Its been a long while since I have heard/seen a theramin. The memory I do have (Stanford Theater, sometime in the '80s) might actually be a false one (was it a picture? a movie? did I actually see one?). I'd love to hear one played again.
As I was cruising the event postings for Christmas week for my town, I ran into this ad. It mentioned Burlesque, Theramins and Odd Live Music. My heart soared, my interest picqued, I was ready to slap down some credit and get tickets.
Then I saw the date. Its smack dab on Christmas, when I'll be hanging out with my family.
AND THEN I saw it was hosted by the Church of Satan, sending my Inner Puritan into fits.
PS. After my initial disappointment, I realized that the Satanists don't have a monopoly on the theramin. So, after a little digging, I found a theramin lounge band that has dates in my neighborhood next month! I don't have to sell my soul! Or leave my 'hood! Or suffer hellish opening acts!
