Without going through the entire set list, TODD KICKED BUTT! After starting with Buffalo Grass, The Band covered much ground in their nearly 2 hour set. They played great hard rocking tunes throughout - Black Maria, Mystified/Broke Down and Busted, Number One Lowest Common Denominator, and Black and White to name a few. They also kicked major butt on Red Rider's Lunatic Fringe. They toned down some on songs like Soul Brother and I Saw the Light. Todd also did an anti-church covering with Fascist Christ and Mammon. After shredding these songs with their playing, and Todd's voice (which was dead-on perfect), they encored first with the most moving rendition of Hawking I ever had the pleasure of witnessing, and finished with One World. It was one of those shows you wish would go on for 5 more hours. Realistically, Todd literally had nothing left in the tank. He gave it his all this night.
Atch, you missed a great one, but so glad to hear your Dad's health is improved. Patti, Lisa, Lori and Chris - it was great meeting, chatting and rocking with you. You made a great concert so much better. And Patti, glad you got you nose hairs (was that Foamy you were trying to glom from the roadies?).
