Cornelius: Best live show ever

So the wiz kid from Japan, Cornelius, is going to come back to America, only date scheduled so far is Cochella, but hopefully we'll see him here in NYC. I have to tell you he put on the best show I have ever seen. Because his music is so computer driven his light show was absolutely stunning. In the tiny little Bowery Ballroom he made a Radiohead show look second class show put on my second graders. Every ray of light that dripped through the Bowery was perfectly timed, and there was so much light whipping through the club that your eyes could do nothing but water (even if you closed them). Musically the band tightly weaves a wall of sound that comes crashing down on you... wave... after wave ... after wave. All that and you can dance to it.

So if this wunderkind comes to your town, do yourself a favor and go see him.

Cornelius plays Webster Hall on Thursday May 10th.

Is this the same Cornelius Ben Folds talks about?

Yes it is... but in Hiro's Song I do believe he refers to him as Jesus.
