hi all,

let the record show that i try to wait until at least 10 am for *someone else* to share their musings about the concert i went to the night before, but when 10 am rolls around i can't keep my trap shut!

last night in providence was just fabulous. first off, lets give (as amy says in her cutest white girl twang) props to the providence performing arts center-- what a fantastically beautiful venue! from the ornate gilt carvings on the ceiling, to the plush and cushy red velvet seats, to the sweet old folks who seated us in black bowties....truly a great place to see a show (nice acoustics don't hurt either). although it was once again a more 'sedate' crowd than i liked, there seemed to be peaceful coexistence between the dancers and the sitters (for the most part). the set list didn't stray too far from the sets of the last several shows i've seen-- still no drums or bass, sadly, so i think there's only so much variation they can do with that....my brain categorize shows into 'amy songs' and 'emily songs' so here goes my effort:

amy: shame on you, starkville, become you, gone again, devotion, kid fears, moment of forgiveness, chickenman and biterroot...some others i can remember
emily: deconstruction, get out the map, it's alright, you've got to show, virginia woolf (yay!), she's saving me, power of two...some others i can't remember

and of course the standards; ctf,  galileo, and least complicated.

amy was chattier than usual, and told an especially amusing story about having gone to east greenwich high school that day to talk about 'di-ver-si-teeeee" and noting that these days, the more of a freak you are, the better! she said that when she and emily were in high school, it was all about being as normal as possible...then she stopped herself and sai "if you're normal, that's okay too, that's great too...everyone's great!". it was totally charming.

they must have heard my little prayer because they did bust into finlandia with carol at the end of the encore, but it was kind of spoiled at the end when some buffoon yelled out 'god bless america!'  as they finished. they both looked pretty dismayed when they walked off stage--who can blame them? you sing this gorgeous song about global unity and peace, and you get bombarded with god bless america. geez

and of course the ultimate highlight was our very own flora brown, baigl extarordinaire, who got invited by amy to come out on stage and talk about the social justice organizations that the concert's proceeds supported. we're so proud a ya, flora! you were amazing!

that's it from my end. see y'all in gilford in a few hours
