OK, it's three days later, which means that, if you were at
the Living Colour/Soul Asylum concert at the Nectarine
Ballroom Monday night, your ears may have stopped ringing
by now. The two bands invaded the neon palace, pre-empting
the regularly-scheduled techno-drone of New Music night, and
gave the crowd not only a healthier dose of guitar rock than
that establishment's seen for many a Monday, but a sizable
buildup of ear wax as well.
Living Colour (below) opened the night with a seismic set
that showcased the New York-based band's debut album,
Vivid, and featured bandleader Vernon Reid's too-fast-for-
-human-comprehension guitar playing, as well as enough
tempo changes to induce whiplash. Though a large number of
the flannel-clad Soul Asylum audience seemed unfamiliar
with the band's work, they were soon won over - so much,
in fact, that they called the band back for an encore: a rare
enough gesture for a popular opening act, much less one
with almost no airplay. When lead singer Corey Glover
(right) closed the set asking the crowd, "What's your favorite
color?" the answer was obvious. And spelled with a "u."
Which left Soul Asylum (bottom right) with some awfully
big distortion boxes to fill - which they did, setting a
fevered pace from their opening anthem "Sometime to
Return." The set, including covers of "Sexual Healing" and
"One Tin Soldier," showed the band, which developed a
slicker sound on their latest effort, Hang Time, still capable
of setting hundreds of heads a-bangin'. Of course, it's going
"to be pretty hard to disappoint a crowd when you throw
money at them, which guitarist Dan Murphy did, declaring.
"15 dollars (the door kprice) isn't our fucking fault."
Needless to say, the crowd was forgiving.
