the rainy town of Portland's show at the Wonder Ballroom was the best of the tour on the Portastatic side anyway, crowd was still filing in when we started but were quiet and appreciative the whole set. nice-sounding reverb in the room.
had a raging late night party at some friends' house after the show with the Scots in attendance. Dave from Norfolk & Western did a terrible Jimi Hendrix impersonation and lampooned Bono. i woke up groggy and feeling like i had somehow lost an argument in which my position was that nobody makes worse records than Sting. but i did win the argument that if you were making The River into one album you would not take off "Sherry Darling" first.
here was our set:
Valentine's Day (springsteen) -- kenny from C.O. joined us on this one
Center of the World
Autumn Got Dark
Sweetness and Light
Skinny Glasses Girl (by request!)
When Love Breaks Down (p.sprout)
