As always, the show was fantastic - there's nothing like going down to the harbor and listening to great music while watching ships go by.

I was further away from the stage than I was hoping, as I had not anticipated a line all the way through the naval park and finding the end of it took forever, so I could not molest Murray, sorry [livejournal.com profile] jkpolk. I can state he was waring a green shirt, though, and looked very fine.

I kept trying to see if Alan still had the beard. I really did not get a good look at him as a very very tall gentleman about five rows up blocked my view of that half of the stage a lot of the time, so not a lot of Murray either. /And/ a tree blocked my view of Bob on the right most of the time. So I looked at Sean a lot. I prefer Alan, really, but Sean's very nice to look at.

The set was a lot of their older songs, and a nice mix between the bouncier I-must-do-vertical-movement-right-now songs and slower songs. I pretty much got to hear everything I wanted: Lukey, General Taylor, Turn, Consequence Free, Mari Mac, Ordinary Day, England, Excursion Around the Bay, and, of course, Old Black Rum. Hubby wanted Walk 0n The Moon and did not get it, alas.

I tried to sneak a couple of pictures on my cell phone camera but all you get is bright lights and a bunch of people in the way, so I'm not going to stick them up.

But still, an excellent, excellent show. My hip has completely stiffened up and hates me and I don't care. :)

It is currently a long, long week, but with the promise of Great Big Sea at the end of it. Which is both exciting and making the week seem that much longer...

Got my GenCon badge and event tickets a couple of days ago, so I can hold them and pet them and generally get all excited about going.

Also got my Great Big Sea tickets for September - they'll be playing at the Harbor again, and that was an excellent show! I should probably remember bug spray this time, though.

And TMBG are playing a Flood show in Cleveland right around my birthday, so my sister and I are considering taking Greyhound out there. That would be an awesome birthday present, since I got into TMBG when Flood came out.

I'm not sure what I'm more excited about right now - they're all pretty much neck and neck in terms of making me happy and bouncy. :)

A little silliness for you...

I had a dream Friday morning that GBS were playing on top of a shed by my mother-in-law's place. I remember I was watching them by looking out a window on the second floor, and Alan turned around while singing, saw me watching and smiled.

Nice dream, right?

So I'm on the bus going to work a few hours later (wide awake, alas) and GBS pops on my lovely iPod. Not overly surprising as they are the band with the 2nd most songs on there, behind TMBG. I remember the dream and chuckle.

Here is where it gets wierd. After work, I'm randomly flipping through the 25 or so tv channels I have, and come across PBS's pledge drive. And it's them showing GBS, with the b'ys in the studio. Including Alan.

Now, I do realize that it was a pre-taped thing for whatever PBS station wants to buy the program and they weren't actually in the Buffalo studios, but it was still neat, given the dream.

So, yeah.
Concidence - but fun.
