Just saw on the news -- there's a fire in Santa Brahbrah. Jesusito fire or something. Up in a wooded mountain area. It better be out by May 22 or I'm gonna kick that arsonist's ass. He doesn't really know who he's dealing with. [image]

OK, this is totally lame, but Pierce Bronson and family (wife and I think 2 boys) was 7 seats away from me in Santa Brahbrah. Pierce is the middle head of the above 3 (2 sons on either side). The red fabric is his wife's jacket, you can't see her head. Again, sorry it's so lame, but he was stunning. (I know it looks like it could be any schmuck but maybe someone can back me up.) I just held my cell in my hand and turned it in his direction and hoped for the best. We were in the 8th row. Guess he was right there doing the fan presale with me! NOT.

First let me apologize, I am dead tired and a mass of misinformation when I'm totally awake, so I will screw this up royally. Plus my cell only took daytime photos (was dark when the guys came on) and my friend's camera photos (the two she sent me so far) suck.

Jem did Arj's intro (Jem was brill), said it was being filmed for an Arj special, "The Exactly One Hour Long Arj Barker Special" or something like that. I can't even remember who it was for, HBO?? Arj did a pretty long set, went over well. Loved him.

The guys came out, Jem in red plaid shirt (the kind of plaid that looks like it's having an acid trip, y'know that kind?) and a cream v-neck cardigan. Bret wore the dark shirt w/red embroidery (glows in the dark under the blue lights). Bret said someting to the effect of Hello Santa Brah Brah. Early on it became frickin freezing there and Bret kept rubbing his hands together. They said they had no idea it would be so cold there, thought it would be warm like in the soap Santa Barbara, plus there would be lots of affairs. A gal walked up with a blanket for Bret (as per post above) and he put it around his shoulders. Jem said Bret was more cold than he cause Jem had a sweater. They held on to tea cups (rather coffee mugs w/tea) to heat up their hands. Probably helped their vocal chords too, that dang moist ocean air.

I saw them last year LA/Orpheum and they sure have evolved. They have changed the song arrangements, plus brought in of course the NZ orchestra (haha, hilarious), added some new funny lyrics here and there, plus new banter , and of course the season 2 songs -- ALL FRIGGIN BRILLIANT. So happy to not have the exact same show. Of course I can't remember a dang example of how they've changed em up, but these shows have been written about ad nauseum anyhow.

The crowd was enthusiastic but polite. Sadly, I think it was Jem who pointed out there were kids in the audience, so they toned down the rap about being in a band and getting blow jobs. But they still didn't totally clean up the act thank God! Pierce baby, what were ya thinking, bringin' them youngins!! (Not the only one who did). Someone threw a tea bag on stage towards Bret -- !! -- he said that was actually very nice, but it is customary for them to get panties thrown on the stage. He did get hot water for the tea and said we'd have to wait 3-4 minutes for it to be ready so let's do a song. Later Jem did say something about Santa Brahbrah too. For you Bretrosexuals, fyi, Bret was, very handsome with his wild curly shiney hair, and his face was filled out nicely (last year he gotta a bit skinny on tour). They were both so clever and the music was spot on. Wish I had more details but scuse me while I [image]

[image] That's so awesome about Pierce!

I love the bit about blow jobs. [image] But that's good they 'toned it down' I guess [image]

Aw,Bret-y got some hot tea [image] That's cute.

Glad you had a good time [image]

I can't believe you were near Pierce! I was pretty far back, so I didn't see any of the celebs. But I was reading about it on twitter before the show and I was just like "wtf? are they really all here?" It was pretty strange. [image]

Anyway, I'll post about the show in the morning. Waaaaaaay to sleepy to do it now.
