Friday night I went with Steve and Chris to see The Orb.
Technically it was my third time seeing them, though, in actuality, I probably shouldn't count the first two. My first time was in Los Angeles in 1993 at The Shrine. At the time, sadly, I didn't grok the rave scene, so my girlfriend, Allison, and I found it annoying that people were literally lying down at the show.
The second time was in June of 1996. By that time I definitely did grok the rave scene. However, it was at the absolutely amazing Organic 96 show, in the mountains Northeast of L.A., where, among a ton of the best LA DJs, Orbital, MBM, Loop Guru, Underworld, and Chemical Brothers also appeared. The Orb didn't even go on until 6 in the morning! By that time I and my friends were totally spent. We heard the strains of The Blue Room wafting over us in the parking lot as we got in the car to go home.
I am hoping that Steve posts some higher quality photos of the show over at his blog!
