The Curious Case of the Lame Loge and Other Misc. Thoughts

Just when I thought I was getting a bit older (I just turned 29) and maybe not able to fit in with a younger concert crowd, I was astonished last night at how nearly everyone remained seated for the entire show. I was in the first row of the Loge toward the left side facing the stage. When I got up to "Is It Really So Strange," everyone groaned. When I rose to applaud a shimmering "November," no one else seemed to be as excited.

Now, I know I have a fat ass that makes for a horrible window, but when did Morrissey fans demonstrate the character of an insurance seminar audience in Des Moines?

Just curious. Then again, I haven't seen him since Summerstage in 97, so maybe times have changed.

I like Tony's review of the show. Set list was good, band sounded GREAT, but it was so weird to listen to Moz talk with the crowd throughout the whole show. I felt like I was watching VH1 ("tonight on Storytellers...Morrissey"). And while I believe that he has finally become the lounge singer that critics have often accused him of being, I was delighted at the over-the-top humility. I have a newfound respect for him that I haven't felt since he first recruited the terrific former Psychobillies that now make up his band.

Last but not least, no Southpaw Grammar tunes. Good night and thank you, Mozzer.
