Incubus makes it look easy
Review: The band's great Greek opener once again proves it is a cut above the rest of the modern-rock fray.
By BEN WENER
The Orange County Register

Incubus has rarely been the sort of band to break into between-song banter at gigs – the most you usually get are some sincere "thanks, boys and girls" from vocalist Brandon Boyd and maybe a not-completely-audible muttering or two. So it was endearing and even a little humanizing to witness a bit of off-the-cuff playfulness just before "Wish You Were Here" concluded the quintet's first of two standing-room-only shows Tuesday night at the Greek Theatre.

It began when guitarist Mike Einziger noticed a bug near his foot pedals apparently as large as a golf ball and motioned Boyd over to check it out. "It's not poisonous" Boyd determined after first handing it to a fan in the pit to examine, then accidentally dropping it somewhere in the array of drummer José Pasillas' kit while insisting the overgrown insect was nothing more than a beetle.

That still gave Pasillas the willies, though, as he leapt from his stool while bassist Ben Kenney, upon hearing the word "beetle," slipped into the riff from "Day Tripper." "Look at how (bleeping) scared he is right now," Boyd told the crowd, again reassuring a twitching Pasillas (while a roadie recovered the bug-beast) that "it may be July, but it's just a junebug."

"I'm glad you guys could see tonight," Boyd remarked, remembering some 6,000-plus people were watching. "We are so professional."

Actually, they are – and in the best way possible. In a modern-rock world overrun by Nickelback clones and flat-footed hangers-on who were momentarily popular at the turn of the millennium, Incubus is that rare exception: an ever-evolving unit with a distinct style that continues to incorporate influences and detours few other bands of its ilk would dare.

It helps, too, that they have arguably the most powerful singer in all of hard rock at the moment – note those non-falsetto high ones Boyd reaches with effortless force and tell me who else still in action can measure up. But what really sets Incubus apart – what has come to form the backbone of its deepening arsenal of infectious blasts and roaring anthems – is its across-the-board first-rate musicianship.
