Mayer & Crow

The 09/23/06 concert was amazing! The opening band, Marjorie Fair, had an interesting sound... reminiscent of Radiohead and Coldplay. Unfortunately, I was not at all familiar with them, so I couldn't tell you anything about the stuff they played. Besides, I have to admit I spent their whole set looking forward to John Mayer's stage entrance.

Enter John. Although it was a bit odd seeing him sacfrifice his headline for someone else and go for a slightly shorter set list, he was still his usual entertaining self. The only complaint I had was that the bass seemed to get lost somewhere in the mix. This was especially unfortunate due to the fact that much of his newer material has some killer bass hooks. But still, I fully enjoyed seeing John live for the fifth time.

John's set list:

  • Belief
  • [jam]
  • Vultures
  • Good Love Is On The Way
  • Gravity
  • Why Georgia
  • Slow Dancing In A Burning Room
  • Bigger Than My Body
  • I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)
  • Daughters
  • [encore]
  • Waiting On The World To Change
  • No Such Thing


Although I've been a longtime fan of Sheryl Crow's, I still had yet to see her perform live. So there was no doubt I would also enjoy her set... And I very very did! She played a lot of her great stuff, as well as some newer songs I hadn't heard yet but forced myself to remember so I could download the tracks online. I recommend seeing her if you ever get the chance. She puts on a great show!

All in all, it was a great night! One more fantastic concert to chalk up in my memory bank. The funny thing is, I have gone alone to three of my last four concerts. Perhaps soon I'll find some people who care to join me in my ongoing quest for more concert experience...
