Although singer Bryan Ferry mixes a lot of Roxy Music classics into his ongoing sets as a solo performer, the interpretations by his current backup band are merely a faint and polite echo of the madcap intensity of the early Roxy Music lineups, particularly the versions with saxophonist Andy Mackay, avant-garde iconoclast Brian Eno, lead guitarist Phil Manzanera and drummer Paul Thompson. Ferry reunited the band (crucially without the reclusive Eno), reportedly for the last time, in 2011, but tonight a group of local art-rock all-stars attempts to stir up the old magic with a tribute set. The participation of such heavy and savvy musicians as The Contortions’ Adele Bertei, drummer Joe Berardi (The Fibonaccis, Lydia Lunch) and keyboardist Paul Roessler (Nina Hagen, Screamers) offers hope that this will be more than just another typically empty exercise in tribute-band nostalgia.
