Re: Concerts you have coming up

The War on Drugs did a very good job tonight at the Fox Theater in Oakland. The wall of sound worked for the most part and the vocals were thankfully tuneful, if not always discernible. The Fox Theater seemed to deal well with the sound which was bit over-amplified for me. At times the guitarist see...

Re: Concerts you have coming up

The War on Drugs at the Fox Theatre in Oakland, CA on 9/11.

It will be a change for me to see a band that started playing in the last decade or two.

If anyone else has seen the band perform recently, please provide your take on the highlights of the show and anything I should focus on.

I'm a fan of Utopia's first album "Todd Rundgren's Utopia" which had a few very long songs including "The Ikon" which I recommend to AM fans for a listen. No Utopia album made it to an AM list and Utopia is not among the artists listed in AM.
