(originally posted on old BB by christina)

It was really lovely. Didn't realize it was the last gig of the tour till Mr. Hannon told us... his voice was a bit raw from singing his heart out all those days in a row, but he and his guys put on a marvellous show. No complaints. He was as charming and entertaining as could be hoped for, with a mug o' tea, American style ("that's why there's no milk or sugar in it"). Treated us to several new songs, including "Happy Goth" and "Idaho" both songs I'd love to hear again. Loved "Invisible Friend", too. Much of the old beloveds hauled out for our approval, including a rocking version of "Becoming More Like Alphi" that had me reassessing the song and finding I liked it, this way. Someone stole the setlist so I have nothing to compare my memory to... the guys were just great, everyone switching instruments like mad, grinning and giving it all they had. At three something in the afternoon, no less. The venue is tiny, so we were all right there in the living room, so to speak.

The only downer of the event was the end. Though we stomped and clapped and cheered and whistled, through the threatening signs of recorded music and brighter lights, there was no encore. Made me very sad... but I suppose they needed the rest and had to be somewhere to catch a plane or whatnot.

So, thanks to TDC for an unforgettable show.
