Thomas Dolby - 'The Toadlickers'

I was so happy to hear that the talented Thomas Dolby was touring again and would be playing the Fox Theater in Riverside on July 2. We immediately scored good tickets at a reasonable price.

Leslie and I saw Dolby in San Diego when he came back from his long hiatus about fifteen years ago and it was one of the best shows we have ever attended.

He sat at a computer console in the middle of the room and created a thick sonic web that was beautiful, musical and dense.

The Fox Theater in Riverside is probably the nicest restored Spanish revival music hall I have ever seen in California, even nicer than the Arlington in Santa Barbara. If you can get a ticket I encourage you to do so. The one time Lene Lovich keyboard player Dolby will be joined in this upcoming show by the Thompson Twins Tom Bailey.
