Hey, anonypooh, I'm back from the concert, and here's a mini report:
Jordan has a longish beard, Eric is clean-shaven and using a gel in his hair (a slightly pompadour look - looks better than it sounds), and Adam is scruffy and without glasses. I was there with aliste and hobbitgrrl. We got good seats, and I took 10 gazillion photos, so you know I was a happy camper. They started with a song I didn't know (the word "round" appeared a lot, and it ended in a repetitive sort of round) and sequed into "Everything Under the Sun", I believe. I didn't get a set list, but took a pic of one, and you know it will probably get posted. Anyway, I thought that first song was a bit slow for a start, and it felt a bit "off", but soon got into stride, and the guys seemed to be in good form: a few smiles at one another, Eric really giving it his all, Adam doing good banter in-between, and Jordan getting a lot of horn and banjo time, especially banjo. The cutest moments involved a little girl of about 6 to 8 years of age, near the front. Adam went into a spiel about how the band spends so much time together, and they rarely get any privacy - except at one specific time. Masturbation. And that's what the next song is about, he said - and then turned politely to the little girl and said "It means "chewing"". *ggl* And launched into "Let Me Die With My Trumpet In My Hand" - *L*! Then when they did the song with the glockenspiel, Adam saw that the little girl recognized the toy instrument and was watching intently, so it turned it sideways and showed it to her. He had it on a chair seat and was down at her level only a few feet away. It was cute to watch. *G* And after the show, Eric was off to one side, going through a little goody bag that I think the girl's mom gave him: little bags of chips and such, a SpongeBob Squarepants figure, and so on. He looked like a little boy going through it. They also recorded the show and sold CD's of it a half hour later. You're right, pooh - they did that last time, but I didn't stay long enough. This time I did and got one! They also sold songbooks, and those were hot items. And the girl who does their website was there; she moved from Long Island 14 months ago, and still considers herself a New Yorker. There were also 2 guys from Wisconsin, and a girl from elsewhere in Illinois, to name a few. Also, I asked Jordan if he'd heard "Illinoise" by Sufjan Stevens and he said that he had, and it was brilliant - and had lots of trumpet and banjo. I said that's why I'd asked - the trumpet parts reminded me of him. So, I did get "horny" with Jordan. *G*
Enough! I won't get to the photos until this weekend, but I know I have some good ones. YAY CORO!!!!!!!
