In April 2011 The Residents brought their acclaimed Talking Light tour to Bimbo's 365 Club in San Francisco.
The inspiration behind the Talking Light tour is The Residents' fascination with spooky stories. The Residents realized that what they saw as "Ghost Stories" had become a show about aging & death. They wanted to have fun with the concept and, in true Residents' fashion, their idea of fun is darker and scarier than the mainstream defines it. All of these ghost stories share a common theme, centered around TV culture and commercials, which ultimately asks the question: In a world where nearly everything has been categorized, how do we fulfill our need for the Fuzzy, the Vague or the Supernatural with TV commercials? The Residents have more creative answers for you.
