I got free tickets to DEVO and Penn and Teller this month. DEVO has an amazing stage show as great as ever with large video graphics on screen behind them on stage. They were innovators
of video music back at the start of videos on cable TV. A good show to catch if you are still in the area to see them.
Also, I saw the Penn and Teller show last night! Very controversial. I mostly like them because of their 9-11 episode. However, I feel they did not go far enough to depict the searing and boiling hatred many Americans, like myself, feel towards the American government and military due to 9-11 and it's aftermath. People may not like what they have to say, but there is such a thing as freedom of speech they are defending. If you just watched a documentary on public TV on government issues, people would all fall to sleep. Mix in a bit of comedy, magic, and charisma and the message actually gets to people. I am glad I got to see it firsthand.
