The show last night rocked!!

Love Of Our Lives
Fill It Up Again
Power of Two
Three Hits (It always pleases me when this makes the setlist. It's one of the first three songs that I ever heard by IG and always tugs at my heart strings for that reason.)
Get Out The Map
Driver Education
What Are You Like
Fleet Of Hope
Shame On You
Prince of Darkness (Can we say holy crow?! I nearly fell out of my seat. Had I have been standing I may have needed to sit down...And they sounded amazing...)
Second Time Around
Digging For Your Dreams (Apparently Julie has a drum track that she plays along with this song. I did not enjoy this rendition. I would have rather them have truly played it acoustic.)
Become You
Hammer and a Nail (Yay!)
Ghost of the Gang
Land of Canaan (Double Yay!!)
Closer to Fine (w/Shawn Mullins)

Kid Fears (w/Shawn Mullins) (Triple Yay!!!)

My oh so quick thoughts:

Amy was all smiles!! She looked like she was having a good time and mentioned that she had had a nice birthday. Apparently Emily and crew had been hanging out in Albany over Easter weekend.

At one point Amy was putting on her mandolin and she strummed it and asked Sullie to change mandolins. So she walked over to Sullie and quietly said "this one sounds like crap." The whole audience laughed. And she looked out and said "I really didn't scream that." What a performer might forget is that The Egg was designed for it's acoustics. I have watched performers do amazing things completely unplugged and no mics in that room. You can hear a pin drop when it's quiet. So we all had a good laugh over that.

Someone from down the row from me shouted out and asked how many guitars they had. Amy quickly replied "we're old, we have a lot because we never sell ours." And then she and Emily asked Sullie how many instruments were on tour and I think the answer was 17. And then the same chatterbox guy asked if he could hang out with Sullie after the show, and Amy and Emily were like it's better to catch her before a show because afterwards she is busy putting everything away and you don't want to mess with "her guitars". Quite amusing!!

You could tell they were definitely promoting the new disc. Every other word out of their mouths seemed to be "we have a new cd."

They sounded AMAZING. Harmonies were kickin, banter was great, setlist was refreshing, and Julie Wolf is always a lovely compliment to them.

Daily Om

Finding Your Pace
Leo Daily Horoscope

Your life's peacefulness can surprise you today, as it may be that you feel wonderfully calm in the midst of chaos. Even if you are currently facing many challenges, you are likely also quite content with the manner in which your existence is unfolding. The pace of your life, whether it is fast or slow, may just feel correct to you, and your resultant satisfaction can cause you to ask yourself if you are becoming complacent today. It is likely, however, that you have simply adjusted your expectations to correspond with the natural flow of your life. Because you do not feel rushed or held back, you are likely more than ready to encounter all that is yet to come.

The unique pace our lives are meant to follow is set by the universe before we are born. When we give ourselves over to this flow, we need neither fight against a current that is too swift, nor paddle intrepidly to counteract one that is too slow. Even if we are comfortable with the natural pace of existence, however, we tend to lose touch with it over time. We become dissatisfied at our rate of progress and long for change. The key to satisfaction lies in re-immersing ourselves in the universal flow so that we are once again carried along in its gentle current. We grow ever more content as we adjust to the tempo we were meant to embody. Your pace will feel right today when you find the speed at which you are destined to travel

Just Checking In...

Life has been crazy...Suffice it to say...

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am alive...

GET INVOLVED- Gov. Patterson is polling support for his marriage
decision as opposition takes legal action!

Gov. David Paterson told state agencies on May 14 that New York must
recognize same-sex marriages performed in Massachusetts, Canada and
other places where they are legal. The directive should provide gay
couples with as many as 1,300 rights afforded to married heterosexuals,
including the ability to collect health and pension benefits, being
admitted as “close family” in a hospital room and transferring a
business license.

On June 3rd, a Christian legal organization says it has sued to stop
New York from recognizing same-sex marriages legally performed in other
states. The Alliance Defense Fund says it filed its lawsuit Tuesday in a
court in the Bronx. Several Republican state senators are named as party
to the suit. The Arizona-based legal group filing the lawsuit has
intervened elsewhere in gay marriage and religious freedom cases.


Governor Patterson is doing a poll on whether people support his
decision. Take 5 seconds to lodge your support, just call
1-518-474-8390. You will talk to a live person from the Governor's
office during business hours.

Just say "I support the Governor's position on same sex marriage," then
give them your 5 digit (New York) zip code.
