IGGY & THE STOOGES at RIOT FEST | 9/21/13 The Stooges came out on stage like a burst of fire and wind from another part of the world and got going with "Raw Power." From there, it was near constant dramatic movement from Iggy Pop, who struck poses as he choreographed how and where he would move next. This was when he wasn't waving his hands in the air and getting the crowd going with exuberant thank yous to us for showing up. Getting to see and hear James Williamson play guitar alongside Mike Watt on bass, Steve Mackay on saxophone and even a fill-in drummer for Scott Asheton would have been surreal because of, yes, the sheer power of the performance except that it was so visceral it simply kept you riveted.
