trackback

110 minutes of magnificent music by my watch.

The band showed some first-night raggedness in some spots & was absolutely brilliant in many others. Normally I could give you more details but I didn’t have the acuity to keep track; considering the state of my health a week ago I was damn lucky just to be there at all.

This was my 4th trip to BBK’s & I have NEVER seen it that packed, almost unpleasantly so. We got there about 20 minutes before showtime & it was SRO, there was not a table to be had. Ian can still pack a club on a Monday night; I like that.

As always Ian more than amply repays any effort it takes to get to a show. Don’t miss this tour!

Here’s yer complete and accurate setlist (this time I took notes):

Once Bitten
American Spy
Twisted Steel
Wish I Was Your Mother
Knees of My Heart
Wash Us Away
Irene Wilde
Truth Whole Truth Nothing But The Truth
23A Swanhill
Rollerball
Standing In My Light
