In Pictures: Tricky in San Francisco
Tricky -- arguably the U.K.'s coolest DJ -- was slated to spend most of December in the coldest parts of North America, touring in support of his new album, "Mixed Race," but brutal weather literally stopped the artist in his tracks.
The tour kicked off on Dec. 9 in New York without a hitch, followed by shows in Montreal and Toronto, but his Chicago and Minneapolis shows were canceled last week after a fierce snowstorm had the tour bus trapped for more than 24 hours in rural Ontario. A local farmer ended up hosting about 30 stranded travelers -- including Tricky and his entourage.
Tuesday night (12/21) offered the first respite from frigid temps, when the band arrived in Northern California to perform at The Independent in San Francisco. Last night (12/22) was the finale among fans at The Troubadour in West Hollywood. SoundSpike photographer Wilson Lee attended the show at The Independent, and here are some of his best shots.
