B-52’s Are Cheery, Energetic & Professional—That’ll Get The Job Done

I saw the B 52’s last week here in Houston.

The band was cheery, professional, creative and energetic. They struck the right line between being friendly, and yet a bit removed from the audience.

They appreciate that you bought a ticket and that you would like to see them play, but they are not going to invite you up on stage or out for a drink after the show.

That is just how it should be.

I try to avoid knowing much about the baseball players I follow or about people in bands I like.

I just imagine them all as nice enough people—or least not bad people—and let it go at that.

The video with this post is Song for a Future Generation.

It is a happy song.

Here is the B-52’s website.

Here is an introductory history of music with links to additional information if you are so inclined.

  1. Kinda wish I’d been there. Their reunion of the four core members album was pretty good.

    Sometimes the oldsters can rock out. I saw Erasure at the True Colors tour up at the Woodlands a few years ago. I was impressed

  2. Yep.. They keep at it for a long time in many cases. I suppose it is hard to go and get a desk job after you’ve been playing in a band for so long.
