[TypicalGirls] Gang of 4

Wow.  My brother and sister and I were talking over the holidays about best live bands we've seen thus far in our lifetimes.  Naturally, hard to narrow down..especially if you've seen endless great shows...but Gang of Four (was it Irving Plaza?) in 1980, I guess (the only time I've seen them)--was UNBELIEVABLE!!
I'd give blood to see them again.  Please please keep us all posted for tix info for NYC! 
P.S. Anybody see Television at Roseland Ballroom not too long ago?  I know I'm getting "off-list" or whatever..but I guess recent posts (Pascale) have echoed the idea that enthusiasm is hard to put limits on...and maybe there is a certain spirit--(yeah maybe all the more fantastic if there's a woman involved somewhere)--that subverts the male/female specificities.

  ha, dina!  that seems like the next logical evolutionary step.   i think the musical era in which we here are most interested had a strong androgynous aspect anyway.  pascale said it most eloquently in his post of january 24th!

  in any case, i, for one, am VERY excited about the prospect of experiencing the orgasm that is Gof4 live once again.  there was a time when they were the band that i had seen play more than any other band —even "ran away from home" for a night to see their first ENTERTAINMENT!-era show in nyc!  (and still thankful that i did!!!)  admittedly, their last shows (and recordings) paled in comparison so i truly hope they "get it right" with this regrouping...

  anyone know what the tour dates are?  where they'll play in nyc?  or anything else TYPICAL GIRLS AND BOYS need to know?  ; )

    Hmm...the list seems to have evolved. Should we re-name it to typical girls
    and boys: the post-punk era? :-)
