Went to see a free TV taping of a Crowded House show last night, with the lovely Pamela and Sue.
CH are kicking off their reunion tour and promoting their new album, and the show was a nice balance of new stuff and old.
Neil Finn is still in excellent voice, still totally cute and self-effacing, and the band sounded absolutely great. And we were this close to the action. Even with my spotty Finn brothers history, I felt giddy and (inwardly) squealy.
There were maybe a few too many audience singalong moments for my taste, but I guess Crowded House is on the official register of Nostalgia Acts now, and these things can't be helped.
The show was at the Masonic Lodge, which I have walked past 1000 times and have never been in--it's a gorgeous old building with a plush concert hall featuring a huge old pipe organ (which got played last night). And everyone got free vodka drinks in the swanky Masonic bar--woo!
All in all,a perfect rock spectacle.
