Modern English - Moonbeam - San Francisco, Live, Sun. 7-15-12, Front row, Café Du Nord. New song from their upcoming album with all the original band members. Robbie Grey said they would try it out for us since we were so receptive.
This was only the 3rd time the band has performed Moonbeam, which probably explains why Robbie Grey kept the lyrics sheet in his hand during the song.
The fan's quip "Sounds like our governor!" was a reference to California's current governor Jerry Brown who was once widely known as Governor Moonbeam during his 1st term back in the 70's.
Midway through the show, a pair of fans kept on shouting out for the Café Du Nord's sound board operator to raise the bass' vocals. They even shouted their request after a song which bassist Michael Conroy didn't have a singing part.. The two were standing to the right of the stage, so perhaps their difficultly in hearing the vocals had more to do with the orientation of the venue's speakers. One time, after hearing the fans shout "bass vocals" several times, Robbie Grey pointed to the the sound board operator and jokingly said "I think you better go back and tell him!" :P
Guitarist Gary McDowell positioned a flipbook on a music stand which had all the chords written on it. For example, "GATHERING DUST. Intro. Soft. D. Chord with Vollum Pedal."
For the song "I Melt With You", Robbie Grey holds the mic right over my head, then later right in front of my mouth, prompting me to sing a few lines, lol. I guess that's what happens when you stand front row center :P
