Mardi Gras Galveston

Saw Mid-Life Crisis [note: I know one of the band members]. They had quite the turnout; someone had some fun and got some panties for various people to throw during a Jimmy Buffet cover. Overall, I think they did a good job. One original song, the rest covers. Most of the band sang at one point or another. The lead guitarist probably did the best job imitating the song, followed by the keyboardist. A little too much time between songs probably.

Saw a short bit of BeauSoleil. Zydeco, sung in Creole. No thanks. [hmm, these guys are Grammy winners?]

Saw Eric Johnson. Man, what a great guitarist. His stage presence is closer to a classical concert than a rock band - no jumping, the only time he was looking at the crowd was when he was singing. The bass player did some, but not enough to distract. I'm going to have to get the rest of his albums, I think. He did two acoustic songs.

Seemed like a low turnout, and a much older turnout than last year.
