John Zorn (Masada) last night, in a small theatre. wonderful doesn't even begin to describe it. that man is a genius and his band is incredible too. he's like some mad doctor/orchestra conductor except he moves around and it's funny how the other guys in the band have to keep an eye on him, even if it's out if the corner of their eye, because he'll give weird little cues and directions at any moment. you can tell he hears every detail, and there's improv, but it's definitely 'directed'. and he's a funny guy and interacts with the crowd but doesn't like to use a mic to do it, just screams stuff from the stage.
