And in other news: CoRo!!!
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!!!!!!!

omg that was super squeeesome!!!!!! The first song is a newbie "Rounded" ...awwww so cute with Adam and the lickle girlie. I cant believe they recorded and sold it AGAIN!!! Chicago is sooo lucky - must be great acoustics! I want one!! - maybe I can ask Lisa to get one for me at New York ;) Yay for kiddie Eric and Getting Horny with Jordan. So did Adam stay out and chat with folks after too?
Aww what's with the smiles at each other - because they knew it was going fabbylous?! cooool! Tsk Adam and his masterbating AGAIN - lol. But it's a GUY does their website ... unless you mean Dana - who does the Union Maid one? Love to shake her hand!!

eeee - gazillion photos!!!

You should look out on the board - no-one posted about Chicago last time and folks are gasping for news! You could pretty much cut and paste this in there and be a hero!!

Even if its just the setlist.

I haven't even looked there yet - been dead busy this morning

THANK YOU!!!!!! THANK YOU!!! xxxxx

YES! Isn't that col? And I'll copy it for you... if you're patient. Let's see... Jordan did the usual gathering of the money for merchandise, but we all had to stay and wait for the CD's... 20 minutes? And Eric ended up coming in and hanging around the back of the room with folks, and, yes, Adam came in shortly after, sat at a chair or sofa near the merch table and was talking with somebody. *S*

Ummm... did she maybe "design" the website? Maybe he said that.

Go ahead and post the review on there if there's still nothing - although I'm sure there will be. *G*

You know you're so welcome!!! ((((((((hugs)))))))) Thank YOU for introducing me to these guys!

*L*! Only insofar as to look at me, think "nope, not one of the cute groupies" and just be polite. *L*! Except he was genuinely enthusiastic about Sufjan Stevens (sorry for the typo above).

*L*! Oh, that would be incredible!!! Write to them - seriously.

Say, are you familiar with their site? And with the Union Maid archives? Speaking of covers, they list all the covers they've done, and I did find a Karma Chameleon in the archives. I'll try to remember to forward the info.
