Actually I was the last person they let in at 21 Grand, and I was
downtown to look for an address of 21 Grand...Just lucky to see
the crowd outside!
Great show at 21, lots of charm and personality.
So, Rick, after seeing your act, all I can say is.."Where's the flood"?

I was at the 21 Grand show on the 27th and it
was perfect. I've been a Waits fan for 20 years, have every album, have seen him in concert, and even saw The Black Rider
at the ACT last year. Your show - and by "your" I mean all of the bands - was perfect, dreamlike almost. You put on a show
that brought to life the characters and songs of Waits/Brennan in a way that I wouldn't have thought possible. The changing
moods was great, the scope of the songs chosen was awesome, the variation on performance styles was just too perfect for words.
You folks have to do that again. Get the word out to Waits-lovers everywhere to see what you are doing. I can't imagine a
Waits aficiando who wouldn't be blown away by your show.
If you are selling video/audio of the show, let me know
so that I can turn folks onto it.
