    Thu 17 Jan – Toad the Wet Sprocket, Stephen Kellogg & the SixersOMG! Randy has gray hair! Well, so do I, so fair enough. He came out for a sound check on the kit after the opening act, and I had to convince myself it really was him. I had a good view: The Blonde and I stood (did I mention there aren't any seats in Jannus Landing's courtyard? I'll remember that next time!) only about ten feet from the edge of the stage.

    The opening act, Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers, did not suck, as promised. Their tunes were bouncy, rocked a bit, and entertained, even if I thought they went on a bit long.

    Ninety minutes after the "show time," Toad hit the stage. Yup, they're older; Glen's cut the mop short (as the current Last.fm artist picture shows, and we've seen it short in his solo gigs, e.g. last year at Skipper's Smokehouse), Todd sports a Van Dyke and a gut like mine behind the guitar, Randy's gone gray, and Dean's looking, well, softer than he did twelve years ago--but aren't we all?
