We saw Great Big Sea last night.

Holy hell, was that awesome. We were in the 12th row, and the Moore Theatre is a rather small one, so it was a cozy feeling all around. During their second encore, they quieted the audience down, and sang "Old Brown's Daughter", a capella, completely unwired. No mics or anything. It was utterly fantastic.

Apart from the two encores, they played two sets - the first one was filled with "traditional" songs, many of their sea chanteys and such, and the second was mostly their more poppish type stuff.

It was particularly great, considering I only found out that they were playing on Friday afternoon. Yay.

Next up is Ben Folds, in about three weeks. Should be awesome.

They do pop stuff AND sea chanteys? This sounds worth a look. Do you have any mp3's you could IM me? -J

Well, according to my tour shirt, they're in Portland, um, tonight. Here in Seattle, they still had tickets at the door, so it might be worth a shot.

I've never seen them play old brown's daughter live, and so i'm very jealous of you. it sounds like it was fantastic.

Well, they've got a date in Northampton and two in Cambridge, so it shouldn't be too hard! Good luck.
