REVIEW: Los Lobos at Massey
Los Lobos took the stage last night at Massey Hall to a dull and somber Tdot crowd. Huh, it must be the seats. This always happens at this venue. Nobody ever stands up, dances or goes crazy to the music...there is an attachment to the 2x2 seat. Everyone pretty much sat there, like most concerts, tapping their hands on their lap or slighly swaying in their seats.
But the band from L.A. had had enough, they went into the crowd and pulled people to dance onstage. The crowd suddenly tranformed. People in the balcony and mezzanine were on their feet - dancing too. Heck, I certainly was.
This band is not only solid (after 20 some odd years together) - they know how to have a good time.
PS. Strange story. Andy sent me a line about a show at Glen Gould theatre that is too be great - but it is sold out. They landed up being the opener to the show last night - Blackie and The Rodeo Kings (mm, they were okay)...and get this, one of the band members is a cousin with someone that works with Mark and Jeff...Andy met Jeff at casecamp and they share a very funny story (ask them the next time you see them).
