Missing... Missing... Missing...

Last night, as part of a birthday present, we saw Thomas Dolby play at Station 4 in St. Paul's Lowertown. It's a small, divey venue, which makes for the sort of concert experience I enjoy most, and it's been a long time since I enjoyed a concert as much as this one. As noted earlier, it's been quite a while since the multi-talented electronica pioneer has played, so it was quite a treat.

My last visit to the Lowertown Sawatdee was for my brother's wedding reception several years ago. Garrison Keillor stopped in that night for takeout after a performance of PHC. Before the concert we returned to find it has become Supatra's; still Thai and still good, but be forewarned that when they say "4 stars" they mean ****.

(Interesting coincidence: Yesterday, Mr. Dolby wrote that he is collaborating with Ryuichi Sakamoto whom I blogged about a couple days ago. Also, last month Peter Kirn posted about Dolby's equipment.)
