Counting Crows, finally!

Counting Crows, originally uploaded by monster-ru.

i finally saw them on sunday, and it was well worth the wait! adam duritz sounds as good live as he does on the CD, and i'm not being biased. :) it was really incredible. the highlight for me must be when they played an extended version of Round Here - "did you think that you were dreaming..." and this time, it was about a girl named "Mary". (no more Maria - pui!)

Setlist is here:

Le Ballet D'or / Have You Seen Me Lately / Hanging Tree / Mr Jones / Colourblind / Cowboys / Good Time / Anna Begins / Round Here / Washington Square / Big Yellow Taxi / A Long December / Rain King / Blues Run the Game / Hard Candy / Meet on the Ledge (Fairport Convention) / Holiday in Spain.

a bit disappointed that they didn't play Mrs P's Lullaby, but it was still a very good night. adam durtiz said something about trying to squeeze the most number of songs into a short amount of time.

also chuffed to bits that the babysitting went so well. when we got back to the hotel at 11ish pm, (after a drink at the bar!) our friend was sitting in the dark so as to not wake Xander up!

(p.s. - the boy also started to walk properly on his own. he took quite a few steps on sunday by himself, and last night, he gained enough confidence to walk around all by himself!)
