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.
