Hi, Garrison- Just wanted to
February 10, 2004 |
Just wanted to say that it was a treat to finally see you in Hot Springs, Arkansas. My friends and I had cheap seats in the nosebleed section, but we had a great edge-on view of the stage, and for a geek like me, the broadcast and webcast gear. We thought it was cool that you had a large analog clock at your feet instead of a digital one. It's a geek thing. We liked your shoes, too!
What we really liked was that the sound wasn't too loud, and that you used the
phrase 'wardrobe malfunction' in the course of the show, winning me a bet (dinner at a favorite Asian Fusion restaurant in Little Rock).
We do hope that you'll come back again soon!
I've always wondered what the show looks like from up there and what people notice. What I noticed was the big mood the crowd was in and how they responded to the music. Sam Bush is a whale of a player and singer, and Billie Joe Shaver too, and the audience loved them both. And I noticed how, when somebody started talking in a loud voice about fifteen rows back, the people around him all ganged up to shush him. And I thought that the Arena staff was magnificent. And I now regret that I didn't go to the racetrack on Sunday. So I guess we'll come back during racing season.
