The concert ran three hours and unfortunately, two of those hours were devoted to a complete, start to finish performance of Rush's new album, which isn't bad but also isn't exactly on heavy rotation on my iPod. I think it's fair to assume that most people were there to hear the old classics that we remember from our FM classic rock radio days. Still, there were some great drum solos, and when Rush did play an old classic it sounded great.
Nonetheless, unintentional comedy ruled the evening, inspiring me to send out 58 Facebook status updates during the show. That's about one per every three minutes of the show, but I didn't send out very much over the last hour of the concert so my posts were even more frequent than that for most of the evening, which many friends enjoyed and a few probably could have lived without.
I had fun posting all night and figured I'd save the posts on my blog for posterity. Smithsonian Foundation, you're welcome:
