Also, while European women aren't usually fat, most smoke, which is a huge turnoff for me personally. But really, what the fuck...it's just a one night stand anyways, so who cares at that point.

I'm on the subway listening to other people on the subway try to explain to people far younger than them why a "botar" show is important

It was mostly sitb. A little htt, a little egn, and surprisingly little from the ep... You know, literally the only actual release from this alleged band.

Sorry, should have checked this during the show.

Piano guy was awesome, wanted to hear more of the orchestra.

Good times all around.

A few thoughts:

* Overall, the show was great, I'm glad I flew up for it and definitely thought it was worth the price of the ticket.

* I was super excited to see Dan Potthast up on stage. Also really pumped to see Dan Ross. (I think that was him anyway, pretty sure.) I wish other original members were back tho. Would have been great to see Jamie or Mike Soprano. A little surprised they weren't there to be honest.

* Piano guy was amazing and totally stole the show.

* Song choices could have been a little better. As Aleks pointed out, it was kinda surprising they didn't play every song from BOTAR's only CD. It did feel like mostly SitB. My personal nostalgia favors EGN, but the songs were all still good.

* The orchestra made all the songs have a much much fuller sound, but I agree with Injun that it would have been nice to just hear more from them.

* I had this weird nostalgia after the show. Definitely felt like the end of an era for me. As someone who used to go to tons of shows and hang out with some of the guys before and after, it just felt different. Very businesslike and like they've hit this different stage of their lives, both personally and professionally. Which, is totally fair and expected after about 15 years of this, but it was kinda sad for me since they were such a big part of my youth.

* I really loved the crowd.They were a lot of fun throughout the show and very into the whole thing. It was a great atmosphere.

I met up with Alex before the show, I should have coordinated better on this with other people who went.Maybe in 3 or so years when they do this again.

I've been enjoying my annual Toh Kay show, really fun with the older crowds who have a been listening to these guys forever. It was definitely more enjoyable in terms of strictly the crowd than the "Final Shows". No 15 year olds cosplaying as a lion with a machine gun

Also, get off my lawn.

I did really enjoy the show, it was great to hear with the orchestra, I just felt like they could've picked better songs and, I know this is crazy but I was really hoping they'd have some new material to show off

I guess it really just felt like a streetlight show with an orchestra, which was cool, but I was expecting it to be a little more.... botar, not streetlight.
