Live Review: Dancing in the Streets

I doubt the crowd at this year's Dundee Day rock show was expecting what it got when a sweaty, shirtless Darren Keen, a.k.a. The Show Is the Rainbow, jumped from the stage into the audience like a 250-pound Tolkien (or maybe, more suitably, toke-in') battle dwarf, his shaggy red beard blowin' in the wind as he performed his unique style of electronic funk-rock to a sheepish, half-drunk...
