KCRW’s giving you a great opportunity to see what’s going on at the Bowl this evening from the comfort of your own home. Better still, they’re promising “full screen” capability. Now, before you get too excited, you’re not going to get the “Astral Weeks featuring original session players” portion of the evening - you’ll have to wait for the DVD from Van’s camp for that - but you might still get a few chestnuts nonetheless (”Into the Mystic”? “And It Stoned Me”? Tune in and hope for the best. Streaming instructions will show up here sometime today.) Finally, KCRW would like you to know that (a) this will not be archived, and (b) it is a triply-historic first time event for the Bowl, Van Morrison and KCRW. For the fathers and dads out there going to see Pete Townshend at the Troub this evening, see if you can stream the event on your smartphone and show it to Pete, just for kicks. Godspeed.
