The set-up of his live performance doesn't sound like much -- it's basically just Glass himself and a mixing board on a stage -- but then again, neither does radio, and as he does there, Glass makes the most of what he's got on the stage, using lights (or the absence of lights), clips from This American Life, back-stories and his own distinctive voice to build a weird, fascinating and heartfelt case for the medium he calls his own. Seriously, I saw his show when he came to the Paramount last year, and I can't recommend it enough. It was fantastic.
Speaking of that show, it sold out in a matter of days, and being that this upcoming one is one performance only, it probably will, too. So get your tickets quick if you're thinking about going.
It happens on Sunday, October 30, at 3 p.m. at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins; tickets, which went on sale today, are $45 (or $100 for a private reception with Glass). For more information, call the Lincoln Center box office at 970-221-6730.
