DiGi--just wondering, were you standing next to me? People standing next to me were talking about U2. I'm sure there are several U2 fans in the DC area, though....

DiGi, I have Coldplay's Blue Room EP and I like it a lot. Five songs, my favourite is See You Soon; I think you can sample it at their official website http://www.coldplay.com .

I was actually upstairs, sitting down on the steps (left hand side if you are looking at the stage). But I did see a guy with a Slane shirt on standing on the floor. I think I met him at a Pete Yorn/JJ72 Show actually, because I have the same shirt and was wearing it that night.
Probably should have tried to meet up meegannie.

Foray, I have the Blue Room EP as well, I agree awesome. I got Brothers and Sisters 2 days ago, its sweet. I also have the Yellow, Shiver and Trouble Norwegian Live EP, all worth your money if you don't have them yet.

I agree - Starsailor was absolutely brilliant live!! Saw them play a small club in Ottawa here last weekend - woah, can that guy's voice carry!!!

I don't know about the show down in D.C., but the singer kept giggling like a 5 year old boy - it was f-ing hilarious!!!!!!

DiGi--I didn't see the guy in the Slane shirt, but I saw another guy in a U2 shirt, and then the guys next to me were talking about U2 concerts. I guess a lot of U2 fans have good taste. I was in the front row between the lead singer and the bass player. It was very unnerving (especially since he recognized my friend and me from Saturday night in Philly), but it was definitely a great experience.


ladywithspinninghead--They had some sound problems in DC, so James Walsh was trying to occupy time by singing the Postman Pat song and telling a joke. So there was much giggling. I loved it. The best part was when someone requested "The Way Young Lovers Do" and James Stelfox (the bass player) said, "Well, tonight they don't!"

Did this lead to his comment about familiar faces? hmmm

I think so because then he smiled at me and my friend (we'd been in the front row in Philly too and met them after the show). We got a lot of eye contact during the evening which made me even more nervous. Everytime he'd look at me, I'd look down, but that was probably good because he's shy too, and it's probably rare to see people in the front row who are scared to look at him. Especially since the people on both sides of us were being obnoxious.

What did you think of the song "Born Again"? I think that song is incredible. I can't believe it's only a b-side.

The one song I did not know. I thought It was awesome. I did not know what it was when they played it,I just have the album and no b-sides. One of my favorites of the night though, without question. I need to get that song and some bootleg shows and everything else they have produced.

Yay!!! Glad to see you're a convert. "Born Again" is a b-side to "Poor Misguided Fool." The single is going to be released March 18th in the UK, but I'm not sure if it'll be released in the US or not. (I'm still trying to find the "Good Souls" single!) You can order it as an import from Amazon, but it's a bit pricey for a single. Still, I'll probably buy it. CDNow also has it available for pre-order for $10.99 with an expected release date of March 26th. So that could be the date it's being released in the US if they chose it as their next US single.

As for bootlegs, if you have mirc, there are some people on #mp3uk and #mp3passion who have some shows from the UK. I don't have a cd burner and am forced rely on the kindness of friends, otherwise I would burn some for you.

I was just looking on Amazon.co.uk and it looks cheaper to order the singles from them, Including shipping it is only $10.42 US dollars for Poor Misguided Fool.

You can use www.xe.com/ucc/ to do the currency conversion.

I have ordered stuff from Amazon.co.uk before and its great.

Thanks for the amazon.co.uk info--I didn't even think about ordering through them.

Have any of you heard James Walsh's (the lead singer of Starsailor) cover of "Don't Stop Movin'" by S Club 7? It's so good! I swear, that voice can make any song listenable. (It's up there with Travis's cover of "Baby One More Time").

I have to agree with Foxxern here--I really can't stand Starsailor. The songs are highly unoriginal and simply none too entertaining. I think it's another case of the British press kissing the ass of every new attempt to rip-off The Bends.

Is this possible?!

A quick straw poll of people at work found Starsailor to be annoying, pathetic, whining and downright reprehensible. They are bloody awful. I mean, listen to the lyrics... they are cringeworthy! Ugh.

And they are from Wigan. Need I say more?!
