Webster Hall is a great venue....I was having a hard time believing I was at the old Ritz.....in the lobby i remember the exact place some dude puked on my sneakers before an APB show in '87 or '88, and the restrooms gave me a serious case of deja vu, but i didn't really recognize the room itself. but I loved it and i hope more shows are booked there.
to paraphrase TR pre-HIM, the best thing about these shows is running into people you haven't seen in a while. this was close to a perfect day....a great morning / afternoon , then spending some quality time with my best girlfriend Joy, having the Doods join us for chow and sangria, and running into more friends at the show......Joy's seen utopia in the early '80's, but I don't think she expected to enjoy the show quite as much as she did; as i said in my Peekskill review, THIS is the show that you bring your friends to, and my friend loved it, and now she gets exactly why i'm such a big toddhead. i'm only sorry my bro blew it off, i would have loved to experience this show with the person who turned me on to Todd 25 years ago.
