First Encore -- Hammer In My Heart
Second Encore -- Worldwide Epiphany

It's Official, says Todd -- Kasim broke his foot. KS came on and off on crutches and sat throughout the show. Though TR wouldn't say how it happened, knowing looks were exchanged before and during CIJTY. Todd did the kicks alone.

This was the first East Coast show with a modest crowd of the faithful. The sound was mediocre, particularly abysmal guitar/vocal mix during CIJTY and in the second half of the show. Searing rendition of "Trapped," great versions of "B+W," "Yer Fast" and "Temporary Sanity."

Felt like TR needed to get to the next gig -- the band performs tomorrow at noon on CNBC Power Lunch, then tomorrow night on Conan. Sorry we didn't get treated to "The Surf Talks" -- IMHO, the best song by anyone of the last two years, not just TR. My 13-year-old daughter digs it too!

This was my first Todd show in two decades without my late friend, Bob Deyerberg -- a Todd fan, a real man. He would have loved it. Best regards to all.
