feckless beast

Th 1 Apr 1999 Velvet Lounge w/ SensorBand and ViVuVaVera
  SensorBand were pretty amazing -- never seen anything like them. Their infrared rig wouldn't fit on the Velvet's stage, so one of the guys was reduced to squatting by an electronic box, smoking endless cigarettes and turning knobs. One of the other gents had things the size of computer mice in his hands; I gather they sensed changes in speed and direction in a gyroscopic kind of way. My favorite guy had bands up his arms that I presume sensed changes in his personal electric field in a lie-detector like way; while he was performing he often seemed to be miming some sort of complex mechanical engineering activity.
  setlist: uh, i forget. i think "rooftop" was the only new song?
