Muuuch smoother, faster show. Palmcorder again, I'm pretty fixed you'll hear it in LA and it was even better tonight (but you guys won't have JV too bad so sad). Similar setlist (heavy on sunset tree/get lonely) but really a whole different show.

Played Blues in Dallas, the one and only AHWT song of the two nights as an encore, JD put down his guitar stepped away from the mic and sang it completely unaccompanied and acoustic to a silent crowd. I got a little misty.

One more thing, I also continued my 3-show streak of calling out "HI PETER!" to Peter Hughes, one time, at appropriate and silent song breaks. Each time he says hi back. It's my thing I do that I pretend matters. I also said Hi John to JV tonight and JD goes "say hi back to the lady" and he said hi back and I was tickled.

AND this is the board where I pretend anyone cares.

The end. smooch.

I like this thread, and gosh darnit I like everyone that posted in it.

Will there be a 3rd night of fun or did they only play 2 nights?

I assume you got at least one "Recognition Scene" and one "Against Pollution", correct? If not, that sucks...
