Home after another great Jonathan Coulton concert. Paul and Storm opened for him, as usual, and a great time was had by all, including Adam Savage and presumably John Scalzi who were in attendance. Earlier in the day, I twittered at Jonathan that if he was still taking requests, I'd love to hear Famous Blue Raincoat. During the concert, he said he'd gotten a request "for a song that was a bit of a downer. ...from that guy right there" and pointed me out in the front row and named the song. There was a bigger audience reaction to the song than he (or I) expected (as he said after the concert). He did a great job of it, and I wish I could get a copy of the live version.
 
I'm tired, so I'm gonna jump straight to the setlist, and will probably edit the hell out of this entry tomorrow.
