The concert last night was great. I need a pair of earplugs, though. I always think that when I'm at a show, but I never remember to get any or bring any to the shows.
David Gedge has a fascinating stage presence. He's one of those performers who loves to chat with his audience. It reminded me of Tori Amos. At one point, they played a cover of the Twin Peaks theme, and there was a lot of the back catalog that I have never heard before that was played as well. The Wedding Present has a fairly large female fan base too, which isn't too surprising since most of his songs are about love had or love lost.
The opener, Tim Fite, is crazy. His show made me think of Cex mixed with cLOUDDEAD. He was up there playing an acoustic guitar while his brother played with a sequencer and they had a projector showing Tim Fite playing another instrument. It was a cool design for a live show and it made me curious as to what his music normally sounds like. There was this one guy in the audience who was totally rocking out to it and knew ever word of every song, but the rest of the audience seemed confused most of the time.

Besides the performance itself, I kept to myself the entire time. The only time I talked was to order a beer before the show. Not sure why I was so introverted last night, but I didn't feel comfortable trying to start any conversations with strangers.

After the show, I drove straight home and picked up the book that I'm currently reading. The first book of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire called A Game of Thrones. At first, it was a little bit of a slow start and it took me about 50 pages to start connecting to the story, but now I can't seem to put it down. Every night, I lay in bed reading for hours and I have to make a conscious effort to stop reading and go to sleep.

Re: Holy holy crap!!
Well, with four books out now and the fifth one almost completed, he seems to be on a good pace to finish the series by 2015!

I've thought of picking up that series a lot, but I steadfastly refuse to start another unfinished series. I hate waiting!

The joy is in the journey. Going through 7 books all at once is a lot to take in. I'm looking forward to moving a little slower with this series.
