Tod and Tull

Today a letter arrives from Lisa's brother containing a picture of Josh and his girlfriend Anna taken in New York. Cute!

This evening Derek makes it down in time for us to all go out for dinner at a new Chinese restaurant that has just opened in the Northgate mall, before heading off to the wonderful Civic Veteran's Memorial Hall for a Jethro Tull concert.

The concert was not as good as I expected. Early highlights included an excerpt from _Thick_As_A_Brick_, but things seemed to go downhill from there, with too many pieces from Ian Anderson's solo albums and not enough Tull classics. Anderson is still a phenomenal flautist, but his voice does not appear to be up to the task of singing these days.

Oh well - another band to be crossed off my list of "Bands to experience before they die".
