|The B-52s, OMD and Berlin|
I got kidnapped to Connecticut this weekend for a pair of '80s concerts at Foxwoods Casino. The first featured Berlin and OMD opening for the B-52s.
They got a great reception from the crowd. Terry Nunn still has a very strong voice. The sound mix was a little muddy for them -- the synth should have been way louder -- but other than that they had an excellent set.
|2||Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark|
The Best of O.M.D.
Andy McCluskey dances like a chicken, or like a man with horrible neurological damage. But these guys were really on, and their set was first-rate.
I've seen these guys a bunch over the years, because they're my wife's favorite band. But this was one of their best shows. Both ladies were in good voice (which isn't always the case, especially for Cindy Wilson), and Fred Schneider was ... well, Fred. They capped off a very strong '80s show in style.
|I wish I'd had more energy to enjoy this show. It was a total sell out, the crowd was really into it, and the bands all had excellent sets.|
|It's 8:38PM New York time on 9/22. Wish I knew why it dated this list the 23rd. I have another one for the next day's concert.|
|For anyone interested, the setlists for all three bands can be found on setlist.fm.|
|Cindy has sounded ghastly live as far back as the 80s so nice to hear she was on point that night|
|I've seen them a bunch of times, and it seems like at least two out of every three times, she's awful. So yeah, it was nice to see them on.|
|For anyone who might be interested, the full write-up for this show is now posted on my blog at longislandmusicguy.blogspot.com.|
