What a great show! Robyn was the "early" show tonight at Southpaw, so he was
on at 8 and off by 9:30, but it was a great set, and nice to see Robyn close
to home. I got THREE requests in. Actually, I was bellowing them out from
the back, and a couple guys mid-crowd would relay them forward, ie- "CLEAN
STEVE....yeah! Clean Steve...Clean Steve"...and Robyn would hear the three-part
echo and play it. Also got "Queen Elvis" and "One Long Pair of Eyes" played that

Robyn was acoustic all night, opening with Dylan's "Visions of Johanna."
Early on he did "Bass" which was ironic because that's what we were DRINKING!
Other highlights (sorry, I'm bad at remembering setlists verbatim, especially
after 4 or 5 Bass) were "Glass Hotel"
"Full Moon in my Soul," "1974," "My Wife and My Dead Wife," "Linctus House,"
a beautiful "Airscape" and the first time I saw Robyn do "Uncorrected
Personality Traits" without Andy and Morris beside him. Sprinkle in a Doors and ELvis
cover and it made for a great night.

We were actually standing next to John Wesley Harding and his wife, but sadly
no reprise of of "Ted, Woody and Junior" (done with Wes and Ken Stringfellow
at SXSW) was to be, I was hoping for Ted & Woody at least!
