Connecticut Boy Comes Home


I saw John Mayer at the New England Dodge Music Center (which I still call "The Meadows") up in Hartford tonight. Ben Folds was the support act and did a fun, if largely forgettable, set. Mayer was in good form after a week's break in his tour, and of course Connecticut being his home state, he seemed fired up to play in front of family and friends. Sorta like Springsteen at the Meadowlands, I guess. Anyway, he opened with "No Such Thing" and worked his way through a good selection from Continuum as well as older standouts. Whenever I go to a concert, I have a mental checklist of what I hope to hear, and Mayer hit most of them ("No Such Thing," "Neon," "Waiting On The World To Change," "Georgia Why," "Gravity"). I confess to having a soft spot in my heart for "Daughters," and that was the obvious omission from my list. But it was a great show overall.

Most of my Treo snapshots from the night are worthless, but this one is passable:
