The B-52s were great last night, even though MoBob was grumpy at the long wait. (We were there before doors opened at 7pm, and they didn't come out til around 9:15pm.) The audience was very much an older demographic than the usual 9:30 Club crowd, and the place was packed. I think the group in front of us was a family with college-aged kids. Anyway, I'm amazed at how energetic the band was, especially given that they must all be in their 50s by now.

I didn't recognize about half the songs. I realized coming home that they didn't perform the following, which I consider B-52s standards:
* Planet Claire
* Strobe Light
* Song for a Future Generation
* Summer of Love
* Cosmic Thing
* Dance This Mess Around

MB and I left when they exited the stage (school night) so we missed out on the encore of "Rock Lobster."

I'd like to see the B-52s. I'd hate to miss "Rock Lobster". As long as they played that, "Roam" and "private idaho", i'd be ok.

They did! And I can't believe I remembered all the words to both songs!
