The Lamb Lies Down in St Paul

I've got a real fondness for old-skool Peter Gabriel era Genesis, even as it's so terminally unhip that it's gone right around and in my book is geeky-cool. And what's geeky cool about the upcoming Musical Box show at the Fitzgerald Theater is that it's clearly faithful reconstruction of a 30-year old tour that really has very little recorded footage and was probably way more ambitious than it has any right to be. You just have to compare pictures and you know that they've gone to extreme detail.

I've heard about the group off and on as I've dipped into various online Genesis or Peter Gabriel discussions over the years, and have heard lots of good things, and it looks like it's one of those rare, once-in-a-blue moon experiences that I just have to check out.

To some extent, it looks like this shares a lot in common with the various Doctor Who reconstructions of lost Doctor Who episodes that I've seen over the years -- it's a particular recreation of something that has been lost in any complete sense, as there aren't any complete video recordings of this tour, much like many of the 1960s episodes of Doctor Who no longer exist. It's a particular type of fandom that I really appreciate.


Sadly, this concert was cancelled. Ah well.
