Dear Midlake…

Dear Midlake -

I’m sorry that you had so many extraneous talkers at your show last night at Numbers.  I really have no idea what they were doing there – why would you pay $14 to get into a concert to chat at the back?  Note:  I think you were justified in getting angry.

I’m also sorry that some strange liquid started leaking on you from above.  Considering it was clear outside, I have been wondering what it was.  I did, however, enjoy the irony of you singing the refrain:

Bring me a day full of honest work
and a roof that never leaks
I’ll be satisfied

As the mystery liquid leaked down from above.

If it’s any consolation, your show was my favourite performance at ACL.  And I got some great pics.

    You can bet I would be speechless. I’m so jealous.

    I’m still waiting for Mullet Man to show up on your Flickr stream.

    Shannon – you *did* attend the show last night in spirit – I kept on critiquing the sound!

    I’ve been saving Mullet Man for the right moment…he will appear soon…

    LOL. I’ve ruined you for life.

    But… how was the sound? Could you hear the flute? (Was there flute?)

    Blurg – just typed a whole response to this and lost it! Let me summarize:
    -sat beside the sound guy, almost behind the sound board and I couldn’t discern any of the lyrics in the vocals. it was bad.
    -moved in front of the stage – don’t know if the sound guy fixed it, or what, but it was much better.

    flute! flute! viva la flute!
