Ah man, Saturday I was totally bummed out!! Bobby was playing in Syracuse, just 3 blocks from where I was working until well after the show let out. What is a fan to do? Fucking drive to Albany the next day, and catch the greatest sound on the East Coast. I was running up the stairs to the balcony as the long, winding Truckin' welcomed us all to an electric Sunday night. Highlights include the Other One, which everyone freaked out over. There's nothing like 3000 people sharing the same passion - "For the heat come round and busted me for smilin' on a cloudy day!" It was truly magical. The Eleven was a huge surprise, and we all thought they were gonna bust into Wharf Rat or Dark Star, but the show isn't up to us. In the end, what a great vibe coming out of the Palace on a frigid, March evening. Thanks to the Palace staff for being friendly inside, and thanks to Ratdog for making it back to our side of the Mississippi. Truly, thank you for a great night.
