…and they call out “Where am I?”
There has been many moments where I have been emotionally affected by a performance. Here Comes A Regular in Milwaukee 2005 and Crackle & Drag at the 1st Guthrie night 2002 for example.
But what really got me was A Star Is Bored near the end of the 3rd night at the Guthrie in 2002. It was a song I had previously never gave much of a listen to. There seemed to be such a purpose to singing that song at that time. No flubs, no jokes, no giving up (as there was in many songs that weekend) There was a feeling and a message being relayed, and I felt it. Won’t forget it.
Thanks to whoever originally taped it, and to Blasty for posting the video….
most of you by now (what is this? the 7th board we have had?) know that i do now, and always have loved that song. that performance was chilling to the bone. in a good, but also a “bad-moon-rising” way.
