See Todd Rundgren...priceless!!!!
The "Liars" show at Calgary's Whiskey was something us Calgary Todd fans have been waiting for for about 25 years. The Last time we had a chance to see him was about 1976 when we had to drive up to Edmonton to see him with Utopia to open for the Blue Oyster Cult! We were not at all disappointed. Great show! great songs! and a nice intimate atmosphere. The crowd, which consisted of mostly middle-aged local musicians and some other Todd devotees, enjoyed every moment. We spent the first few hours before the show reminiscing about the old days, old favorite songs, favorite albums and reaquainting ourselves with each other as the Calgary crowd mostly knew each other from playing in bands at some time together!
Levin and Marotta were such a bonus to see. They play the consumate professionals and it would have been cool to see them stretch out a bit but this was only the second show of this tour. Gress did a great job on guitar! I loved the twin Strat attack, double whammy's and visual conformity. Gress did look somewhat tentative to Todd's seasoned authority.
Thank you Todd! Come back soon!
