Thomas Dolby brings time capsule and new music to NYC’s Canal Room

As innovative as Thomas Dolby was in the 1980s, his visionary edge to music and presentation continues to impress as the synth-whiz brings his latest imaginative concoction, a time capsule, on his current U.S. tour.
On March 29, 2012, Dolby brought his keyboards, band and his clever contraption to New York City’s Canal Room.
One might ask: “How might a man who became arguably the face of synth-new wave, developed an efficient music downloading format, blindsided fans with a superb eclectic new album and accompanied that with an interactive internet game top all of that?” Dolby’s longtime fans found out that night as the capsule rolled in, attached to the his tour bus after a stellar night of classics, stories and new music from the man who brought them tales of submarines, pirate twins and hyperactivity.
