Berlin The Canyon Club 11/25/2011

This is my fifth time seeing Berlin in the last 2 1/2 years. I’ve seen them three times in "80s band" type settings where they’ve played 4-5 songs per set and now twice at the Canyon where they played a full length set.  Their last show at the Canyon was around the same time last year.  For some reason, that show was kind of "low energy"- Terri Nunn seemed depressed or bothered by something- and I felt kind of bad for her.   But not on this evening- this show rocked! Great lighting, great sound and a cool video intro to start their set.    From all the hits ("Take My Breath Away", "No More Words", "The Metro", etc.), to a Jefferson Airplane cover tune, to a Christmas song and Adam Sandler’s "The Hanukkah Song", this was a solid show.   As always, Terri was very personable with the audience- actually venturing out a few times and singing songs throughout the crowd.    At one point, a bunch of people got up on stage and danced along to a tune.   There aren’t many performers that are so accessible at a show like she is.   I realized tonight how much I like the song "Masquerade”- that was one of the highlights of their set.  It seems like the smart people were here enjoying the show while the crazy people were out shopping.    The show lasted about an hour and a half and was a great way to spend the Black Friday evening and usher in the holidays.
