hkf's,


since no one has piped-up at all about sunday's chiapas benefit at eddie's
attic.  here's my mini-(mainly ig)-review.


before the girls came out (on stage that is), cecila rodriguez, whom a+e met
down in chiapas, spoke passionately about why she was speaking/travelling
all over the us to spread the word on the problems happening in mexico.  and
before her, another woman (who was going to jail b/c of protesting) spoke
about the school of americas in georgia, which in a nut shell is training
foreign soldiers & causing chaos in those foreign countries because of it.
both speakers were very informative & really showed how mexico is so
different than its' neighbor, the us.


anyway, the ig order is close to the following:


nueva senorita, get out the map, gone again, it's alright, ghost, problem
child, thin line.


after nueva, amy & emily were chatting and couldn't decide what to play -
emily said "band meeting!" and eveyone laughed.  they even picked up a set
of guitars, were getting ready to play w/ them & then put them down and
picked up another set of guitars.  it was real funny to see them just play
whatever they wanted.  and, what was even more amazing - was that they had
only two guitars each (i think) and so they (themselves) had to change the
tuning between songs at least twice.  it was just amazing to me to see a&e
tune their own guitars (very quick mind you) after seeing them for the past
5 years just get them handed to them.  (i think they had another discussion
before ghost about what to play - i  heard emily say "ok, i'll play that
damn song again!" - <just kidding on that last part>)


thin line included gerard mchugh & members of big fish ensemble.  the three
new amy songs were so great to hear live (i've only heard gone again
before).  right before gone again emily said: (or maybe before problem
child)- "here's another new song by amy, i don't have any new songs yet, but
hopefully when the next album comes out - i'll have some new songs by then"
laughter from the crowd followed.


the mood was very light, the beer cold, (and the corn was high <oops>) and
the seats scarce - and so it was a great night!  sulli is awesome and of
course so are saliers & ray - the latter of whom i said hello to and am
still recovering from the shock.  (i almost choked on my quesadilla when amy
walked by me earlier that night).


the morale of the story:  don't carry sharp objects or spicy finger foods
when in the same room as amy, or you might hurt yourself.
