Tame Impala have two shows at the Forum
Jump To It – Aretha Franklin – Produced and co-written by the legendary and yet oddly shadowy Luther Vandross, perhaps because of his closeted homosexuality. The 1982 song is a masterpiece of pure disco (not funk) and gave Aretha her first hit since 1982 – A
Keep It Gay – Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick – Uproariously funny celebration of all things camp and magical and, well, gray about the musical theater… stopped the show when I saw it on Broadway. Of course, so did everything else – B+
She gave a short but intense set, all alone with her electric guitar and multiple pedals, producing some ambient, experimental lugubrious reverb-tinted soundscapes inhabited by her breathy and vulnerable voice, and it was part eerie, part haunting.
