play one more for my radio sweetheart


We just got back from the Arena at Harbor Yard, Bridgeport, CT, where we saw a triple bill - Amos Lee, Elvis Costello and Bob Dylan. So now my ears are ringing and my voice is all raspy (I'm a woohooer). No cameras allowed, so no pictures to post. (the one above is from another show - anybody know who that is?) Amos Lee was amazingly awesome, which means now I have to see him whenever he plays around here. Elvis did an incredible, somewhat politically charged set. Even though I'm a long time EC fan, this was the first I time saw him live, and consequently, the first time I ever heard my two favorite EC songs live (Veronica and What's So Funny), which was tres cool. He told some good stories too. My sister and sister-in-law are both totally obsessed with Bob Dylan, so I apologize in advance for this...I'm not a big Dylan guy. He was really good, but I don't know a lot of Dylan songs (except for the biggies) and even those were kind of hard to recognize. But he puts on a good show, and he sure does have lot of obsessive fans. Not that I'm knocking obsessive fans. I too am an obsessive fan of what I refer to as my "holy trinity" - Jeff, Ryan and Rhett.

My head is spinning and my legs are weak, goose step dancing, can't hear myself speak...



update: my husband just sent me this message...

Hey Elin-
I caught the Amos/Elvis/Bob show here in Maryland on Sept 28. I wanted to see Dylan while he was still alive so I could check that off my list but Elvis is my one true musical love. I see him every chance I get and will often travel to NY for a show even if he's just played in MD.
