“Got kitesurfing on the mind, mixed with some search & classification tech, and a dab of political ranting”

Moby ROCKED the Warfield – 5/6/05

Posted by direwolff on May 7, 2005

Yes, it's absolutely true, the guy is every bit the musical genius that he is made out to be. He played a solid two and a half hours and touched on everything from ballads, to techno, to disco, to a 30 second speed metal session, to many of his best known tunes. He even did an unrehearsed Doors tune from a conversation he and his band were having on the bus, and it sounded awesome.

He dedicated a couple of songs to San Francisco's tolerance of people's sexual orientation. He also went on to explained how scary the rest of the country, between the coasts (CA & NY), is getting these days with the religious right's intolerance. He also dedicated one of his techno songs to San Francisco's late 80s/early 90s underground raves and dance scene which was tops in the country. He also ended the show with an inspirational Euro-techno composition which had been inspired by a 7:00am dance scene with the sun rising with thousands of people dancing to techno.

Suffice it to say, Moby was at home in San Francisco and had the crowd in the palm of his hand.
