TLG has really stepped up its light show, contributing to a much better overall concert experience. Coincidentally, I like purple.
One the count of three, Trevor, open your eyes and pretend you’re a chicken

It’s a shame I couldn’t make it to New Year’s, but the Mexicali show was a pleasant holiday treat. So as an added bonus, we now present to you these seven cool video clips from the band’s New Year’s Eve show at the Theater of Living Arts in Philly (courtesy of the fine folks over on the TLG Forum):
You can also stream the NYE show right here on the Live Music Archive…

Was that your 1st time at Mexicali’s? Sweet place, huh? Don’t go telling too many people about it, it’s our little secret over here in the Dirty Jerz.
Yup, Chef, first time there…big fan, and if I had a car I’d be there all the time. They get good bands, the room is sweet, and you can get kosher food all over the place right outside. We parked right outside the Glatt Kosher Chinese Food place.
By the way, did you see that your namesake died over the holiday break?
No Shit. I guess he tested out one too many of his recipes, one too many times. I’ll have to fire one up to his memory when I get home. RIP Chef 🙁
