Pentagram took the stage with a spooky soundscape coming through the PA, Bobby Liebling looking like a puppet woken up from a nap and blinking. He was all but twitching to life, pulled along by invisible strings. But when Liebling took the mic, an instantly commanding voice issued forth. He is one of the few rock singers able to combine and synthesize a sense of theater and performance with raw, emotional honesty. He expresses an idiosyncratic poetic sensibility channeled from dark places in his heart and mind. Sure, those wide, wild eyes and waggling tongue and left-handed air guitar all seem odd and almost amusing, but the guy captures your attention from the moment he takes the stage.
