Take That With My 'Open Hand'
OHHHHHHH, the real joy for a person who's seen the Hand for the past few years, they started the set with a different song!!! PHEW! Change it up man! Thank goodness!!! They opened with "Werden (tentatively called?)," one of the heavier songs on the New Album instead of their usual "Hard Night" intro and song from their "You and Me" album. They played a couple more new numbers from "Honey" which were, "Cool" and "Herons." I was so looking forward to hear "Herons" live even though Matt Talbott sings on the album version. Goodness gracious, that song rockt live!!!
Alex Organ (for those not in the know is Jason Gerken's half brother) pounded the drums last night. He was so damn unforgiving! Relentless! It runs in the family I guess. The rest of the band was tight! The Angels add a new dimension to the band, making it funner? Shit, that's not even a word, but funner is what I'm going to run with and say about this new lineup!!!
