Open Thread

BRUUUUUUUUUUUUCE edition. concert review. Went to see Bright Eyes, REM, and Bruce Springsteen and the E. Street Band on their Vote for Change tour. Politics were in the air, with Bruce making a brief "public service announcement" and Stipe wearing a "Kerry" t-shirt, but not overwhelming. Mostly it was just a good show. I'm not a particularly big fan of either REM or Bruce (flame away), so I can't really give a "fan's" perspective, but it was a good show. Bright Eyes opened, then REM, then Bruce. Crossover moments include Springsteen joining in on "Man on the Moon" with REM and Stipe joining in on "Because the Night." The whole crowd joined in for "Peace, Love, and Understanding" and "People Have the Power."
