The Art and the Preacher: JRL Farewell Gig part whatever it is by now
Someone worked through the night the day before the concert to create an atmosphere, an aesthetic surround experience for people who came to the show.
There were large, black, wooden sculpture-people standing around in the audience and on stage.
There were shapes cut out and placed on chairs and on the stage.
There were paintings and candles. It felt a bitlike a shrine. Which was great, especially when the reverend Andrew Kreider came up and said a few words about the dearly departed JRL.
Funny and sad beautiful and good. At least for me.
