6/23/13 - DOUBLE FANTASY AT MELTDOWN
Yoko Ono curated this year's Meltdown festival, and she proved that being 80 doesn't mean a damn thing. You are as young as you feel. She looks great, and she can still shriek and wail better than all the kids that rode in on her avant garde coat tails. Sean has got to be thrilled seeing his Mom so active and vibrant on stage. Super cool.
The lineup for the festival was amazing, but the thing I was really curious about was the big finale. Sunday night had the first ever live performance of Double Fantasy, the last album that John and Yoko put out before that dark night in December 33 years ago. Reviews are just coming out, but it sounds like it was a great time. Also, good ol' youtube is full of video from the show. I've assembled a few clips, most of which I haven't had a chance to watch yet, for us to discover what went down.
All we are saying is give Yoko a chance.
