well, the first two bands were sub par, but brian jonestown massacre - let by anton newcomb - were great. the highlight of the show for me was the antics. i'll say it - anton is crazy - wacky, mentally disturbed - but we love him for it. the best part was Joel. Joel plays tamborine and is the center of all attention - center of the stage where normally the lead singer would be. joel has a crazy 60's beard and a personality and facial expression that rivals any studio actor. when anton was going off on the band and the roadies (did I say crazy?) Joel was goofing for the audience with the best expressions. he even cut his hands on the tamborine and bled for us. looking forward to seeing them in a month or so here in puddletown.
the trip otherwise was great. stayed with tige and allie again - we're seeing them way too much. stayed in pacifica and just hung and shopped, ate and drank all weekend. could you ask for more? we even drove over the golden gate in a convertable - way cool.
so, i'm back in the real world and now have to plan for the brettenium. oops, am i to divulge that? hmmmmmmmm. more later.
