I thought they were FANTASTIC last night! However, I have to say I was disappointed with the crowd... They didn't even respond much when asked to sing along to Girlfriends of the Past. I was so excited and stoked to laugh, sing along, generally enjoy myself, I think people in Boston need to loosen up! Even Jemaine commented on the Boston reserve... what up with dat?

Bret. Looks. GREAT!!

And obviously Jemaine looks heart-stopping, as per usual!

I love the first pic with he and Eugene holding hands :lol: how romantic!

Did those ladies have backstage passes? I've heard that from a few tweets about people getting their hands on backstage passes. I didn't even think those EXISTED...

Yeah those girls had backstage passes. One of them said she asked Bret to hold her zebra haha! I know, I wonder how they got their hands on them? Maybe part of some VIP package? It's just like the other lady who even took pictures with them in their dressing room.

That's good advice.

Nancy Hillner wrote:Bird, I LOVE your new avatar! So fitting. Understudy Whitey Piano (or UWP, for short :wink: ) did fine. :whitey: (Is it a he or a she? :hrm: ) The guys used Whitey to intro Business Time in a very different way, and Jemaine even stopped his beginning "Awww girl" to call attention to Bret's difficult, cumbersome shift from piano to guitar. It was hysterical. :rolls:

Thanks, Nancy! :thumb: Glad to hear UWP was up to the task... I hope he isn't afraid of Bret, after seeing what happened to Little Red. (I'm arbitrarily picking "he" to anthropomorphize Bret's new piano, BTW. It could be a she. Frankly I don't know how you would tell. :hrm: And it's certainly not the kind of thing you can just ask.)

I know - I really feel like I MUST know how to get my hands on these *finger quotes* "backstage passes".

Who do I need to schmooze to get one :wink: :lol:

It is, isn't it? *dreamy sigh* And the way Eugene's arm is linked with Jemaine's in the next pic... I've never seen two friends like them. :lol:

Thanks, Venus!

Oh, and BTW - we have that same zebra. Three of them, in fact. We have a herd. :lol:

Wow, Eugene really has piercingly blue eyes....they're gorgeous. Mine just kinda....look out at you without piercing, in a blah way.

They look so cute holding hands....and poor Bret. Just look at his eyes. You can tell he's still not up to par there. Looks like he's not getting enough rest. {{{{Bret}}}}

Sometimes people just want to be looked at, without being pierced. :) Eugene does have pretty eyes, though.

Heh, heh, :roll2: :rolls: :bounce:
I'd forgotten about that. Also, when Jemaine brought out the xylophone for If You're Into It, he said, "This is a xylophone. (Doing a sort of Vanna White demo of it) We have to play this song more often because we have xylophone t-shirts for sale." :lol:

Kelly, I've been in the business many years and I just don't know the right people to obtain passes from. You really have to know the right person,(tech, business, PR, whatever) or win some in a contest. (Like Tracey and Kipper. :wink: ) And that would be the official meet and greet, as opposed to the chance meetings we've had in the past.

Such a fun show! I had a great view of the screen and took some video:
http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=smu ... iew=videos

Wish I'd recorded the whole thing, I tended to miss the really funny stuff and just get the aftermath :P But I have all of "Jenny" and "If You're Into It" (with "rockenspiel"), most of "Gingerballs", a bit of "Stana", some fun bits from the end of "Think About It", "Sugalumps", "In Love With a Sexy Lady" just after Bret screwed up, Jemaine nicknaming Boston... cute stuff! Some blurry pieces of the human pyramid discussion and the guys making whale noises will go up later unless someone has a better recording.

Nancy, my sister and I definitely saw you! Or your awesome sweatshirt, at least :)
