A couple of weeks ago, I took the advice of a friend and decided to attend this for the price of $10
The lineup of Waking Lights and Mansions was absolutely perfect. Mansions had an am explosion, but recovered nicely and put on a great set.
As for Ace, I've been on the fence about Gold Rush. In the first few album listens, I was only impressed with 2 or 3 songs. Fortunately it only took an awesome show for me to finally embrace it with open arms.
The setting was extremely intimate with only Ace onstage playing all the instruments to a delay system so it would sound like a full band. The crowd was full of die-hards, singing nearly every word to every song. Several guys were openly hitting on him and/or shouting inappropriate things, including a typical "Free Bird" request, all of which Ace rebuttaled in the most awesome way possible. The entire show felt like an episode of MTV's Unplugged and I loved every moment of it. In the end, even Ace said it was one of the most fun shows he's played in forever. I agree, Ace, I agree.
Someone taped "Ever So Sweet" which perfectly captures the feel of the entire night in one song. Enjoy.
Also, he encore'd with "Sunday Drive"
If it's not too late for you, definitely check out this tour. Great set-list and probably the most intimate side of Ace you'll get aside from him playing in your living room.
