The Tubes, the Bay Area based rock band that became one of the most entertaining and theatrical live concert performers in the business, are staging a Halloween Costume Party at the intimate Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael on Saturday October 29th following the completion of their European tour.
Currently featuring four original members, Fee Waybill on lead vocals, Roger Steen on guitar, Rick Anderson on bass and Prairie Prince on drums, along with David Medd on keyboards, the satirical bad boys of Rock’ N ’Roll have dealt with everything from television and the media to politics,
censorship and sexuality since first bursting onto the scene with anthems such as “White Punks on Dope” and “What Do You Want From Life” from their self-titled debut album in 1975. The band was also a pioneer during the early days of the MTV era providing videos such as “Talk To Ya Later”, “Sushi Girl” and “She’s A Beauty” that were in heavy rotation.
Both tickets and additional information are available at murphyproductions.com if you want to experience the spectacle of this innovative rock theatre in person. Additionally, for those audiophiles out there, “The Musikladen Concert 1981”, a newly released vintage concert performance of the band in their prime just hit the shelves a couple weeks ago on both CD and DVD.
