Luther Burbank May 20
Review by GALVANDENISE (Switch to
I'm in agreement with Kim who's already posted. If all I had heard and seen of the show was "Pretending to Care", the flight from Portland and additional hour + drive would have been worth it. As it was, there was plenty more to be happy about. Tiny Demons, The Wheel, I Don't Want to Tie You Down... IMHO, one of the stronger solo performances I've seen from Todd in awhile. I think part of the problem is that when you've seen as many of his shows as many of us have, you're bound to have benchmarks. I can't think of any other artist I've chosen to see one fifth the number of times I've seen Todd. And as some others have stated, I'll keep going as long as he keeps playing. I've lost count of how many friends I took to their first Todd show, but by the mid-seventies I had stopped trying to tell them what they should expect. Todd is human (nearly), and I've taken a number of those friends to shows where the sound/vocals/playing/attitude/crowd...could have been better. I don't remember any of them walking out or being less than happy that they had gone. I'm so glad I didn't let the tone of many of the earlier reviews convince me to stay home. This was a great show. Getting a chance to be reminded of what a unique talent Joe Jackson is was just icing on a very enjoyable cake for me.
