(oh my gosh, how the wind blew my thin hairs)I was pleasantly surprised to find their sound virtually unchanged from what you hear on the radio waves - that guy was pretty on key and everything. I hate it when you go to a concert and the artist sounds totally awful. They did all the faves and a lot of their new stuff which is ALL really good. Some new faves of mine would be "I Got You" and "Save Me, San Francisco." Of course they did "Hey Soul Sister" and "If It's Love" as well as their older classics like "Meet Virginia"
Seeing how we were at a winery, the wine was definitely flowing there. It was pretty entertaining to watch old married couples groping each other and dancing the night away.
After officially leaving the stage they came back out to do an encore and delighted us with "Drops of Jupiter."
The venue was pretty great. At Maryhill Winery in Goldendale, Washington.
After the show we hit the gas station (courtesy my walnut sized bladder) then went to an imitation Stonehenge near the winery. That was cool and had it's funny moments – including zombies, an alien spaceship dock and almost bumping into a pair of lovers. The stars were out in true form last night, too – which instigated a hunt for the little dipper and some serious discussion over the Milky Way (Eric wanted me to amend this to say that after he did some research he discovered that I was - yet again - correct and we were, in fact, gazing at zee Milky Way).
Train was great, Eric was fun and I had one of the best evenings I've had in a while.
