The last warehouse show is… Negativland!

I’m sorry to see Warehouse go away – as it exists now, anyway – but I’m pretty excited by this Sunday’s final show: Negativland. An acquired taste, to be sure, and I have not a clue what a live show from them will be like. If you’re a geek copyfighter, however, you should probably know who they are even if you don’t enjoy their music. They’ve been the focal point for a number of interesting events, including the one around their U2: Special Edit Radio Mix, available here. Worth a listen to hear Casey Kasem lose his shit, if nothing else.

Their website indicates that this tour “is an effort to bring our 25-years-on-the-air Over The Edge radio show to the live stage for the first time. No puppets, no film projectors, no bells and whistles… just “theater of the mind”” I don’t have the slightest damned idea what that means but I’m looking forward to finding out.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
