I took some pictures and I will announce when they are posted. It'll probably be a few days.
Sometimes there are shows in small clubs, and the vibe is just right such that one or two songs will stand out--those are the "I saw the image of Jesus in a tortilla" sort of pseudo-religious experiences. Yesterday's show didn't really create any of those for me, but it was GREAT anyway. The guys were tired (talking to them after the show it was obvious) but they didn't show it on stage.
It was my first time seeing Brandy, and wow, she just seemed mellow and groovy and good. Johnny was resplendent in red-and-white checkered PJs and sunglasses. He really got into his Euro Trash Girl solo, and the crowd loved it. David was very mellow and witty, no crowd-heckling, introduced Kenny (who emerged on accordian as usual, eliciting a comment from someone behind me--wow, that accordion's from HELL, the colors and everything, and he's GOOD on it!) as being from Fort Collins, CO (yeah, sure). Frank was pure cool in his big dark sunglasses and big hat.
They played Teen Angst and Low as crowd pleasers, LJB, Matchstick Men, ah yes... and Loser--perfect for the hippie faction of the crowd. I heard nothing I'd never heard, but a few things I've rarely heard. It was not a full- length concert. The radio station was actually kind of rude to Shannon Curfman when they told her to wrap it up for Cracker; then as soon as the show was over it was "everybody out!" I tried to pry for summer tour information, but all we seem to know is "it'll be a full year." When and where, TBA.

I might be repeating what others have already said. If so, sorry.
