We got to the show and found our seats. Dovetail Joint was the opening act, and, quite frankly, they kicked ass!!! I don't know what the hell was wrong with the crowd in Fayetteville; they were SOOO WRONG to Dovetail!!! Noone stood up; they just sat in their chairs like bumps on logs. And these guys rocked!!! Anyone who gets a chance to see them, should!!! And anyone who was at the show and sat there like a zombie should be ashamed!!!!
Okay, so finally, it was time for Goo!!!! The crowd was much more responsive for our boys!!! Thank God they stood up! They opened with "Dizzy," of course, and the rest of the set list didn't change much! Once again, quite a few of the SSCW songs were played, and to my delight, Robby got to sing quite a bit!!!!! Highlights were, "Burnin' Up," "Another Second Time Around," and Johnny's take on the Colorado high school killings. He said that it was really bugging him that kids could carry guns and bombs around, but that you couldn't buy a bag of weed and get high without getting popped. (I'm paraphrasing here, please don't flame me if you were there!!) He then went on to say that he was NOT advocating getting high (let's not start another month-long debate on the goo-list!) because he thought that pot made people stupid. He went on to say that this whole thing with guns in schools really bugged him, then said something to the effect of, "I'm gonna shut up now, cuz I'm starting to sound like an asshole!" (again, I'm paraphrasing!) Robby mentioned how cool it was that they'd sold out both nights that they were in Arkansas. I thought that rocked, because I didn't think many other native Arkansans had the good sense to appreciate our boys!!!! They sounded excellent as always, although I think I was one of the few in the section where I was seated that knew all the words!!! The show was over WAY too soon and it was time to go. We headed out to the buses, but the boys took off immediately following the show. Chalk up one more GOO-d time had by all!!! I can't wait for show number five!!! Hurry up, boys, and post those dates with Sugar Ray!
