The Musical Box

Wednesday night, I went with Sunmonkey and the Fraz Bear to see The Musical Box play at the Rams Head in Baltimore.
They are a tribute band that recreates impeccable the shows by Genesis when Peter Gabriel was the lead singer. We saw them perform the Foxtrot Tour set, which, as a fan of early Genesis, was pretty damn awesome.
The audience: 30 to 50 year old men in Rush and Styz t-shirts talking about King Crimson and Ratdog, only occasional wives or girlfriends.
It was pretty fun to hear everyone sing along - particular lines: "the soil, the soil.. ." and "we rock you, rock you little snake".

Just saw them in Toronto do the Selling England show. Great show. I've seen Foxtrot twice before. I would have rather seen the Foxtrot show. It's a little more out there, if you know what I mean.
As for the audience, in Toronto it's pretty much the same. But it's slowly changing. Six or seven years ago, when I saw TMB for the first time, it was all 40-50ish guys reliving their youth. Every year I see them play and the audience is slowly getting younger or more feminine. More people are bringing wives, girlfriends & children.
