An odd show, but memorable nonetheless. Looking at the tour schedule, I can understand why the performance seemed at times a bit, well, subdued. Still, I particularly recall being happily surprised at many moments. Certainly the darkest JB show I recall having seen, and at the time it seemed appropriate (lots of reasons, historical and otherwise. I know I felt it, anyway!) Fans of "Scandal in Bohemia" may not have been well-rewarded, oh well.
The opening band was Lovingkindness, whose show consisted of "Sgt. Pepper's" in its entirety. That may have contributed to the dark mood of the rest of the evening, now that I think . . .. It may just as well have been due to the assorted maritime smells that usually permeated Bogart's.
