The Symptoms Debut at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City – A review by Robert Greeley

The Symptoms played their first ever live performance last night (11/20/14) at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City. The group comprised of Tony Diodore (violin), Laurie Anderson (violin, keyboards, voice) and John Colpitts aka Kid Millions (drums) played an hour long improvised set.
The spirit of Art D’Lugoff was alive and well in this historic room. If mind bending sonic dual electric violins and drums are your bag then this was a real treat. Each one of these brilliant musicians brought to the table their own signature style and passion.

Tony Diodore was part of Lou Reed’s last touring band, sadly we were not blessed to catch this inception of Lou’s band on this side of the pond. The recordings from that tour are extraordinary. Tony’s playing was masterful in that band and was no exception last night. John Colpitts drumming technique and improvisational skills were off the hook. He is best known for his work in the tripped out band Oneida. He certainly seemed at home with his band mates last evening, which was exemplified through his drumming.

Laurie Anderson was on very familiar turf and completed this trio in every way. Her skill as an artist never falls short.The mixture of violin, keyboard and spoken word melded perfectly with John and Tony. She was joined a couple of times by her alter ego Fenway Bergamot. Fenway introduced the band and later segued into Laurie’s Another Day In America for a couple of verses.

If you like your music out of the box or lets be serious, way out of the box this will elevate your mind to dizzy heights. If say Taylor Swift is your thing, then I would suggest run for the hills, as this hour of music would crush you!
