Each month, countless bands tour the United States on the nostalgia ticket. What these shows generally present is a fond recollection of a time when both the band and the audience were fresher and tighter; the concert experience triggering a collective "Remember when?" for all involved. The nostalgia is often the best part of these shows, as the bands generally don't sound nearly as together as they did in the past.
Refreshingly, and somewhat surprisingly, Sunday night's Psychedelic Furs show was not this type of concert whatsoever. Despite striking an obvious reminiscent chord with its audience, the band's sound and performance were very much in the present.
