Well, just wow Minneapolis, what an excellent crowd you made. The Varsity Theater was beautiful and filled with Christmas lights, everything sounded great, and there were even blue and yellow stage lights for “Ikea.” I played “Curl” for the first time ever live (how could I not?), and even that went pretty well. I felt so confident I even launched blindly into “Soft Rocked,” though it became clear pretty quickly that I didn’t remember the chords or the words. Oops. Storm suggested we segue into “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” which turned out much better, or at least was a soft enough landing that nobody got hurt. Also, Neil Gaiman was in attendance, which makes me feel all tingly.
Thanks to everyone who made that awesome show happen – I’ll definitely be back.
