Welcome Pesco and Sorcyress!
Michele, Vienna mentioned that this was the first show for the *pedal* looper.
Wonderful to hear Daughter, Drought, Eric's Song, Unwritten Letter #1, and Between, none
of which I've ever heard live (altho I guess Eric's Song was in the set at Freight and Salvage online?). If I'd had a wish-list, the only one missing would have been Decade and One. It was totally reasonable for Vienna to include The Tower, Gravity, and Soon Love Soon even though they are among her most played songs. It's always somebody's
first show, and they need to hear the songs that will bring them back. They'll want the others later. I expect to hear Harbor next time, and that's ok.
Funny that Vienna made fun of Unwritten Letter as a poor tango. I'm a total sucker for all of her "dance" songs, from Unwritten Letter and Between to I Don't Feel So Well (a "better" tango?) and the world's gentlest bossa nova, Transcontinental 1:30 AM. Hopefully hear the last of those in a couple of months.
The chat window is interesting. I don't get to know the other people in a live audience that well, with a few major exceptions. Interesting to identify other nuclei of fans than the Forumites, for instance, the Cayamo crowd. I notice that people chatting are starting to include their online shows in their total of shows seen. Maybe how we see music is changing.
Someone on chat had waltzed to Between at Stanford. Legendary.
Happy to know that the audio can be that good, and I'm sure we'll get there on the video (lighting) in due course. Lots to look forward to.
Subjective highlight: Eric's Song. It's the lyrics. Always blows my mind it was written by a 19-year-old. (Gosh, could my daughter write that in 2 years? Hope not, LOL
