Flock of Seagulls: B
I dug the hair, being an advocate of messy hairstyles, but the hair is gone. The guitarist and bass player still give style a go, but now the lead singer just shows up in jeans, a pony tail, and a baseball cap? This isn't Flock Of Systems Administrators, man.
Still, some interesting tunes I wasn't familiar with, on the edge of punk. A good show.
David Byrne: A+
One of the best concerts I've ever seen. David Byrne is the real thing. Musical styles all over the chart, executed brilliantly. Check out the tune "Lazy" on the new CD. The applause was so monumental that I almost lost my hearing! I also encountered The Most Annoying Person Ever at the concert. One or two "wooooooooo"s is acceptable, but W (it's a curse word now), you don't; have to "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" continuously, even through quiet strings passages? What a dork. Next time get a Drano-rita (with extra salt--I'll buy) and skip the thirteen hundred cheap beers. Or maybe there needs to be an IQ test before David Byrne shows?
Siouxie and the Banshees: A
Wow--still basically the same stuff, but an amazing stage production--big drums, great costumes, beautiful twins on backup. Great show.
