Went to a They Might be Giants concert last night at the “U of R” last night… and they rocked the house as usual. TMBG always holds a special place in my heart. I’ve meet great friends at concerts; Flood was the first alternative album I bought; and New York City off of Factory Show Room is one of my favorite songs of all time. Plus it was the first live show I’d been to in a while. The set list included:

  • James K. Polk
  • You’re not the boss of me now (the theme from Malcolm in the Middle)
  • Edith Head
  • Spider
  • Fingertips
  • The Guitar
  • Why does the sun shine
  • Robot Parade
  • She’s actual size
  • Birdhouse in my Soul
  • Dr Worm
  • Anna Ng
  • Partical Man
  • Istambul
  • and of course New York City

All and all absolutely brilliant. There were a few others that I missed. My friends Aaron and Maria were up for the happy goodness. A lot of bouncing up and down was had by all.

Actually this is the weekend of concerts. Tomorrow I head for Geneva, NY to take in Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. I’ve had the chance to meet a few of the members of the band, Victor and FutureMan. Not only are they great musicians, but they’re great people as well. In fact we just had Vic on Kodak.com for a chat about his bass and Nature Camp. Photographer Greg Kessler did an amazing photo essay of the camp. They were both on-line to share photos and tell stories from the camp and the road. This was the first of these events that I produced end to end. Which was a learning experience and a half.

One of the things I want to do with this site is use it both as a testing and sounding ground for some of the communal idea’s that I’ve been working on. Hopefully there will be more to say about that in the days and weeks to come…
