U2 tomorrow night!! =)
I've been to see the boys twice, once in Providence, RI (10/31/2001) and once in Boston (5/26/2005) -- my next show is on the 22nd in Pittsburgh.
How do you think a Pittsburgh crowd will compare to Boston-area crowd?
It's generally crazy in Boston with Bono saying things about how Boston is like home to them, and the Irish connection, etc, etc.
And so far I've found Pittsburgh concert crowds in general (at other artists' shows) to be kind of...subdued.
Anyone seen U2 in Pittsburgh before? Any thoughts?
Today's Song of the Day is
Walk to the Water
Originally released on the With or Without You single, it reappeared on November 3, 1998 on the Best Of 1980-1990 B Side disc. Pretty moody, unique, but nice. Reminds me of the album October, though I can't say why. Typical of b-sides (for me anyway) it's one of my favorites that will never be performed or thought of much...the lyrics are my favorite part. It reminds me of snow, not because of the lyrics, but because I bought The Best Of on a snow day from school and the b-sides disc lived in my stereo for a loooong time. I was willing to pay for the Best Of cd just for the b-sides. I rarely set out with intentions to listen to this song, but when it comes up on the iTunes shuffle, I am always utterly pleased.

Attention Aussie U2 fans :P
Bono and Larry are going to be featured on a program tonight celebrating the life of Oscar Wilde. Not sure what they're doing, but unless the newspaper is lying to me, they will be appearing; possibly giving readings.
SBS - 9.30pm Sunday
Larry MULLINS... honestly...
