Yesterday (Tuesday, February 5) was Residents day here in Atlanta. The group made a stop at Variety Playhouse on their 40th anniversary Wonder of Weird tour, and were joined by long-time collaborator Molly Harvey for a performance of "Monkey Man" from the album Animal Lover.

Afterward, Eric Grantham of local bands Vegan Coke, deadCAT, Babar, and Sexwax had this to say about the show ...

"It truly was a Wonder of Weird, and I think it weirded me out a little more than the last time I saw them. The Residents are a live panic attack - from start to finish the show made me uncomfortable, on edge, hungry, sad, happy, and it completely blew my brains out. Honestly, I think the Residents are the only band whose almost endless amount of releases do not over shadow their roller coaster ride through a deranged mans mind of a show."

... Couldn't have said it better myself.
