The Residents @ Scottish Rite - 1/31/2013
The Residents @ Scottish Rite - 1/31/2013

The Residents have been bringing their art to audiences for more than 40 years, and are currently on the aptly-named Wonder of the Weird Tour. That trek stopped in Austin on January 31 for a show at the Scottish Rite Theater. There was a bit of holiday-themed set and costumery; if you are familiar with The Residents, you should know that wasn't the oddest part of the show.

The eyeballed ones are on the East Coast now, but Nemo has canceled their show that was to have happened tonight in Northhampton, MA which will now happen February 13, one day after their Boston show.

From there, "All shows are a go at this time - weather permitting," is the official word from Cryptic Corporation HQ, and that includes the NYC show on Saturday (2/9) at Stage 48 and tickets are still available. Updated tour dates and more pics from Austin are below.

wish they kept up with the big productions like they used to have...this pared-down show doesn't seem as interesting.

Bad idea getting hung up on some show seen decades ago or some video you watched or what this group is now versus how one perfers to remember them.

I saw them back in the day with Snakefinger too, and ever since, including last night in DC. This band is more deeply strange than ever, don't let the lack of frills fool you. They are far beyond the novelty act they were in the 70's and 80's, now it's a psychological show that includes aging, tarnished reflection and wasted potential as major themes. The show was intense and very gratifying to me as a life long Rez fan.

I have become enlightened. Everything makes sense now. My body is made of sunlight.
