generally what I wrote the night I came home from the concert.
opening act: the music was nice, the guy singing was a bit scary...had
some interesting chit-chat with the audience. So overall, not bad, but nothing I could really get into. :)
And then the RUFUS came! With others. Of course, Rufus was as...himself as
ever. The thing he said I remember the most was at the end though (played two encores), when he talked about how when he was a kid his favorite toy was his apron, and he'd wear it and...yeah, have I said too much? Aprons, eh? I can imagine, how frightening! Rufus wore a white blouse and some nice pants which looked familiar, but I can't really remember from where.
He played lots of stuff! About an hour and 45 minutes (good thing so I could catch my bus!) and the whole place was great, really. No annoying people! And at least it was a nice mix of people...or at least older than what I'm used to, which is very nice. So I was listening to
my recording in the bus, it's very nice to...listen back. Because I forget so much of what actually happens during the concert. At some points I closed my eyes and then it felt nicer, but then it's stupid too, because it's...a concert! I should be watching, right? And in a way, I don't have to, the
atmosphere of live music is what I really like, and seeing the people playing is nice too. My seats were alright (balcony row E seat 39), as in I could see the stage fine, although I was angled in such a way that I would be looking more at the back of Rufus's head when he was playing piano. :)
So, I suppose that's it! I bought some t-shirts before the show four of em...one for
me and three of my friends, so that's $80 down the drain. $20 a shirt isn't so bad for concert stuff though, although they're a one-size-fits-most women's shirt type deal. It fits me, although not in such a flattering way. Which is why I avoid girly clothes, *cough*.
sound clips are in streaming realaudio, so you'll need realplayer
to listen to em. Click
on the a to hear the song and the b
to hear what Rufus said BEFORE the song (that kind of makes sense,
right? ...) and if you want to download the songs in realaudio go here.
The quality sucks, I know, but try to enjoy anyway. :)
