Tuesday evening I went to see the Adrian Belew Power Trio and the Stick Men on the Two of a Perfect Trio Tour at the Carrboro Arts Center. Had special tickets so I went early to sit in the room while they did soundcheck, then and we had a meet and greet with the musicians afterward.

They played 4 movements of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, "Dinosaur", "Three of a Perfect Pair", "Elephant Talk", and "Red". Red was simply awesome.

personnel: tony levin, markus reuter, pat mastelotto, adrian belew, julie slick, tobias ralph.

I like how the audience guy's face smears off into a color strip: that was unintentional on my part but I'll take it. LEVIN'S PLAYING MELTS FAN'S FACE OFF.

Tony Levin's the reason I took up playing Chapman Stick in 1997. Accordingly I took the opportunity Tuesday to ask him to sign mine:

I wanted somewhere that wouldn't get a lot of surface contact and abrasion. I should figure what what of sealant to put over a Sharpie on hardwood. I sent stick.com an email asking what they did to finish Sticks in 1995 and haven't received an answer yet.
