Just got in from a Counting Crows, Spearhead, and Augustana concert. Wild to say the least. They had no set sequence and anyone came on and off as they wanted. It was awesome.
Sorry I missed the concert, looked like a good set list.

BICYCLE BILL IS NO LONGER A (BUFFETT) VIRGIN!!!!

I saw my first JB concert last night at Alpine Valley. I could have picked a better day/night for it ... it was very cool (the high yesterday only got up to around 65º), overcast, and there was a steady, strong wind from the north all day.

I met CaptP, Candyman/Mrs. Candyman, Glorfindel7, WinoYouKnow, RagtopW/Santa, and a few others whose handles I can't recall in East Troy Saturday around noon and caravaned in to the parking lot with them. We were able to all park together (about eight or nine vehicles), so we set up the tailgate and we made the best of a less-then-spectacular situation. A couple of other BNers dropped by (TikiBar, for one) and for the most part a good time was had by all, despite the non-cooperative weather.

One observation: after seeing some of the contraptions rigged up to power blenders for the frozen concoctions of choice (and yes, people were still consuming those even with the temperature more conducive to hot chocolate than cold boat drinks), including one using a full-length gas-powered weed-whacker, I am convinced that if the government were really serious about figuring out some way to resolve the economic mess, or settle the Iraq crisis, or even figure out some way to deal with the energy crisis, all they would need to do would be to issue a challenge to a couple-dozen Parrotheads. They'd start by thinking outside the box and have something worked out by Christmas at the latest.

Back to the concert. I got lucky and found someone tailgating near us who was willing to sell a single ticket under the pavilion for less than face; I ponied up the cash and it turned out to be worth every nickel. By the time Jimmy and the band took the stage the temp had dropped at least 5º and there was a definite mist, if not an outright rain, in the air, which continued throughout the concert. I didn't see anybody leaving, though..... although Jimmie did make several comments about the weather (such as the beachballs in danger of becoming snowballs), and did come back out onstage after "recess" wearing a hoodie.

The concert was great!! What else can I say? Even the much-discussed "cover songs" (and he did all three; BEG, Submarine, and Southern Cross) worked with the crowd; and the images that they threw up on the huge side-screens during these (and other songs) were beautiful and appropriate. I was pleasantly surprised when he threw in "Gypsies in the Palace", and the medley of "Something to Drink About/WDWGDAS" worked well too.

The concession prices there were definitely an eye-opener: $4.50 for a big pretzel? $5.00 for a hotdog? $8.00 for a silo of Bud? $10.00 and up for a boat drink?? Hey LiveNation; let's leave the piracy to the Somalis, OK?

My one and only complaint: Alpine needs to put some restrooms/porta-a-potties a little closer to the pavilion than 3/4-way up the hill. Maybe along the fence below the party decks, and in the grassy area to the left of section 101/201.

Closing observations? In the long run, I don't feel I was cheated out of a thing. This may have been my first concert seeing Jimmy, but (Lord willing), it isn't going to be the last.

She sure enough did!! I thought "Janice is here??" But then I noticed how she was dressed, and realized it was another time, another place! :D

Tina, Nadirah, Peter, Ilo, Glenn Worf, Mr Utley, and John all had jackets on... Tina, Nadirah, and John all had scarves on... and like Molly said, after the break, Jimmy had a hoodie on... there was something very wrong with that picture! [smilie=shake.gif] [smilie=shake.gif]

Oh, and I wouldn't have seen any of it if it weren't for a call from Migration Michelle.

Michelle ~ thank you. I truly appreciate it. :D

I can live with endearing - if that's what you call not being able to focus just right at that time . . .
