Moved to the smaller Bluebird by a nervous promoter when advance sales
for the Ogden Theater were slow, this show sold out early in the evening,
and a lot of disappointed folks were turned away.  The 600 or so who got
in, however, were treated to an out-and-out rocker.  The band had fun, the
audience had fun, the staff had fun and the crew had fun.  This was one
of the better ones, a definite upper after the weirdness of Omaha.  I can't
think of any real standout songs; the pace was fast and even throughout
the performance.  From my recording position I was only able to hear
Michael's amp, so I amused myself by watching the exuberant audience
react to the various turns of the show--"Man On The Moon" drew a
particularly happy response.

Everyone else has already left Denver.  Bob and a couple of others are
off to Vegas; the rest of the crew is driving in shifts to LA, the whole 1100
miles, straight through.  Me, I'm a wimp:  I'm going to bed, and will wait
'til morning to cross the Divide.  I prefer to drive by daylight, as I've 
never seen that portion of the country from the ground, and I'm excited about 
the prospect.

I don't think I have ever seen the Bluebird Theatre so full.  Anymore
Time Between was, I thought, the spine tingling highlight.  Hearing Man
on the Moon was a real treat too.  I was able to talk a bit with Bob
after the show, as others have reported, he was very friendly... he said
the Denver show was a good ending for the week.  I noticed he had a "Dr.
Katz" pin on his backpack...that is a funny show, maybe Bob could be a
