Gorillaz are human after all

In today's Calendar, I talked with Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett about the recently reanimated ensemble Gorillaz, which plays the Gibson Amphitheatre tonight (with Lou Reed in tow!). Those who remember their Coachella set this year might recall a distinct difference in this live setup -- it was dominated by live musicians. This current tour is a bit heavier on the projections, but as Albarn said, "You don't have Paul Simonon and Mick Jones in your band and obscure them." No, no you don't. Read the whole feature here.
