This is Peter Gabriel

Concert catchup

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

As long-time TCW watchers know, we do love the concert scene. In the last 3 months we’ve had the good fortune to be up close for 3 very different shows:

Red Hot Chili Peppers in Oakland, CA. This was originally slated for April but was postponed to August after Anthony Kiedis broke his foot. Fantastic show, hey oh!

The Tedeschi-Trucks Band in Saratoga, CA. They brought a big band and a big noise. Some of Susan’s material, some of Derek’s and some from the togetherness band. DTB is one of my favorites this year, and this show did not disappoint.

Peter Gabriel Back to Front Tour, San Jose, CA. Still one of the most creative artists in the world, even if he does look like a portly elder statesman these days. Fabulous show, as seen from 3rd row center. Bonus tech-relevant item: each musician had a Kinect mounted at their position, used to capture & project new-aesthetic-vibe imagery on the screen behind.
