Feb. 19 in EP Music History Trivia

Postby KarenZ » Tue Feb 19, 2008 10:15 am

Hi Folks,

On Feb. 19, 1999 I attended and EP show at Schubas in Chicago. Don Conoscenti played with Ellis and did one of his own songs as noted below. It's always a treat to re-visit the setlist from past shows. "Everything's Broken" and "Changing your name" were heard that night. Wow. :shock:

The setlist from 9 years ago today:

Take Me Down
Beautiful World
Everything’s Broken
Changing Your Name
The World Ain’t Slowing Down
Anastasia [Don Conoscenti]
The Martyr’s Lounge
3,000 Miles
Conversation with a Ghost
Look at the Wind Blow
Seize the Day
Angel in Manhattan
She Loves A Girl
[poem] Tornado Girl
Comes A Time
Seven
Weightless
Translucent Soul
Never Lived At All

Anyone want to take a guess what I heard for the first time that night? :)

There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

whew!!!

The trivia contest continues.....YEAH!!!

Figured you may have heard it before this show.

I've heard Ellis do it live.....and love his version of the song.

I'm going to give others a chance to get in on this one.

Great trivia question....thanks. :D

I'll take a stab at this one . . .

Is it "She Loves a Girl"?

I've never heard this one at a live show, so thought maybe he was trying it out when it was pretty new. Just a guess, though.

Gosh...was I ever wrong. I was thinking the only song that seemed out of place and therefore possibly a first was the older harmonica driven song.

Hmmn.... :D

Oops....I missed Wendy's guess. Sadly, she's wrong! :D

OK....here's your final clue. Re-read what I initially asked.

That's my final answer......Regis. :lol:

Guys and gals,

I didn't ask what song I heard for the first time. I asked:

Too funny, Paddy!

Ellis breaks a lot of strings, but have you ever seen him lose his pick in his guitar? Very funny watching him try to get it out--sort of like a little kid trying to get the last penny out of a piggy bank.

Thanks for the exasperating fun, Karen!

Thank YOU all!

I was feeling kinda down in the dumps (EP withdrawals - 5 weeks without a show) but all the discussion and chuckles today have helped lift my spirits, so thanks! You all are the best...what a terrific online community we have! :D
