Iggy and the Stooges

Better than: Mickey Mouse in a bar brawl.
For someone with such an intimidating background and such ample chest muscles, Iggy Pop bounds rather adorably onto the concert stage. Sunday night at the Warfield, as the lights went out and the initial blast of “Raw Power” hit like the first swing in a drunken fistfight, Iggy Pop came bounding — yes, a careening blend of bouncing and running — out to his public, surly and of course shirtless, but also somewhat like an enthusiastic cartoon bunny. Pop then proceeded to shake, jump, twist, flail, fall, run, taunt, flirt, hug, stage dive (or stage fall — no fewer than five times), and shout his way through an hour of rock assault.
