I sat in the 15th row dead center and was surprised to see Todd's mom, Ruth right in front of me. I was lucky enough to chat with her during intermission - a real treat.
Jesse was here for this show and that gives Todd a break on guitar. I had enjoyed this show when Todd played all the guitar parts but Jesse is an extremely talented player. I missed Hawking and Kindness (which was written for TR's Dad's Mom according to Ruth)
Here's the list:
Lysistrata - Broken string right off the bat. Puts down the "Black Tak" and picks up the "Blond Tak" and picks up where he left off - awesome start. I Don't Want To Tie You Down Love of the Common Man Black & White Beloved Infidel Lunatic FringeA full 2 hour show. Todd seemed in good spirits and joked around most of the night - especially with his vocal difficulties. Good to see some old TR friends - Evan and Don and the guys who do the human wave - and meet some new ones like Tapeworm. See you next time around.
Off to the piano for: It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference Viking Song Compassion - Best song of the night! Free, Male and 21 Hey Philly - It's me
Back on the "UKE" and Black Tak: Bang the Uke You've Got to Hide Your Love Away I've Just Seen a Face
