Oh my gosh, I had a 500 word post ready to submit, and my computer just went haywire and I lost it all!!!!!!!
I wrote about the little red piano's end being preserved on tape, so we'll never really be without it.
I turned to the girl next to me with my hands on my face, horrified, and said, Oh no, he used that little red piano so much last night, what'll he do? He loved that little guy! Out came little whitey piano, the understudy, with plenty big shoes to fill. You did well, whitey.
Welcome to the big time!
Anyway, I mentioned that I loved both shows, but Wednesday's definitely rocked more, especially for me because of the songs they did. I could understand Stana better in row FF than in the pit, but I have to say it was a joy to be that close on Tues.
Musically they were truly on top of their game both nights, and I was happy they did Sello Tape and Prostitute. SW nailed it as far as the highlight songs. They both really wailed on Demon Woman!!! Way to go, guys!
The New Zealand Orchestra (Nigel
) was a real treat. I can't wait for you future concertgoers to experience the wonderfully tasteful musical additions he brings to the show. Just thinking about the original approach to Motha'uckas makes me smile.
I'm glad I'm seeing them again tomorrow in Boston.
Also, the more I thought about it, I realized, they've got to be in Philly Saturday for two shows, so I will be very surprised if they do a meet and greet after Friday's show. I promise I'll post if they do.
