New York! Very little comes close to the multiple stellar options we have on a daily basis. Berlin and New Orleans and probably Chicago are the only places I've been that consistently come close, but not quite.
This reminded me how great live music can be and just how spoiled I am. Everyone on the stage was phenomenal. Ted Poor is an amazing drummer. He extended his kit with a tambora. The whole set was amazing. If I wasn't so jetlagged I would have gladly stayed for the set, which they said would be different material.
It was an awesome "welcome home" show.
