very sparse crowd — the theatre holds approximately 2,200; we estimated
about 600 in attendence.
Bruce wasn't as talkative as he was when we saw him on the first night
of the tour in Brantford, but did seem as relaxed.
The band was superb — Julie's harmony vocals & keyboards really
add extra colour to the sound. The instrumental breaks on To
Raise The Morning Star were
exceptional — as they went back into the song at the end, I had
almost forgotten what song they were playing.
Bruce told the audience that we would be guinea pigs for a new song that they had been working on (Tell The Universe) "for Bush and his cronies who feel there's not enough pain in the world".
As we were leaving the theatre for the lobby at the end of the show, we spotted Ani Difranco, who was nice enough to sign an autograph and chat with us for a minute.

"Tell the universe what you've done / Out in the desert with your smoking gun / Looks like you've been having too much fun / Tell the universe what you've done."
Marc Olszewski adds that the chorus went roughly:
"You've been projecting your shit at the world... You can self-destruct, that's your right / But keep it to yourself if you don't mind."
