Airborne Toxic Event Performing at the MFA Boston
I've been seeing lots of cool videos the last few weeks, and today fell onto one that is remarkable for a few reasons. One, it is a live video of Airborne Toxic Event, who I happen to think are fantastic, emotional, and a musical feast for the ears (and in this case, eyes). Two, the video captures them playing for a very small group of Boston radio station (WFNX) winners in an intimate setting. Three, they are performing inside an exhibit hall at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. If you've never been to the MFA, its like going to any other large art museum- huge, cavernous, serene, and usually extremely, extremely quiet. The idea of plopping a raucous band with lots of singers and lots of instruments into an environment that is just the opposite is such a unique idea, and the video captures it. Its older, from 2011, but good is good.
