I take my little Flip Cam everywhere these days, and by golly, the videos are starting to pile up! Luckily for you, I'm in a sharing mood. Shot this crappy footage at a recent TV on the Radio concert at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco...mostly crappy because I forgot to stop dancing in my seat while recording, though the A/V leaves a lot to be desired (can't wait to get my hands on an HD Flip!).
Tv on the Radio put on an interesting live show. In person their harmonies were spot-on and they had a lot of energy, though in the videos you can see a lot of people sort of standing there and watching, even right up front. That's unusual. I'm not sure if the audience was mesmerized, or confused, or just stoned. Probably all of the above.
The Warfield Theater is old, beautiful, and has a great balcony, but you can't bring your drinks to your seat, which is ridiculous and reduces otherwise mature adults to lobby dwelling, drink pounding savages. I may or may not be talking about myself. Ok fine, I am. EVERYONE KNOWS YOU CANNOT ENJOY LIVE MUSIC WITHOUT DRINKING IN YOUR SEAT. Just kidding, sort of.
If you're interested, here are links to my three favorite TVotR albums in Amazon's mp3 store:
