They Got Me Hypnotized
Concerts that seem like a dream
By August March
The best live rock and roll is hypnotizing. Those performances contain the engines of transcendence in their spooky ability to reach inside the minds of audience members to withdraw something essentially intense and ultimately, though ephemerally, satisfying. This week’s concerts should be like that: They will seem dreamlike, manifested on stage. More importantly they’ll give listeners the opportunity to reach places they might not otherwise encounter in the humdrum of everyday life. As Mr. Welch concludes, all that other stuff just doesn’t matter when you’re hypnotized.
