Talking Light : Bimbo'sStreaming Video - 2013
In April of 2011, The Residents brought their acclaimed Talking Light tour to Bimbo's 365 Club in San Francisco, California. The inspiration behind the Talking Light tour is The Residents' fascination with spooky stories. The Residents realized that what they saw as "ghost stories" had become a show about aging and death. They wanted to have fun with the concept and, in true Residents' fashion, their idea of fun is quite a bit darker and scarier than the mainstream definition. All of these ghost stories share a common theme, centered around television culture and commercials, a theme which ultimately begs the question: "in a world where nearly everything has been categorized, how do we fulfill our need for the fuzzy, the vague, or the supernatural?" Is this what television commercials are for? The Residents have some pretty creative answers for you. Discover their chilling point-of-view and haunting conclusions!
