We Could Be Bouncing of the Top of this Cloud

Sauce and I went to see Tori Amos last night at the Orpheum, and we had an absolutely killer time! She is promoting her new album, American Dolls Posse, and played a lot of songs off the album as well as her older material, including killer versions of "Crucify", "Take to the Sky" and "Jackie's Strength". I was really impressed with her voice and enjoyed the costumes and lights, not to mention, her band was really tight. This is the fourth time I have seen Tori live (twice with a band and twice on her own,) and, while I think that I prefer her with just the piano and organ, I still think that this tour is really worth checking out. Cause man, does that woman rock!!!!!!! (And you need to see the fantastic physical shape she is in... her ARMS... WOW.)

The improv was CLASSIC, especially since she acknowledged that the Orpheum is a rat-infested pit. Seriously, the opening act was on stage in bare feet, and I poked Sauce at one point to say, "I hope he has a hepatitis shot." That theater really could use some TLC; if nothing else, the rows could be a little further apart for those of us with longer legs. The Orpheum has the potential to be a lovely theater, but, the management doesn't seem to be giving any indication that they care. I wish the city could do something about that; the theater is should be a registered historical site.

I having been trying the DL last night's Boston show from Tori's Official Bootlegs site all morning and have been experiencing major problems with the DL part, although the site had no problem taking my money. After fighting the site, I found out that I was not the only person having problems. I would hope that the fix comes through soon and that Sony gives the fans some sort of bonus for the frustration we have incurred.

I also found that I couldn't buy tickets for the Mighty Mighty Bosstones Hometown Throwdown on Ticketmaster this morning. There was no way all five nights were sold out at 10:10 am. Now it appears there is a website issue. JR was going to head down the Middle East at lunchtime to try to buy tickets there. I hope she can get them because we want to go! I love seeing live music!!
