Ruth and I saw Human Sexual Response at the Boston House of Blues last night. It was a little less than 31 years since the first time I saw them live, at a New Year’s Eve show at the Paradise with Mission of Burma. Also, it was in almost the exact same spot where I saw their first reunion show, 28 years ago on Halloween. That venue (Spit – punk was still popular) is long gone, plowed under to make way for the current set of mega-clubs.
The band looks pretty good for a random collection of people in their fifties. Better than much of the audience and much better than DEVO.
