hi all, [long, skim down to the set list and amy conversation for the short
version]

just back from a great trip to nyc where i went w/friends to see the ct
show.  ah, so good to see them again.  my friend's b-in-law is on the venue
board so we had front row seats.  well, kinda front row--there's a moat
between the stage and the seats, too funny.  great show! em, if i recall,
had jeans and a blue button down on and has lost a ton of weight since i
saw them last.  amy had on striped pants and a t-shirt and was her usual
beautiful self.  it was raining, but that didn't matter once they started.
:)  the stage was covered, but open, so one of the funniest parts was when
a *very* large bug dropped down by emily while she was playing.  she
stopped and said something about  the "bigass bug." sulli came in w/a
tissue to save the day; she picked it up, brought it to the back of the
stage and let it go.  there were also bats swooping on the stage at times,
which was very cool.  they seemed in good spirits.  emily was especially
interactive--she made a lot of eye contact and laughed. amy smiled a bunch,
too, but it was one of her playing w/her eyes closed nights.  we wanted to
dance, but weren't allowed, so we yelled up to the stage, "they won't let
us dance." (apologies to the non-dancers--no need to have that discussion
again--lol) emily said some thing like, "it sounds like there's some
oppression going on.  come on.  given all that's happening in today's
world, people should be able to dance."  shortly after, the bouncers (who
were very nice) got word from their walkie-talkies to move back and folks
ran up front.  gotta love the girls.  crowd danced and sang and things
became much more animated.

my fav: the new stuff.  wow--it's been a while since i've heard new stuff
i've liked so much.  i totally agree w/the comments indigo lover
made--these are some really amazing new songs.

my one gripe: kim ritchie still doesn't know the words to closer to
fine.  even w/the lyrics she messed up.  it was  funny, actually.  and her
two band members, who both looked about 20, played some fierce tambourines
and sang every twentieth word or so.  you know, "mountain" "fine."  they
looked like they were having a blast and amy laughed at them at the end of
the song and went over and did a mock big finish playing to them.  ritchie
redeemed herself on finlandia.  i've heard her sing it w/them before and
it's given me chills both times. beautiful.  reminds me of the old days
when they'd finish w/mona lisas and mad hatters or simon & garfunckle covers.

preshow tidbits for the diehards: because of my friend, we had a private
tent w/dinner on the lawn before the show and i asked the caterer about the
girls.  she said they were incredibly nice (no surprise).  she also said
they played a long time--several hours--during sound check and that amy
doesn't drink--which i didn't know-- and they both eat luna bars.

conversation: you had to walk past the buses on the way out of the venue
and amy came out to sign things pretty quickly.  she was so cool.  she
spent time talking to folks and really listened.  i never cease to be
impressed by her laid-back mannerism--it defuses the hero-worship kind of
thing because she's approaches people in such an equal manner.  they had
said on stage that the new cd would be out in jan. i asked what their plans
were after that (trying to assuage my fear of a post contract
break-up).  she said they wouldn't have to decide for a few years since
they had this cd and then they were still listening to possibilities for
the rarities disc w/russell carter.  i asked if they'd made any decision
about going independent and she said no.  when i mentioned daemon, she
laughed and said no, that wasn't a possibility.  they'd go w/a bigger indy
label if they went that route.  she ended by saying "who knows if there'll
even be a sony around by then given all the changes in the industry."

i got a set list.  here's the line up:
1. become you 2. peace tonight 3. perfect world 4. free in you 5. yield 6.
power of two 7. devotion (woo hoo-a fav of mine) 8. least complicated 9.
dairy queen 10. come on home 11. shame on you 12. get out the map 13.
starkville 14. fill it up again 15. reunion (double woo-hoo)16. va woolf
17. tried to be true 18. closer to fine encore: 19.galileo 20. finlandia
*** on the written set list 17 had ??? and 19 was listed as all that we let
in (which wasn't played)

alrighty, i'm sure i could come up with more, but i'll quit here.

:) lisa
