Traffic was scary on the way down to Santa Cruz, but we got down there timely enough. Then came the "trying to find a parking lot while getting scooped onto one way streets" portion of the evening. Fortunately, [ profile] brigideire's parking mojo kicked in and we got on street parking a block away from the Casino entrance and only had to put 30 minutes on the meter. And once we got there we managed to find a place where we could see the stage and brigideire was able to sit on a planter. I stood behind her and took some video.

Set list:
Red And Black
Before The Kiss, A Redcap
Burnin' For You
Harvester Of Eyes
Harvest Moon
Black Blade
Don't Fear The Reaper
Hot Rails To Hell

A short show, which was expected since it was free. In the middle of Godzilla, the bass player was introduced as Rudy Sarzo, originally of Quiet Riot (and he played the opening licks to "Bang Your Head"), who later joined Whitesnake ("Slide It In"), and then was invited to play with Ozzy ("Crazy Train" with the crowd shouting "AY! AY! Ay!").

Not only was the show short, but the solos were, too. It was a fun "greatest hits" Readers Digest version of BOC. And I had a great time.

Ah, lucky man. Don't Fear the Reaper resides on every MP3 player I own (yes, I have more than 2 now...even the one I have for audio books has it on there!) and all my computers, too. :) Glad you had a good time!

I'd really like to see them live some day, let me know next time they are in the area please.

Glad they put on a good show and you had a good time.
