All in all, a great night. The venue was a seedy ex-cinema, very much like a Swindon nightclub :). The Podd sits in the middle of the dance floor, with speakers arranged around the hall. The man himself looked a bit knackered [shagged out; that is very tired or worn out (in polite company :))] to me, and seemed a bit serious, but maybe it was just concentration. Interesting to see that the gangling Runt is now sporting a healthy beergut. Amazed at the size of his hands - big spade-like things rather like a labourers. The hall was about half-full I'd say (I bought ticket 528 about three hours before the show), and the audience was typically restrained. Before you ask I was typically restrained myself, but my excuse is that I'd just walked five miles along the Regents Canal and I was lusting after a good proper sit down, OK? :). That being said, there was a good party mood, people from the crowd being pulled onstage to dance, hit things, or play lead solos on TRs guitar (a heart-warming interlude).
UK readers going to nights gig might like to know that Todd is making a 'personal appearance' at the Virgin Megastore at Marble Arch at 4.00pm today (Friday).
Wish I could afford to go again tonight!.
