Then I also hope I'm able to get a ticket - any ticket, really. I MUST SEE BRUCE.
I hope he ends up in the "boring west" as well, namely SLC.

I've been listening to the new album a lot the last few days, and I've decided that I really like the songs, 'Girls in their Summer Clothes' and 'Magic'.

i kind of can't argue with that.

yet, i'm hoping this will win him over. he does prefer U2 to Bruce, though REM to all three, so that's enough for me. i did take him to Vertigo DC1 and we were way up in the nosebleeds and he enjoyed it, and he wasn't scared off either, which was good -- we'd been dating only 2 months, and the fact that i started jumping up and down and did my COBL shed-a-tear-of-joy routine and he still didn't dump me the next day made me know that he was a keeper.

in fact, we're making "our" Christmas Card list right now.

My only issue with Bruce as a singer is that he's sounded too southern on his past couple albums. I like the "Livin' in the Future" classic Bruce vocals as opposed to the "Radio Nowhere" overly-pronounced folksy-ish vocals he's had lately (especially on "The Rising" album).

Anyone who'd stick with me after seeing me nerd out to U2 would definitely be a keeper.

Have fun!

Come on up FER the risin'!

When that album came out and Bruce was on one of the late-night talk shows, my then-boyfriend remarked, "Has Bruce sold out? Is he singing 'Come on up for Verizon????'"

I agree. Just cuz U made an album called Nebraska doesn't mean U have 2 sing like U're from there. U're from JERSEY!

singing wise I prefer Bruce's voice on the Seeger sessions album as far as his recent albums go, I may be alone in this...I don't know.. but it's got that rough, honest, not-over-polished-nor-produced sound,
then again I'm also a big fan of Tom Waits

we got "growin' up"

for me the highlight was, perhaps not so weirdly, "no surrender." all i could think about was being 7 or 8 yeas old and listening to that song on some kind of Fisher Price tape recorder and thinking it was so thrilling, so amazing, so powerful, and not realizing the incredible message attached -- "we learned more from a three minute record, baby, than we ever learned in school."

wow. just, you know, wow.

other highlights were the war horses which are still amazing -- "promised land" "badlands" and the thrill of "dancing in the dark" -- and the songs on the new album that are great live -- "long walk home" and the gorgeous "girls in their summer clothes."

complaints are few and far between. i don't think i ever want to be behind the stage again, though it wasn't that bad, and it was a bit short for a Bruce show, clocking in at 2:15, maybe.

great concert. i'm thinking about lurking around the Verizon Center tomorrow evening to see if maybe, just maybe, someone has an extra GA ticket pour moi.

Sounds bitchin'! The image of you as a boy listening to Bruce on a child's tape player is brilliant.


But the most important thing is: Did Memphis like it?

Memphis and i will be there!

we're going to grab drinks at the Irish Channel and then have some quick Chinese at my favorite hole-in-the-wall on 6th Street just around from the Verizon Center with some friends of ours coming down from Philly for the show.



(Memphis is not a big Bruce fan, but he's game -- here's hoping it goes well)


I was at the Channel from about 4:30-6:30. WHY DIDN'T I CHECK THE BLUE CRACK? I had no idea you were there.

Amazing show!
*Bruce's voice is really sounding great. Amazing growls and falsettos
*I NEVER thought I'd hear Growing Up live! Wow!
*She's the One will never ever disappoint
*loved the printing of the American Land lyrics as well--especially since they were so apropos
*giggled madly at the Batman style "E ST BAND!" graphics as Bruce was doing his "history making booty shaking earthquaking" bit. Very fun. l
*loved Bruce referring to DC as "the City of Magic" LOL. He's not kidding.
*speaking of, Magic is by far my favorite song on the new one and it sounded great! It's so sly and soft and angry.....
*was braced a bit for some boos when he did his brief PSA on rendition/civil liberties etc but all I hear was cheers.

we were over in the corner to the left of the bar with some very drunk friends in Redskins jerseys.

i was weirdly on the lookout for you, not that i really know what you look like, though i think i saw a picture once. we left the Channel around 6:40 to go grab a very quick bite for dinner.

i've been singing "badlands" to myself all day.

oh, and the other thrill, i thought, was "tunnel of love." never thought i'd hear that one live (though it might be my favorite bruce album).

i wish i were going tonight, but i can't justify the ticket price a GA would be particularly now that my medical bills have started to come fast and furious, and the fact that he's touring next year (right? right?) and there's a potential U2 tour coming up soon to consider.

Glad you loved the show!
