Subject: SANTA ANA: GALAXY -- 11/24/96
I hope others post about this show, because i might
be a bit bias. with
my literally spitting-distance seat and a dentists-view,
no flubs. the sound and performance was ten times
better than HoB.
ok, maybe eight times.
lysistrata, tie you down, hammer, cliche...
strong voice. Todd
is apparently rested and ready. the well-fed
with the dinner-theatre dynamic. T fights the
urge to break into
a Robert Goulet tribute.
family values, tables... T asks about the 'glob
of snot' the
borrowed sony scanner smatters across the painfully
video screen. tables has T trippin around stage,
off a problematic guitar stand for $20 to a
fidelity, viking, wouldn't have made... T slows
it down to a
comfortable groove for fidelity. i bequeath
the horns to
Kawauchi-san for the flubless viking song.
T nails the opening
strains of wouldn't have made. all is well
in santa ana.
M/BD&B/M... i almost enjoy this whole thing,
as T indulges in
some bluesy improvisation. i guess being close
enough to count
the wrinkles on his knuckles helps, too.
individualist... T goes to 'give five' to the
8500 and the Mac
skips back a few bars in the song. T recovers
nicely by running
to center stage to catch up with the chorus.
i want you, hide your love away... alright!
T digs performing
these, and you can feel it. when played back-to-back,
the similarities in the T-version of these two
musical influences. T receives roses at the
end of hide.
b&w... rockin. almost every show seems
better than the last.
love that cowbell, and that snare sound, and
that bass, and...
one world... much fuller sound than previous
the 2-and clapping is fed by the electric's
is less laborous for T with the green monster.
honest work, wwe, hawking... T reappears for
the encore and finally
satisfies the unstoppable crys of an obnoxious
drunk at stage left
[see separate message]. people begin to spontaneously
when T silences them with honest work. whomever
may read this, do
everyone a favor and *don't* try and sing this
along with Todd.
wwe showcased our first technical glitch on
this tour. right before
'take it from the ground up...', the Mac hung
on the same part of the
song continuously looping. T restarts CuBase,
drops in wwe, and
moves the time bar to where we left off, determined
hawking was yet again, tremendously entertaining,
and reminded me
of why i so enjoy this Great Communicator.
don't be stickin that horn up my skirt
Greetings awiz list members:
I saw the Todd solo show at the Galaxy Theatre in Santa
(Orange County, USA, former home of Bob Dornan and Curt

The set list speaks for itself. Todd played over 2 hours.
The 110 tape we ran,
ran out Before the piano solo of Hawking, which was
a real gem. (Gee, don't you
just hate it when artists like Todd use references to
God in their songs) :)
The only negatives I can think of are, 1)the time taken
to load the CD rom and
get it going (we have all done this on our own computers,
but to the
uninitiated, maybe it was cool). 2) Honest work as the
(Not enough material to pull from here?????) Anyway,
those are very minor negs
