Reply to "Washington...YAY"

Well,my friend and I stood out in the freezing cold for over 2 hours to ensure we were front row,and it was DEFINATELY worth it.Neil was in great voice and seemed much more relaxed and personable than last July.And it was cool that he changed up the set list a bit for those of us who attended both shows.I loved,LOVED that he did Sweet Dreams as well.I also didn't miss Lisa Germano at all..to me she was a bit too intrusive last time around.
Now,having said that..all was not perfect.First off,the opening act,Rhett Miller.I hate to say it..but I just wasn't impressed.Yes,he had a decent stage presence..but every song he played sounded pretty much the same.And thrashing around does not make you a good singer/songwriter..to me it was like he was trying to draw attention away from the fact that he(as my friend pointed out) basically only played 3 chords.Ed Harcourt was a MILLION times better..IMHO.
Second,someone else mentioned the guy that threw his Cd's onstage.Well,it just so happened he shoved his way right inbetween my friend and I to do so.I realise it's a concert and you're going to get shoved and jostled a bit at times...fine,I accept that.What I really have a hard time dealing with is someone pushing me out of the way..yelling straight in my ear,and refusing to budge until Neil acknowleged him.To me that was just plain rude.He very well might be a nice and talented guy..but I felt that was pushing it a bit.
But in the end Neil's music overshadowed everything else,and I thank him for coming back to DC..and I hope I'm still in the States when the Finn Bros tour here again.
