I have a newfound respect for Hanson, especially Zac. The boy would tune his drum at a rest in the middle of a song, and then come back in perfectly. I have never seen a drummer do that. That is so cool.
After the show I was admiring the sound board in the back while waiting in line for the Merchandise table, and right after mentioning that I would prefer a Mackie board. The sound guy gave me his special setlist. He was looking right at me as I made the Mackie comment and just gave it too me. Their sound guy kicks lots of booty.
While I know many of you are groaning about my enjoyment of this band/show...I highly recomend going to a show if you ever get a chance. Just sit in teh back and enjoy, they are true performers and obviously love what they are doing. That is the only way to really earn my respect as a musician.
Besides the concert, one of the other really interestig things that happened that day was seeing seven police cars show up to arrest this one guy that had ben harrasign one of the girls all night. He happened to be a registered sexual predator, and the many cars arrived because he was resistign arrest, but it was still quite a spectacle for 7am in downtown Seattle.
I think that's all I can really say for now. I have so much i wantot write about, but I'm falling asleep here as is. I'll write more tomorrow while I have the day off.
