Saw Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson @ Cal Poly

As a sometime-flute-playing rock person, it was a treat  for me to see Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull play at the Cal Poly Arts Center with his band this Saturday.  Many classics (‘Jack in the Green’ being a personal favorite “/ ) along with many newer songs and rearranged versions of mid-period songs I was less familiar with.     M. Anderson, btw, performs his ass off on every song – great last-beat-of-the-song poses, one hand flourishes, eye-pops, dramatic silly-walks, you name it.  Marching all over the stage, and just –>killing<– it on flute.  Kind of motivates me to go add some flute to the new TLFR record...  Thanks, Mr. Anderson!
