I'm a little tuckered out. I made a quick trip to Atlanta to see one of my favorite bands The Waterboys. When I heard they were doing their first U.S. tour in 6 years and that they would be doing their first Atlanta show since 2002 (which I saw), how could I not get tix? Thing is, I kind of forgot about it until earlier last week. At that point I was kind of on the fence if I was going to go or not...then came to my senses and decided, of course I'm going. SO glad I did. It was really amazing. Even better than I expected it to be and I knew it would be cool and was on the day that Lou Reed passed. The set list is posted below.
The show also turned out to be a reunion of sorts. The Waterboys were a big deal to a bunch of us at Ga. Southern College (yeah, it's a Univ. now, but back then it was still just a college) and as luck would have it, a bunch of my old peeps made it out. There were 1 or 2 missing that surprised me, but I know they are just old and tired now...they can't help it.
So as awesome as The Waterboys show was...last weeks Flight Test was pretty awesome as well, which is why I did a "Very Special Encore" episode...that and because yesterday was spent driving back from Atlanta. So re-enjoy the list.
