Tycho - Troubadour - 1/13/13
As the ladies in the crowd drank him in, he stood behind his elaborate station of synthesizers and keys and got to work. It was pretty good; not quite as good as the stuff with his group, but not bad.
His bandmates returned after it was over, and played a couple more songs. A dude wutg white hair handed Hansen (what must have been) a demo of his work, and Hansen thanked him for it, if you can believe that.
Personal Bias: After seeing Tycho at FYF last September, I was sold, and suspected I would like this show even before it happened.
The Crowd: It was 44 degrees last night in Hollywood, and inside the venue tons of folks wore beanies, scarves and coats. We all squished, and it was toasty.
Random Notebook Dump: "Why is it so cold down here?" Hansen said at one point. "We were expecting it to be nice and warm, but I honestly think it's colder here than in San Francisco!"
