Went to The Loo last night to see a show, and came away pleasantly surprised.
A friend had a free ticket to see Paramour and No Doubt. Not two of my favorite bands, but with row 30 and center section seats at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, I had nothing to lose.
No Doubt was amazing.
I am not a big fan of the band. I hate singer Gwen Stefani's solo girl power pop mush, too.
But I respect the fact they played their own instruments, had tight arrangements and a really cool stage, video and light presentation.
C'mon. If you don't like a sweaty Stefani bouncing around on a stage, you are not a red-blooded American male.
The whole band looked they were having a blast. I've only seen a few performers hold a crowd of 20,000 people in the palm of their hands, and Stefani was one of them.
Got in without delay, left during the last song and beat the crowd out of Earth City, home by 1 a.m.
It was a great night!
