Yep, that was me.
>The show got started after 10P with the Jon Ireland Band/Duo/Group. Jon has opened for Todd at TTR before. He is a pleasant opener--melodic and not overpowering. Todd did a special falsetto number with Jon.
>Todd played battery-charged acoustic with a number of tunes I did not recognize. Notable tunes--Clean Water, Bullet in Your Hand, the Waterboys' Fisherman Blues (recently read a good quote about the album that song is one), the Replacement's Waitress in the Sky (imagine if anyone in the plane knew you were Paul Westerberg), and the first-set-ending Radiohead standard--Fake Plastic Trees (is that redundant?). Scott of Smartbomb, Eric __, and Dave Strickland--accordion Dave were the band (collectively known as quitter UK too).
He said Chuck (Andrada) was in Virginia Beach, otherwise it would have been all of them. He also let on there's a new Quitter U.K. date - May 17th at Iota.
>I noticed that a bunch of folks left before Todd went on stage--I guess they like the drinks and food at TTR (food, btw is most excellent and the bar staff first-class). We had to leave at midnight-ish when the first set ended in order to make the 2-hour drive home to the sitter and sporks.
But you missed much more entertainment. I think my favorite part was when he said we had a choice between "Sunblock" and "Parking Lot" (weighing in at 200 pounds). When he went with "Sunblock", someone called out "Gangsta" (original version of Sunblock), and a number of people called out the old lyrics througout the song. Todd looked like he was having a hard time keeping a straight face. My favorite song was "Lisa Says" (the Velvet Underground classic), which I haven't heard in years. Eric was missed for the harmonies he does during the chorus, but the crowd did its part.
