I am so glad I made it and I got the standing spot up front. I could have sat in the “other front row”, which was actually a good spot since Steven was over there so Tony and Briggan were facing that way. Still, I preferred to be able to move a little.
They said this was their first time playing together in over a year. I missed the last time they played at The Stone, but I thought they were together, I guess not.
It was as awesome as usual. I also found out the reason Steven talks so much in between songs is to get the blood back in his lips. That’s why a lot of trumpet players sing. I had actually been wondering that for a while, why so many trumpet players sing, and now I know.
Steven also mentioned they are doing a show with The Bad Plus in Paris. Can you imagine??!!! We need that here! Actually, I want a triple bill, Ceramic Dog, SexMob, and The Bad Plus, all in one night. That would be awesome! I haven’t looked at the date for this Paris gig yet, but I did fantasize about using my freq flier miles and rushing out there for a couple of days to see it. I bet it’s when I’ll be in Germany possibly. But, I’m pretty booked that trip and I couldn’t swing it, so that’s really why I’m not looking. I don’t want to be tempted.
