Blue People

On Saturday, the Lovely One and I, along with some friends, were very fortunate to go see the Blue Man Group. It was the last show on their 3 year tour. And one of the Blue Men (Mans?) it was his last show ever. The show itself was very interactive with the audience. Great lighting, fantastic music. Starting off the show was the opening act, David Garibaldi. I guess the best way to describe him is "performamce artist" or "performance painter". Although this guy is more than a painter. He paints portraits of famous people to music, while dancing and leaping on stage. And his paint brushes are more than just tools of his trade. They are an integral part of his act. Here is his website

Then the Blue Man Group came on. It was very loud and very awesome, the show was built around the premise of how to attend a rock show, the different moves(fist pumping etc.)to be done during the show. They did a few of their own songs which was very entertaining. Then they had to "pay tribute to their Rock and Roll forebearers",
and they did great renditions of One of These Days by Pink Floyd, I Feel Love by Donna Summer, and the classic Baba O'Reilly.


  1. Hey Tony! Sounds like an awesome show. We saw them on HDNet one night ... nothing like being there though I'm sure. I know Barry really wanted to see them. Maybe next time they're on tour.

    Belated happy birthday too! Sorry we missed it. A lot going on lately but that's not excuse.
    Chat soon!

  2. Dude, I'm SO jealous! We have that concert recorded (How To Be A Rockstar I think).

    Yeah, sorry about the missed b'day bud! :(

  3. I've always wanted to see that show! Sounds freaking awesome!

  4. Yeah, it was really great. Plus it was kid-friendly too, which is good because we had 3 munchkins that followed us in. No worries about the b-day. It's kind of a non-issue. Thanks for the good wishes.
