The mornings have been overcast, but by the afternoon the sun is out and there are blue patches in the sky. I am enjoying our stay here. The first show on Thursday was very good, I thought. Michael and Jon were exploring new territory, including some slap-bass in Streetlight, which was fun to react to. My back hurt during the second show – two 90 minute performances each night plus some time to practice = at least four hours of sitting. At home I can get up or sit in different positions, but during concerts one has to sit in front of the microphone. Did some stretching in the hotel room afterward and feel fine after a good night’s sleep.
