LuckyDragonsluckyDragonsLucky. There honestly should be a section here devoted entirely to the going ons of all things Lucky Dragons, because in all sincerity the places he’s gone and ventured into over the past few years musically are some of the most refreshingly inspiring and original that I’ve ever witnessed or heard. After finally catching a show of his a few weeks ago in San Francisco, I realized that he’s something of a contemperarity in my eyes because the nature of his music is entirely welcoming and comforting, despite using technological elements that one might normally associate with feelings of alienation in this increasingly lost world of technological intangibility. One element of the show that I was particularly entranced by was how through employing the use of instruments fed through effects boards handed to audience members in order to encourage audience participation, Luke Fishbeck of Lucky Dragons was able to craft an evolving environment that wasn’t so much forced onto the audience but let loose as an energy that swept over all in attendance. It was only after the concert that I was able to gradually begin to process the sheer blissful nature of universally experiencing and spontaneously helping create a sound with others through the use of technology. To have all of those digital elements abstractly come together as an organic sound and entirely coalesce as a nurturing force is really something everyone should experience. I don’t know what else to say that wouldn’t cheapen the experience for those thinking they might be interested in going out to a show of his, all I will say is that it’s a life experience.
