& PICS OF MATCHSTICKMEN!!! The 1st time I've heard it live.
However, last show I went to though on Jan 2 in Norfolk VA they played more CVB than I have ever heard them do. In Jan they did Take the Skinheads Bowling (closed with it) Sad Lover's Waltz
They didn't play Low or Get Off This til near the end, & I can honestly tell you, if they didn't play them I wouldn't have missed them. It was such a vonderful show. Well worth the $8.50 & the 250 mile round trip & the $15 my truck sucked out of my wallet for gas. The whole audience seemed to be REAL fans almost all singing word for word, at least up front where I was.
Also before the show Bob Rupe stood near the gate with a lady & chatted with fans for a while. He was nice.
Also, as in true Johnny fashion, his hair was perfect. You really can tell the man used to do hair :) He also had this real cool button up shirt. It had a somewhat oriental dragon on it, quite spiffy.
Also Cowboy Mouth wasn't bad. I had never heard of them besides one song until today. It's good drinking music.

Now for Cracker. They came on at 8pm and opened with 100 FPM. They were playing well and they looked like they were enjoying themselves... here's the rest of the set list as I recall... somewhat out of order...
This Is Cracker Soul St. Cajetan 7 Days (*new*) I Ride My Bike I Hate My Generation Teen Angst Pictures of Matchstick Man Low Get Off This Loser Sweet Thistle Pie Shiner Song Useless Stuff Been Around (*new*) The World Is Mine(*new*) Lonesome Johnny Blues Mr. Wrong Eurotrash GirlThe show was great! I think I got some good pictures if they turn out... You can see them here. These guys are just so great...The sound wasn't perfect... I think the farther from the stage you were the worse the sound was, but what do you expect from an out door stage. I still thing Been Around is just a totally AWESOME song that just knocks me off my feet. Oh Kenny was with them on keyboards on accordion.

Seem to me to be more talkin' than singin.' All psyched for Friday's town point park concert!!!
One last note I have to share: at one point Bob Rupe threw his guitar pick out in the crowd at random and it just happened to land in this beer cup that this guy was holding. 2pts for Bob! Great concert :-)
