Bjork delights in Richmond

By Jim Harrington, mercurynews.com

The Icelandic alt-rock legend, who is now 20 years into her solo career, is certainly still pushing boundaries. Her current Biophilia Tour is one of the most wildly adventurous shows in rock 'n' roll history.

The singer launched this trek in June 2011 and has been slowly, steadily moving it about the globe, usually performing multiple nights in each market. On Wednesday, the multimedia spectacular finally reached the Bay Area — setting up shop at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond. The show will be repeated on Saturday and Tuesday.

The Craneway isn't well known for hosting concerts, and it's safe to say that most fans had to use GPS to even find the building. Yet, it proved to be a perfect spot for the production. It was roomyenough for the "in-the-round" setup, with fans on each side of the stage, and the large windows provided great views of the Bay. Plus, the sound was crisp and clean in the building, allowing the many musical nuances to be heard — even if it wasn't always clear what, indeed, we were hearing. I hope that promoters decide to host more major shows at the Craneway.
