SF Station Blows It Up

1. Thomas Dolby live on stage @ The Independent, San Francisco, April 15, 2006

Thomas Dolby is one of synth-pop's early-'80s new wave stars and the man behind the hit "She Blinded Me with Science". Now in 2006, Dolby has a little less hair, but he's definitely as inventive as ever. Obviously older, Dolby's only gotten better with time. On April 15th he hit the stage to a sold out crowd who cheered his name and he did not disappoint them. He performed on a keyboard and a crazy looking computer rig, supported by some amazing video. Thomas's ability to create & control sounds is amazing and if you ever been to one of his show's you know.

3. Terry Reid live on stage @ Mezzanine, San Francisco, April 21, 2006

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Terry Reid is a legend in his own right. He emerged from England along side the Beatles and The Rolling Stones with his own brand of melodic rock in the late 60's and has been making music ever since. Standing infront of the stage waiting for him to come on I could feel the excitement in the air. As Terry walked on stage I could see this was going to be interesting or just plain funny, with his hair standing on end and him being obviously a little drunk. From the first strum of the guitar I could hear it was going to be a long night because the thing was out of tune and he had no intention of fixing that, the man sang his on songs and some covers of the past and kinda floated about.
