the show was lovely. and his band sounded good. and the setting was quite lovely too.
the opening act, however, needed a thesaurus and a big bump of blow. that shit was boring. worse than boring: it was distracting with its badness. but goddamn their cello player was a fine dark-haired looking fellow! cello players, hmmm....
What she said! The string section was the best thing about the first band. That says it all, I think. I really wanted the singer to shut up.
I got there at 5:30 or so and had some drama because the tickets had all been given out already and then found out that a security guard had some extras, so I went and got one and it was cool. Ran into a bunch of friends from the old days, which was pretty cool.
