Doubt she won anyone over tonight but I thought she was good, if a little stilted & nervous. Didn't recognize anyone in her backing band but they were good too, seemed to enjoy playing he stuff. If she tours & loosens up she'll be a lot of fun to watch.

Yes, the Bound to Pack It Up tease had me clutching my heart!

The setlist does not do this show justice - most of the first set from Canon through Top Yourself was like the Kraken of music - all the tentacles of this massive beast swirling, twisting, creeping and slithering all around you in a seductive dance to the death - at least that's the way it felt to me! :D. So yeah, it was pretty fantastic.

There were definitely some equipment problems and at times the sound was a bit muddy (the trade off for being up front) but nothing to fuss about. The crowd was great & full of energy - lots of LR and Swirl folks representing. Daniel (getbehindmejack) was on the rail to my right and he was so exuberant and expressive with his arms it looked like he was providing the rock and roll ASL translation!

Did anyone else see Jack seriously striking a pose and mugging for the video camera? He was right in front of us and he held a pose for a good 15 seconds.

Did anyone catch what Jack said at the end? I only caught a few random words ( the crowd was truly deafening around me).

All I remember is that he said the effort we went to to see them wasn't lost on them, and that they love us. It was really sweet & heartfelt. Jack seemed to be in a very good mood last night, he was grinning quite a lot. Haven't seen him smile like that since Webster Hall in 2012.

Goddamn, I want a time machine so I can relive this show forever, it was so fantastic.

DC/Baltimore loves the hell out of Jack and does not refrain from showing it.  I knew when the crowd roared loud enough to shake the rafters just for Lalo's announcement that we were in for a good show and Jack kept grinning from ear-to-ear so he definitely felt it. I was so gratified by my hometown crowd, their response didn't surprise me but it still felt so good.  Like Renfield and jeejet mentioned, there were some notable moments (the extended Another Way To Die tease had me just as excited as the Bound To Pack It Up tease), but what was overwhelmingly memorable about this show was the EN-ER-GY between Jack and the crowd.

I'll have to look at the setlist on the setlist.fm website, to see if any of those snippets/teases you guys mentioned are accounted for.

 

I'm glad Jack is in good spirits.  So, any comments about the ankle?  Was he bouncing around, treating it gingerly?  Do you think it's mostly recovered?

 

And Kali, you need to create a sign on a piece of paper asking him what that song he played in Paris ("exhaust in my mouth for days") was! :lol:

 

The photos section for this show has the wrong date (today) listed.

I saw the dis about Meg. How can they even have the nerve to compare Meg to Daru. Completely two different styles.

Earthly events keep happening in the wake of a JW show. First the earthquake after the show in SF and then a meteor just a few minutes after the show at MPP!

I was standing in the parking lot and I looked up and saw what I thought was a single firework but it was actually a meteor!

In answer to J.C., Jack's ankle seems just fine. If I didn't know about the sprain, I wouldn't have a clue there'd ever been a problem with it.  And I'm pretty sure that the song in Paris was improvisational.  I have it on good authority that the unknown song the first night in Seattle, the one that blew us all away, was improvised on the spot. So Paris probably was, too.
