Just got home from the show.
Sure was fun.
But I think I drank too much soda.
And now I can't sleep.
Either that or I'm a big
That's pretty bad.
O well, at least I'm not the only one who was at the show who's online right now : giggle : : wink : Sorry : hug :
Better head to bed.
More later.

Let's go!
Discotheque!
Boomcha! Boomcha!

The show was awesome!
and to all the effort that was put into it.
Everything looked (band costumes, yellow arch, lemon, olive?, video show) and sounded great.

For those of you, who are expecting to see some pics.
Sorry, I don't have any.
But there were camera's around.
So who knows, what'll show up online somewhere.

With the help from the setlists from the Mexico City Pop Mart tour, I'd say this is what was played:

Mofo, I Will Follow, Gone, Even Better Than The Real Thing, Last Night On Earth, Until The End Of The World, New Year's Day, Pride, I Still Haven't Found, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bullet the Blue Sky, Please, Where the Streets Have No Name, Discotheque, If You Wear That Velvet Dress, Mysterious Ways

A few Popmart DVD's were also thrown into the crowd by the band.
Really

I always love to dance along to the music.
Yesterday, apparently much to the annoyance of a male-female couple that were standing behind me.
As I was told to "watch my arms" by the guy.

Yeah, I tend to fling them around a lot, while I'm dancing.
God only knows, how many others out there think I'm a dancing lunatic.
LOL
Perhaps it might be wise to tone it down a bit next time.
Not that it would have mattered if I had danced any differently I think, because whatever I would have done, would probably have pissed them off.
Well, the woman ended up emptying her beer bottle over me.
What a waste! She'd have been better off drinking it. Perhaps she would have had more fun then. Or maybe she already had too much to drink.
I'm like :WTF!
"Oops, sorry! That's what you get for bumping into me."
Ooooh please :roll of the eyes:, what a bunch of CRAP!
It was plain obvious she did it on purpose.
I didn't even touch her.
But like I'm stupid alright.
Of course her intention was to get me to move somewhere else.
Which I guess was just too hard to asked in a normal manner.
Not like doing that, got it accomplished.
Oh boy, what's not to love about the childish behaviour of adults on a night out.

Although after a while, my friend and I moved to the bar for drinks and sat down for a bit.
I sure didn't mind having more room around me.
Well, low and behold, another girl shows up at the bar, who got drinks poored over her as well.
I bet you anything : it was the same person.

On a totally other note, the evening was also kinda bittersweet.
I always go to the Zoo-shows with one of my best friends here.
And this might very well have been her last.
Because she's moving back home some time in the next couple of months.
Not entirely clear when.
But it just won't be the same without her.

On our drive home, we were talking about the show and the songs that were played for a bit and we both concluded that the highlight was one of the quieter moments of the night : Sunday, Bloody Sunday, which was beautifully played and sung.
It almost had her in tears.

Anyway, I was thinking of perhaps buying her one of the Zoo-shirts as a going away present and a reminder of the fun times we've had together, while she was here in Cali.

It was good to see you, Lori!
And I liked your shirt.
What was the site to buy them from again?

Did you make it out to the show, mirrorballin?

Hey Miri - As always it was good seeing you. I had no idea some idiot spilled their beverage on you! Some people . . . I didn't know that Wendy was moving away. You can always go to a show with me!

I swear that I checked this forum sometime in the past week - how could I have missed chatting with all of you? I think I must have been too crazy busy. Things have slowed down to a more manageable pace.

I like my new shirt too It was fun being a shirt model!

I got it from:

http://www.cafepress.com/zoostation/

Yes, the show was awesome! Nice job on the drumming Skott!!!

Aww, Mike your singing was SO good. I remember you telling me once that you couldn't sing. Now, I know differently . . . please sing some more!

The band was awesome. I must say the singer is great-I especially loved the wondering amongst the crowd-ala- !

Not sure if the mirrorball motife came thru in my costume tho. I was the verrrry tall girl with the verrrry big sparkly hair. I didn't purchase a wig since I have naturally curly hair and it's easy to make it SUPER big so I emptied a can of sparkles into it.

So sorry to hear you had drama. I noticed the crowd got a little rowdy as the night progressed which is why I hung towards the back-the one perk to being in platform hooker boots: always a good view of the stage

I am so down to see Zoo Station again!

What a weekend it has been!
I went to another party on Sunday evening where a Dutch DJ was playing.
(Hahaha, you'd think I'm really nationalistic)
I feel like I'm still recovering....

Either get a kick out of getting into arguments.
Just get in a bad mood when they have had too much to drink.
Or perhaps this was the female's way of trying to make an impression on her guy.

Kinda unforeseen circumstances
I'm moving as well, by the way.
But within the Bay Area.

Glad to hear things have slowed down.
Being too crazy busy for too long ain't good for you.

There's something to be said about being humble and modest.

It's really too bad that you were sick, when Zoostation played at Slim's, Lori.
They performed "Numb" that night.

Who knows, maybe Van Diemens Land next?

Now I think about it, I've seen every bandmember sing a song (Adamesque does an excellent Party Girl ) except one.
Perhaps it's time for some "Dirty Old Town".

Woohoo!
I'm happy to hear you had a good time.
I feel bad now though for not paying more attention to my surroundings and missing the opportunity to say "hello" to you in person.
Hopefully next time.

Yeah, thanks for sharing!
Great pics.
The person that took them must have been standing pretty close to the stage.

Oh, and I hope you know I was teasing when I posted this :

Uh....

Let's just say that sometimes it's a good thing that not all pics that are taken and stored on hard drives end up online!
LOL
