cut to show....this part others will fill in. it was amazing tho. i just can't get over it. he wore a hat, which made me sad b/c i wanted to see his face. he was the cutest when he sang lost and found...he didn't have his guitar, so he looked like he didn't know what to do w/ his hands, and just put them in his front pockets. he looked so adorable! like a little kid w/ a solo at a school recital or something. i loved sam's shirt.......hobbit...... i wanted to meet both of them after, but we were rushed out after buying shirts and stuff.
anyone tape the show? i really want a copy of "i me mine." one of my favorite covers.......yummy.
i didn't really try to meet anyone from the list since i've been too busy lately w/ my paper's layout this week to read posts carefully, but i kinda chatted w/ two girls (or women..they looked like they deserved those bracelets!) who tried to meet their friend closer up front but couldn't really push through, so they stood near me and my friend. first i was pissed they got in front of me, but they were so sweet.....plus i could see as well either way, so i got over my kinda-silent hissy fit..so sorry if i was catty in the beginning, if you guys are on the list.
the worst part of the night was missing the 12:30 train after being caught by the cops jumping the turnstile. we only had 2 ppl's worth of fare on our combined cards, we had 10 minutes to get to gct, and there wasn't a card fill-up machine and we were too dumb to think there might be another entrance. we also weren't completely w/ it. but $60 instead of $1.50!!! ridiculous! i feel like such an outlaw. i almost laughed b/c i thought the cops were kidding.....the badge looked so fake, like "my first police outfit" from playskool or something. whoops.
ok, i am rambling now and i'm sorry if you read all of this garble. i'm going to go nap now and dream about s-k on mon and tues. anyone else going?

I wish that I could give a decent review of friday's Irving plaza show, but sadly I had to miss half of it. To make the last train back to my not-very-populated area of NJ, I had to leave the show after Elliott sang "In the lost & found". The crowd seemed good to me and not weird like Thursday was supposed to be, and it was definetly worth seeing just a few songs and getting the cute blue t-shirt.
ps: If the girl who I gave my ticket stub to after I left is on the list, I hope that you were able to get in.

Friday- WOW. I have nothing else to say. Too bad I'm not Steve, I can't put it into words, but trust me on this one- WOW. Anybody else there? AND- the dancers were really great! I think it added a casual, goofy element to the show, and it was just funny. (you could tell that they were friends of E's, I mean, they weren't hired people or anything!) The crowd was SO into the entire show. I've never heard such a loud, (good loud,) crowd, and Elliott kept smiling when people would break into a roar in the middle of non-lyrical verses or whatever. And- unlike Thursday, I didn't have someone standing right next to me singing every word in my ear! I almost thought he was coming out for a third encore, but then they pulled down the screen.
Anyway, sorry for the rambling message, but I just had to throw my two cents in! Oh, and don't listen to that guy who continually has shitty things to say about someone he's supposed to be a fan of, the new song "Pretty (Ugly Before)" is sorta a throw-back to the great simplicity of his earlier songs, and I absolutely love it. I think it's my new favorite.
Anyone at the Thursday night show in New York -- comments? I got a real weird vibe there, unlike any Elliott show I'd seen before -- I don't know, it seemed like people were distracted or something. And Elliott mentioned something and asked if the crowd was okay, and then sort of raced through the show, I thought. One encore too, not two. Am I the only one who thought this?
