Well, there Dedra and her husband are just south of Dallas right now. So that makes 3 of us. Sorry, none of us will be taking pictures. I don't have a decent pocket camera and my Canon is way too bulky to bring in. We are bringing it, just in case they have a m&g after.

A tweet from Eugene last night around 1am said they were on their way Austin then and he's already tweeted from here at 11am.

Bass Concert Hall is just one of those venues where I don't want to deal with hassle of security or hiding my camera in uncomfortable places :wink: .

Gotcha. :)
I can't tell you how nervous we were about tking our cameras into the Fox- especially after we heard there were going to be metal detectors. But the crowd was so thick we handed off our purses, security stuck a wand barely inside for about 1 second and that was it- we were in.

I had made a false-bottom in my purse, though, lol, plus my camera isn't anything professional with a big lens.

I put this in the Detroit thread so apologies for being redundant....but after we were seated we said hi to our security dude. He seemed really nice and so I just flat-out asked him what the policy was for picture-taking. He said it was supposed to be no cameras but that if I wanted to get some shots that'd be ok, just not to go overboard, no flash, and no filming. :D I showed him my camera and how I'd covered over the flash...he laughed. He couldn't have been nicer, so we were pretty lucky.

We saw loads of people filming, taking camera-pics, and other ushers/security telling peeps to put away their cameras but I don't believe I saw any get confiscated.

Then of course during Sugalumps, Jemaine and Bret chastising people for filming or photographing their Sugalumps. Bret was 2 ft from me and watched as I took his picture.... :worry:

OK, I'm the first.

The singing and dancing were as good as I expected. Sugarlumps was much better at the show than on TV because they added so many funny descriptions of their SLs that would not have been allowed on TV. And the dancing was funny.

I have no set list for you. But I will say that played all the songs from the One Night Stand except "Issues" and "Boom." Bus Driver was exactly like the version on the Folk The World CD, so I sang along. I would have liked to have heard "Carol Brown" but they played several other songs from Season 2.

There was no M & G. There were maybe 30 to 40 people waiting at the most, but people kept leaving when the security guards told us the guys had left - several times. So they wouldn't have been overwhelmed. In fact we were all standing in a nice little line with nearly as many guys as girls. It wasn't crazy like a lot of the other venues I've read about.

They skipped the other TX venues also.

Cool! :thumb: Sounds like a good show. I hope they do BSD in Portland. They do it pretty much every show, it seems, so I'm assuming they will.
