Hey, this guy again. After 26 concerts, what’s there left to say?

Out of ideas, I asked Mika for advice.

“Write it in haiku.”

So that’s what I’ll do. That should make it amusing, if only for me.

Dez and Reagan came. We met at the casino (that’s where the show was). We had front row seats - Hawksley’s first casino show. Seemed like a good crowd.

Saw a guy from work. He’d never heard Hawksley songs - asked what to expect. I couldn’t answer. Kind of pop or rock or folk, sometimes weird - or not. Never got to ask “how was your first Hawksley show?” Maybe tomorrow.

Ads for future shows: Matthew Good, Gowan, The Trews. And… who? Elton Rohn? Is this man’s name Ron? If so, just use Elton Ron. That H complicates. Tribute bands abound. Gilvis or GTFO, far as I’m concerned.

Local DJ time! Five minutes of blah blah blah, then came Hawk and band. No Mr. Lonely - more like MISSED-er Lonely, right? Right? Anyone? ::sigh::

This is the setlist. Will it haiku properly? I guess we’ll find out.

Beautiful and Nat-
ural , Wonderful and Sad,
Your Beauty Must Be

Rubbing Off, Ita-
ly, Baby Mosquito, Dev-
astating , Striptease,

No More Named Johnny,
Battlefords, Piano Blink,
Oh You Delicate

Heart, No Beginning
No End, Chemical, Around
Here, Who Do They Kiss?

Tahiti Treat, Don’t
Be Crushed, encore: We’ll Make Time,
Safe and Sound was last

That worked out okay. Sometimes awkward, sometimes good. Better than I’d guess.

So, about that show. You all know that I had fun; here’s what was unique. With no Lonely there, not as many softer songs. Highlight was Striptease. Super cool version - Hawk played drum pads with mallets. That was new to me. All throughout the show, he played different instruments; guitar, drums, and keys. Something we noticed - Hawksley seems the happiest when playing the drums.

Not much stage banter - usually we get stories. Not so much this time.

When the encore came, Hawksley came back out alone. T’was just him and us. First we had to sing, then - for Safe and Sound - whistle. Two risky choices; We’ll Make Time is fast, not the easiest to sing. (And our whistling stunk.)

Before we went home, I cashed in my free slot play. Took home fifty bucks.
