Debated whether to share this...but what the **
Thanks to SA I have a friend from Iowa, met him at the Surf ballroom show 4-5 years ago. He took something like 500 pictures that show/ sent them to me, we have stayed in touch through e-mails and bumping into each other at SA the last few years.
Talked to him after the entry show; we missed after the 1st Ave show, so he e-mailed and we went back and forth.
He asked what I thought of the show, this is part of his first e-mail…
...No great photos to share from this show – didn’t even bring in the camera, knew wouldn’t get close enough. We were quite a ways back, closer to the doors than to the stage… I was standing next to some old dude jotting notes in a notebook so talked with him some. Turns out he was writing for the star trib blog, nothing too exciting in there. Though I guess I’m the “hardcore fan” he references.
I return; say pretty much what I said above…
He then returns **
...it was one of the strangest shows I’ve been to. At one point I looked at my buddy *** and asked “this is an album release show, right?” cuz he hadn’t mentioned it at all. The star trib guy actually said to me that he thought they played too many new songs?! We thought for sure he’d address the issues too, everyone around us was confused to say the least
The rest of the e-mail chain isn’t pertinent or has already been stated.
Nothing else to add concerning the show...
Tracy ** loved the pix, he's the "coolest" 9 year old around.
he'll have quite a story tell to his class this fall when the teacher asks what did everyone do that was fun this summer.
