Bob was tired tonight, having had to do press stuff all day on two
hours' sleep, but still managed to summon the energy for a solid and
crowd-pleasing show.

The Northampton show did seem to fall flat. Heck, he didn't even start to
sweat until about the fifth song! No fault of Micheal or Matt. Both seemed
more into it than Bob and rather insane (especially Matt!!) Bob looked like
he was in the grocery store trying to remember what he came there for.
Oddly enough I went into a Starbucks before the show (mostly for the
bathroom) and when I go and sit down in the almost empty back of the place
who do I wind up next to but BM himself. He didn't look happy at all so it
was no suprise the show was somewhat lame. He honestly looked like his dog
had just died. Stand Guard was the highlight. I thought Varnaline were ok
but rather boring until the very end of the set.
