We also saw them in Roanoke the night before; I think I've already mentioned that. Maybe too many times. 202 is a fantastic restaurant in the Market area; the food was so pretty that I wanted to photograph it, but it's such an upscale-type place that I was too chicken to do so. Believe me, that's saying a lot. I'll photograph anything anywhere.
Fayssoux McLean opened for them. She's a very sweet lady who taught school until this June, when she retired after the release of her first album, Early. She's got a beautiful voice and has such a genuine presence on stage. She's still trying to take in that she has released a real live cd.
This isn't a good photo, but it's what I've got.
"Throw my ticket out the window......." They opened with one of my favorite LTH songs, Tonight I'll Be Staying Here with You by Bob Dylan.
I wish I could remember the story that Tom Mason was telling. He's a sometimes-member of the band, and he's damn good. And fun.
While I'm waiting for the photo to upload, may I interject that I just saw another creepy big plastic head Burger King commercial? With a little Burger King? Please, just stop it, Burger King! Every time I think it's safe to go back (love their burgers, although I'm trying to stop eating burgers, so nevermind) to that damned place, another one of those creepy freaky commercials comes out. Good God.
I hate that damned creepy king.
Back to Last Train Home.
The cute kid playing steel guitar that weekend is Alex McCullough. I thought he was about 18; he's 33. He's the same age as my son.
And a good time was had by all.
By the way, LTH will be in Harrisonburg at Clementine on July 18, while WE are in California. Geez. Go if you're in the area; the cover charge is only $5, and they're worth far more than that. And the food at Clementine is some of the best you'll ever have.
