I’m kind of surprised about what a big hubbub The Symphony of Fire–or whatever it is called these days–commands. I’ve lived in Vancouver for years and years, and I’ve seen a few. There’s some loud flashes of light, which eventually smokescreen themselves, and uninspired music. Some of them are new and interesting, it’s true, but not a large percentage. I guess it’s something to do, but it’s never really worth the inconvenience of finding a spot, getting home SLOWLY, and generally dealing with crowds.
Maybe some day they’ll get wise to my subconscious, and make things a little more Devoesque.
