When we heard that John Mayer was coming to the River Center in Baton Rouge, we wanted to get tickets. Unfortunately, we found out a couple of days after the tickets went on sale, so decided that we would just stay home and be old people for the night instead of sitting in the nosebleed section and fighting off the vertigo.
But as luck would have it, one of our friends became violently ill and couldn't make it, so she gave us her tickets. Jackpot!
John Mayer sings a song called "Your Body is a Wonderland." Now you may remember that I published a song about a month before that song came out called "My Body is a Tanoryland" - it's all about the well-documented ferris wheel that's attached to my torso. The two songs don't sound anything alike, and my recording didn't come out all that great, but you and I know that I did it first.
But I don't hold a grudge - as long as pictures of him and Jessica Simpson getting it on appear in the tabloids, it's all good.
We hit up the River Center with my brother-in-law and his wife. We had great concert seats, and premium seats for people-watching. I swear, I've never seen so many butt-cracks in one room. Hopefully by the time my daughter(s) grow up, fashion will cycle back to being long skirts and chastity belts, otherwise she won't be able to leave the house.
Anyway, back to the main point...
Josh Rouse opened up for John Mayer. I remember Josh Rouse from The Coffee House on Sirius Satellite Radio because I associate "Rouse" with the "Rat Of Unusual SizE" from The Princess Bride. Mnemonics is the key!
John Mayer was great. Most of the songs he played were from his latest album "Continuum," and he also played most of his other singles. Did I mention he was getting it on with Jessica Simpson?
In conclusion, remember to: 1) wear underwear to concerts; 2) support your local music scene; and c) call us if you feel sick before your next concert.
Thanks again for the tix!
