Anyway, back to the show. The Cracker show was great as usual. And even though the crowd was small, they were pretty into it. And it was kind of nice for a change to have some space to move around in. They opened with Been Around the World. Followed by: 7 Days, Teen Angst, and Lonesome Johnny.
After that I lost track of the order (sorry, I was busy taking pictures that hopefully came out - they said no flash allowed so I abided and the pics are probably a crap shoot. But towards the end, someone started using a flash so at least some towards the end of my roll should be okay. I'll send them to Jess for the web page as soon as I get them back).
So back from my tangent...here are the rest of the songs that I can remember - out of order: Circus, Shiner Song (David said this was in honor of the small town in Texas where he was born - wonder if there's a connection with ShinerBock beer brewed in Shiner, TX?), St. Cajetan, Mr. Wrong (and Johnny did show us his "bad tatoo" - hope the pic comes out!), Low, Hold of Myself, Eurotrash Girl, 100FPM, Big Dipper, Infirmary, Matchstick Men, World is Mine. For the encore: I See the Light, Good Life, and Ride My Bike. For all of you Bob fans, you should have been there - during the final jam/cacophony of Ride My Bike...Bob (not David) smashed the bass drum with the head of his guitar. It was like nothing I'd ever seen out of Bob. I don't know if he was pissed or just being frisky...but he walked off stage with a big grin on his face (wish I'd had some film left for that one).
So, a great show all around. I was supposed to go to the Dallas show as well. I managed to get one of the Everything guys to put me on the guest list, but when we got there we weren't on it (turns out he remembered, but had lost my business card - bummer). Everything was already on stage and the person I was with didn't really want to fork over the $16 for the show (I didn't put up too much of a fight since I'd gotten my fix the night before). Sounds like from the review I read I didn't miss much (although any Cracker experience is a good one). I did notice standing with the Everything guys at the end of the evening, that they played "I Hate My Generation" as part of the encore. I haven't heard them do that in a while since they started touting their "100% alternative-free" slogan. I was sorry I missed that - especially with the brainwashed frat boys there to be able to scream it at.
