Just home from seeing Thievery Corporation and Massive Attack tonight at the Santa Barbara Bowl! What a great night–sparkling clear skies and stars, warm air! And what incredible music! Very powerful and intense…

Unfortunately the sound could have been better–but not our seats! We hung out by the ticket office waiting to see if they would drop any seats better than GA or up top.

The trip-hop music was very powerful, a very different vibe from Thievery, both were equally amazing with djs and live musicians and singers.

MA blew out the house with a GIANT set sized LED light show that you had to see to believe.
