hey all-

just back from a nice two days in baltimore. great show. beautiful weather
too. me and the wife saw the sites during the day, one of which was emily at
soundcheck from the pier 5 lighthouse. she was working on a new song but
didn't play it that night. we left early so not sure if amy joined her for a
full soundcheck or not. this was about 4pm. there were some others enjoying
it too. sounded great from the top of the lighthouse. after the show, i hung
out with some others waiting for amy/emily but they were't coming out. too
many people i think. sarah and gert were there and talked to a bunch of us
though. i got them to sign my ticket stub. both are incredibly nice and
friendly. "thank's" again to the lady who let me borrow her pen. i couldn't
believe how tall sarah was.

[...] here are the actual full setlists -

get out the map
become you
power of two
ozilline
deconstruction
jonas and ezekial (instead of "three hits")
watershed
yield
collecting you
shame on you
virginia woolf
johnny rottentail
closer to fine (with sarah from k's choice)
starkville
least complicated
philosophy of loss
take it in stride (amy new song)
kid fears (with ghert from k's choice)
galileo
- ---encore----
deliverance
chickenman/bitterroot*

* incredible 10 minutes. the crowd was going nuts. emily's solo totally
different and rocked.

k's choice- no encore - about 30min
if you're not scared
my heart
??
new "wedding song" **
almost happy
my head
god in my bed
busy

** pretty sure this is brand new.

have fun at the remaining shows everyone. i'll see them in harrisburg on the
30th for the last time this year.

peace.
dpm.

hi all,
noone weighing in yet on poughkeepsie last night so i'll try to sum up the
highlights. i have to say, this was one of the
most pleasant ga experiences at a show i've ever had-- thanks to the brave
souls deb and michelle, we had a spot right
in front, and for once it actually stayed that way-- the early arrivers lined
up orderly and actually got in first. the venue
staff was very accomodating of our stress about having interlopers jump in  
line in front of us, and as it turned out, our
fears of being pushed out were unfounded. it's nice to start the night out on
the railing like you planned.
k's choice opened and were wonderful. sarah's voice is just so pure and lovely,
and the way they are so gracious sets
such a nice tone for the evening. once the girls took the stage, the show
itself was quite amazing, punctuated by
especially rockin versions of chickenman, faye tucker (i'm wrong about thinking
that song can't be played acoustic and
be good!), shame on you, become you, and amy's new solo song (which she
referred to as 'dairy queen', the first line
refers to someone being 'drunk and mean down at the dairy queen'). no band,
just carol, which was unexpected but not
bad (tho i miss brady!). emily highlights included wood song, collecting you,
deconstruction, and a positively blistering
solo on chickenman. the crowd was amazing-- loud and sing-y during the singy
songs, quiet and attentive during
starkville, the quiet parts of faye tucker, and ghost. all in all, a
terrifically pleasing ga concert experience, renewing my
faith in these kinds of shows! i was getting old and cranky about them for a
while.
finally, a truly rare second encore was played-- the first encore (starkville
and galiileo) brought the crowd to such a
frenzy that didn't die down after they left the stage, so they came back and
played ghost. emily was beaming. it was
one of those really amazing moments that even jaded old ladies like me,
approaching the triple digits soon in shows,
can be humbled by.
off to holmdel, hoping for an eqaully stirring evening.
xxo
sus
