saw Willie Nelson last night!

it was supposed to be outdoors at Stubb's but they moved it to the convention hall cause the weather.

i'd never seen the red headed stranger before.. great to see him here. it seemed to be a holy ceremony of sort for Austinites. and he definately brings out the ladies... yow!

people throw their cowboy hats on stage and he puts them on his head and throws them back to them. he also went through about a dozen bandanas through the night.

he played for about two hours, did all the hits.. he had a great band. totally effortless playing.. his voice sounded wonderful.

he did some Waylon tunes, other standards, "Georgia on My Mind", "All of Me" and a cover of "Me and Bobby Mcghee"..

his crew started unmiking and tearing down some of the backline before they were even done but they kept playing..

they also had a woman on stage doing a painting of him in the band during the show.

saw him last night and another madcap texas legend, Ornette Coleman, the night before..hee haw!
