Doves In Chicago!!!!

OK. So as you all know I was the huuge Doves fan here that got crapped on by David Letterman and the fookin CBS Orchestra. MY show. MY hometown-the supposed opening City of their tour got kidnapped ...SO I was sad. But I still had ElBOW. Until they canceled their tour also. HOLY FLIRKING SHNIT.

My motto in life being "If you can't beat em..Go see em in Chicago..." I made Plan B. With Hallelujahs MUCH APPRECIATED hospitality, I was off to Chitown and its Oysterfest Friday morning to See...THE DOVES.

So fast forward to Saturday....Many random bands play including the Young Dubliners which was a fun show. ...Sister hazel which was also alright even though I don't know too much of their stuff they are very nice, cool guys.

9:00 Doves time finally--weather is now beautiful -we're plastered to the front rail(having waited there all day since 3) and the crowd is drunk and chanting DOVES DOVES DOVES .....THe show ROCKED!! having seen them earlier in June i pretty much knew the setlist--OPened with Pounding of course...AWESOME. During the set, you have Jimi who plays every instrument, including drums whilst singing...Bass and acoustic, guitar....Super fun! And the droomer!! SoOOO energetic! and SMILES ear to ear the whole time!!

Many technical problems throughout the show, did not deter my fun-having, Jimi was another story..... Things were going well until he broke a string in mid song. RIPS his cord from guitar and someone quickly brings him another. Which he proceeds to break another string off of on the first strum. Not a happy camper, but kept on going. at the end of the song, he yells(in his sexy British accent ) "That was fuckin atrocious but thank you." He was NOT smiling.

a couple songs later, Guitarist Jez randomly falls on the ground. Did he slip? Trip? noone really knows. All of a sudden We see him Arse over tea kettle on the ground. I though he was pulling some sort of rock-out ont he floor act, but no. He had, in fact, fallen. The difference was, he couldn't stop LAUGHING at himself. SOOOo cute. Not mad like Jimi. WHich was also very cute in its own right, however.....

Then to top the night off....During the last and most ROCKING song in the world, (Spaceface) the ENTIRE "stage Adam" side of Speakers completly blows out. Jimi almost walked off the stage. He'd had it. I wonder how many guys got fired Sunday Morning...."nothing but the best for the Oyster Fest"(Gina's comment on the sucky-ass Oysterfest sound crew)

WEll they wrapped it up and ran for the hills..Whilst we waited diligently for them to come sign our CD's and take some photos...WHich was not looking very likely due to the events that had just occured... Finally Jimi slinks through the shadows behind a fence and we all yell for him but he doesn't even stop....AAACCK! I've driven SOO far!!! I so wanted to meet em!!! *coughagaincough*

So one brave girl just RUNS after him....and brings back Andy-the happy droomer!!! Yay! He's my favorite!! (Besides, well, Jimi and Jez...) I guess Jimi was too crabby.....So what do I do but tell Andy he's a great drummer (when will I Learn??) but at least I had the chance to explain myself and talk to him a little. So sweet. Awesome accent' He signs my CD--"To Tiffany. Thanks for calling me great! -XX- Andy" and we get some photos...AWESOME!!!

The moral of this story???

PLEASE go see this band if they are in yer area...One of the BEST live shows i've ever seen. Second only to U2 on performing in MY book, I Highly recommend this show, Even if you've not seen them or even heard any of their stuf. I didn't even know who they were and I got hooked during the live show. So hooked I drove 7 hours all by meself just to do it all again.....And I would do it AGAIN...don't miss em.

Oooh!! That's sounds so awesome!! I am kinda weird, but I like it when things 'happen' at gigs... good or bad... makes your show unique.

Anway... New Doves fan here!! Going to see them in October!!

They open with "The Pounding".... My faaaaaaavourite.

Oh, yeah. It was HOT.

Jimi: GRRRRRRRRRRR *breaks guitar string*

Me and Tiff:

Thank you for posting that splendiferous review of the show, my dear Tiffany. I think she pretty much covered everything....cept how we stole a giant Guinness Oysterfest banner...but yeah we don't need to talk about that. We also got what we originally thought were setlists, but were actually lyrics to There Goes the Fear and Words that Jimi had taped down so he wouldn't forget em . Also, someone who was clearly either drunk or mentally challenged left a doves poster sitting on the sidewalk. It is now mine.

I think that aboot covers it. YAY DOVES!!!

Saw Doves last night, really good show, highly recommended

Oh, and Jimi was in a much better mood in Montreal; there were no technical glitch and he got people from the crowd on stage at the end of the show, turned it into one big party, it was awesome!
