Concert Review of the Moment: Washington, DC - 11/15 & 16/07

The Concert Review of the Moment on Washington, DC - 11/15 & 16/07:

hello to all -

im sitting at work and just wanted to leave a couple of thoughts here.

my name is Jeff, im 22 years old, and i was at both shows this past week.

I just wanted to underscore how lucky I feel to be able to have experienced all of this.

I only recently have really gotten the Neil obsession bug. I got Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere about a year ago. Now I have aroudn 20 of his albums and he has become my favorite artist.

Seeing him perform "Ambulance Blues," "Mellow My Mind," "Cowgirl In The Sand," "Tonight's The Night" etc just blew my mind. The "No Hidden Path" from Friday was just phenomenal. What great energy and passion he still has.

also, what a great sounding venue. it kind of sucks that the off-beat clapping sounded just as clear as the music, but nothing could have ruined these shows - even if someone's cell phone did ring right behind me during the "He has a different story for every set of eyes" line during AB on Thursday ( i was fcking pissed).

My previous favorite artist was Springsteen, and while I still love his early records and the live shows I have collected over the years, I believe Neil has a certain rawness and irreverance to him that Bruce just lacks. You gotta figure Neil is goign to be playing dirty guitar solos until his final moments.

Also, I met some nice folks in the crowd. I have waited to get in "the pit" a couple times at Bruce shows and have found that, apart from those with me in the frnot, it is often just a 'wine and cheese' type crowd at his shows. they go to 1 show a year, take like a ridiculous Hummer limo and sit in a luxury box while yelling for 'dancing in the dark.' I hate those people. They are the ones killing mainstream concerts.

But this all goes to further emphasize how cool it was to meet some of the folks around me this past weekend. These people knew music and loved music and I just had a great time seeing the shows and being in the total atmosphere.

What a great time. Long live Neil Young.

I hope Neil will play 'Journey Through The Past' 'Helpless' and 'Four strong Winds' in Massey Hall of Toronto 26, 27 and 29 November. Lasr time he played 'Helpless' in concert of Toronto was 30 Mar 2000 with CSNY.

I have been following Neil since 1969, remember, Sea of Madness. Well here is the spoof, at http://www.realcrash.com/sea-of-madness-neil-young/. It is a economic apocalypse, not a nuclear one, though you could have booth.
