I'm so glad it looks like good weather. I just looked out at the most beautiful almost-full moon.

I'll keep this short. The show was AMAZING! We met Bret. And we saw Jemaine. We didn't talk to Jemaine because Eugene is a party pooper. The end.

The show was amazing! It was a gorgeous night. There was a full moon and it was a perfect crisp 60 degrees. The venue is awesome, couldn't believe how good the sound was. I was a little worried about that but it was just amazing.

Bret came out and visited with us for a bit, we all got pics & a brief word. He was being hurried along by the tour manager so he was short on time.

Suddenly Jemaine came out and began taking photos, there were 13 of us. One of the girls asked him to call Eugene over, and he did. Unfortunately from that point on Eugene pushed & edged Jemaine over to the van they were to leave in. Jemaine stayed though. He took a few photos and chatted a bit with a few of us. Then Eugene pushed him away. He really tried to stick around. I was really lucky to get a pic with him. I feel awful that Vmh and Eorious didn't get a chance too. :(

I had a bit of a chat with Nigel after the show while the girls ran to the merchandise table. The poster is FAB! It is by Nic Marshall & they are number in a series of 300. The poster is really great. Nigel is such a sweet guy. He gladly obliged and took a photo of the two of us. We had a bit of conversation he is a true gentleman.

We met up with the girls from fotcmb. We had a few giggles and talked awhile. I had my photo taken with the famous sock monkey (Jemaine had his photo taken with same sock monkey in SLC). All of the girls will be in LA also so we will all have the chance to meet up.

I am sorry that I don't have a setlist. I will try my best to list some of the songs. There was a LOT of banter and lots of our favorites as well as all of the new songs. We got Woo A Lady, On the Road, and the one about not loving them anymore. We got the Korean Karaoke, Epileptic Dogs, Who Wants to Rock the Party, Most Beautiful Girl, Jenny, Im Not Crying, Rhym vs. Hippo (btw we all were impregnated tonight), Too Many Dicks, Bowie, Demon Woman, Hurt Feeling, Inner City Pressure, If that's What You're Into, Think About It, Boom King, Robots, Business Time. I can't remember the rest...I will though and I will add to it.

Ok, its 233am and we're waiting for pizza. Will write more soon. We do have pics and vids.

Nighty Night.

The ultimate Jemaine quote of the night:

"You can grind my organ but not that organ."

I'm sitting in the airport waiting to board my first flight and I am squeeing (on the inside) about the meet and greet! Happy that Jemaine at least tried for the meet and greet! Shame on Eugene :tsk:

Really glad that the show was amazing and you all got to talk to Bret.
Shame about Eugene but at least Jemaine got to see a few people and tried to stick around. Here's hoping for some Jemaine m&g action after the next couple of shows.
