Fan Recaps and Comments:


My first (of many, hopefully!) TMBG far and away exceeded all the expectations I'd been building up for years. There wasn't anything at all that was lacking. For one thing, I don't think I've ever met a friendlier group of people than TMBG fans. The pre-show music was probably the best I've ever heard. The opening act, Oppenheimer, was amazing...they really reminded me of an Irish indie-rock incarnation of Them. (Really, what's not to love about a band with a song with an airhorn solo?)
And, of course, They were unbelievable. Every song was totally on-point, and the set list was perfect. You could definitely tell that They were just playing what they wanted to - seeing any one of the guys (Linnell in particular) smile while they were playing was just beautiful for some reason. Aside from She's an Angel, They got to every song I wanted to hear. The banter was wonderful - sort of made me want to have mini-Johns to put in my pocket so I could always have it with me, you know? ;]
Marty came out after the show and gave low-fives/handshakes to everyone in the front row...he asked about this stupid little tiara I was wearing (my friend got it for me 'cause it was the night before my birthday), and having explained it, I now can say that Marty Beller was the first person to wish me a happy birthday...if that's any indication, I'd have to say that seventeen is going to be a good year. :]
I'm sorry if this is at all incoherent and grammatically awful, but honestly, I'm still completely speechless. I don't know that I could have asked for a better present!
