Haven’t had much of a chance to provide an update!
Thursday night I saw Atoms For Peace, Thom Yorke’s supergroup/side band composed of Flea of the Red Hot Chillies and other talented individuals. I’ve been following news on the band since they first formed in late 2009ish.
Anyway. The night was pristine. I was in the second row of people there at the Santa Barbara Bowl. And the concert was just spectacular, truly. It’s one thing to love Amok on an iPod or even on vinyl, but live and in person is utterly and completely breathtaking. I’ve said it elsewhere, and I’ll say it again: seeing Thom and the band live was a religious experience. Profound and unbelievable.
I took many many pictures, most of which are distorted from the concert’s stellar light show, but I did manage to snap a few worthwhile. Now I can cross yet another hero off the list of people to see in person. Thom Yorke might be the most rewarding “hero sighting” yet.
