Although other people have written about seeing Jonathan Coulton in concert on Friday night, I thought I'd add my two cents worth. Since I work in downtown San Francisco about a mile away from the Great American Music Hall, I walked over after I got out for the day. I suppose I could have found a way to kill time besides showing up 3 hours before they let in, but I've waited in longer lines. [livejournal.com profile] arianrhodstorm had kindly lent me her MiniDV camera as Jonathan had been soliciting the fans to bring extra cameras. (Oh, yeah. Did I mention he was making a live concert video? Well, I am now...) I got some exterior shots including a 180 of the marque of the Adult Sex Entertainment place around to the marquee of the GAMH.

A nice lady whose name I don't remember even though I heard it several times showed up eventually and set up a Zombification Station. By eating your brains applying makeup she would make you look like a zombie for the show. I was tempted, but was concerned about getting makeup on the camera. Unfortunately, we were told at the door that tripods would not be admitted, in spite of the request for extra camera work. Well, crap. Even if the resolution on the MiniDV was okay, I didn't want my picture shaking all around.

Around 6:30 or 7:00 I was joined by [livejournal.com profile] brigideire , [livejournal.com profile] cerulean_me , and [livejournal.com profile] zdashamber. I stowed the tripod and my heavy-ish backpack in the car and came back. Spiff and his wife arrived soon thereafter and I pulled him into line. I knew he had dinner tickets and that we'd get separated out together anyway, so I didn't feel too bad about it.

We interrupt this post for a public service message: It has come to my attention that some of my friends have not seen my video for Skullcrusher Mountain or any of Spiff's videos. If you haven't seen them, and/or are not familiar with Jonathan's music, I highly recommend them.

Read more about the concert )

[livejournal.com profile] zdashamber commented after that it was one of the best times she'd had at a concert. I'd have to agree, though there were some times the cameras made him and the audience a little self-conscious. The performance last year was missing some of that, but both performances and audiences had a lot of energy to them.

There are more more photos on Flickr, some better than others.

[profile] brigideire took me out last night to see Stephen Lynch. I've enjoyed his albums and his Comedy Central special. He is great to see live. Lots of great ad-libs. For those who are interested, here's his set list )

Stephen is very good at ad libbing live. He threatened to learn all 25 minutes of Freebird and play it for us if someone shouts it out next time, so the audience will beat the crap out of that person in the parking lot.

There were a couple well-known songs he missed, such as Lullaby and Hermaphrodite, but it was a very good show.
