I forgot to mention - Objects In the Rear View Mirror - really brilliant this week. Shook me to my core, especially second verse. That guy was so good!

And the show ended about 20 mins earlier too. Last week I remember looking up train times in the Opera House lobby around 11pm, this week I was in a hotel by around 10:45pm.
