by a different band that steals their outfits and instruments and poses as them, but then nobody ever knows because they’re even more awesome, Madame Headdress would be that band."
