I deserted the interweb version of the SAVAGE SEVERE to actually live it. 2 months is too long though.
My head also has been full of odd ball situations all over the map - so been a bit intro. Such is life - inside outside upside.
Recently I had a chance to catch a mind blowing premier - Omar Souleyman live in the deserts of Redhook. And it did feel like a desert - with 90 deg. heat - dusty spaces - and atmospheric stone caves where the performance took place.
I think this was Souleyman's first performance in the US. He is a Syrian vocalist, crooner, and hype man all in one. His videographer and MC was a presence as well (not pictured - had to see this). The man behind the music on keyboards provided live production.
The first time I went to SF CA, I made a visit to Berkley's Indian zone on the hunt for soundtrack tapes. There were rows and rows of Souleyman's music. There was so much I decided on nothing. Fate would allow me to experience this live later.
